We are finally off to Hawaii via Princess Cruise's. I'm trying to pack now, and I'm obsessed with packing enough yarn and projects to knit on the cruise. See ya all in 15 days. Regular blogging to commence when I return.

It's a New Day

I'm happy to report a finished object. Those have been so scarce around here that I should rejoice out loud.

I finished the hubby's scarf.I had a reprieve because we decided not to exchange Christmas gifts this year. Our anniversary is next month, 17 yrs, and we are taking a 2 week Hawaiian cruise, so that is our Xmas and anniversary present all in one. Since we decided not to exchange, I slowed down on the stealth knitting. I finished his scarf on New Years day. Next I'm going to knit a cap or mittens to match.

I'm not one for New Years resolutions, but one thing I plan to do this year is knit more and knit from my stash. I'm not going to join the knit from your stash group, because I don't plan to deprive myself. If I choose to buy yarn I 'm not going to beat myself up over it.

Here's one of my super cool Xmas gifts that I bought for myself.
It's an e-book reader, or as my daughter calls it, a book pod. So far, I have about 20 books loaded. It's going to come in handy on my cruise. I won't have to pack 20 books and take up valuable yarn space.
