Happy New Year!

Welcome to 2008! I rang in the new year at a family wedding. My niece Amanda is the beautiful bride.

It was a lovely wedding, with good food, music, lots of laughter and even some stealth knitting.

Not who you expected, eh?

We didn't stay late because Alex was staying over at a freind's house and Luke was home alone. I called Luke every couple of hours to see how he was doing. At 9:30 he told me he was fine, but that I could come home at 10:00. It would have been nice to stay, but we respected his limits and came home. When we pulled the car into the garage, he cracked the door open to peep at us and we could see Dexter peeking through too. So cute! I know Luke felt safe at home because of Dexter.

My brother-in-law stayed overnight with us, so we all stayed up until midnight to ring in the new year. I managed to finish off the first FO of the new year. The Chalet socks are done like dinner and now I can knit for myself! Woo hoo!

Pattern: Chalet Socks by Nancy Bush
Yarn: Regia Silk
Needles: 2.75mm except for the heels and toes which were on 2.25mm
These were knit to fit a man's size 11. I have very little yarn left over.


  1. What a nice way to start the new year. I couldn't even enjoy a toast, because I had to pick up my oldest from a party. All I wanted to do was go to bed. My gosh, what happened to me?

  2. Oh LOVE the Chalet socks! Just trying a new yarn and that looks like absolutely the way to go. Think the pattern would suit knee or over the knee socks?

    Happy New Year to you from wild wet and windy West Cork.
