Mom is home from the nursing home! Hip hip hooray! She sounded so happy yesterday when she called to tell me. There's no place like home! This is the best news ever. A great start to the new year!
I finally got back to knitting Fetching. I just had the second one to do, then got sidetracked with another pair of fingerless mitts. They are so soft and fuzzy. I love them! The color reminds me of a Granny Smith apple. I need to take a break from mittens for a while. My wrists just ache in the middle of the night and get numb and it wakes me up. This happens when I knit mittens. I think it's all those extra little tugs where the DPN's meet up. So, if I lay off mittens for a while this will go away and I'll be fine. I'm now making a hat (for me!) on circular needles. My first project in the round on circulars. I'm excited! Something new to learn!
I was in Target yesterday buying oh such fun household goods, like detergent, soap, etc., when I came across this little piggy bank. I wanted it so bad. It's just so damn cute. It called out "buy me", so I did. It was in their dollar merchandise. So this little piggy now lives in my house. I will feed him spare change and dollar bills until there's a nice little amount built up to go to the LYS and buy something special. I wonder how long this will take.
