i feel like the new year has started off with a bang! it's really awesome. yesterday my little man had his party to celebrate being 5. and it was so much fun! everyone had a fantastic time! i feel like now we can start looking into making a bit of a routine. we will be going to alberta soon but in the meantime, i'm searching for a routine... and some serious stretching today. lol. honestly, instead of hosting a birthday party for a 5 year old i feel like i just ran a marathon... my legs are killing me! or maybe the two feel the same? lol!
also yesterday was the premier for season 3 of downton! eeeeks! i hadn't realized it until about half an hour before it aired. i was so excited!! and i just want to snuggle down and knit. the kal was even bumped up to yesterday so that people could cast on while watching the first episode! sadly, i still haven't fully decided on a pattern.. but i will! i have a gorgeous skein of madtosh dk in the tern colourway that screams downton.... well in a most polite and british way. ;)
first though, i have some custom orders to work on, and how's this for ambition? i'm planning on knitting up the twiggy cardigan before heading to alberta! (which could be any time really)... i think it's doable. haha who needs sleep? oh yah, i do... but i still think i can do it. i've got the yarn, and i've just recently freed up the needles i need . i can't wait to show you the most recent f.o. but it's a pressie, so i'll have to wait to post pics about it.
my hubby still has another week of holidays, so routine will be slow in getting there, but it also means i might have a bit more knitting time! eeks :) and today is a perfect day for it. it's absolutely pouring out.... my kiddo has lots of new toys to play with , what with christmas and his birthday.... and my hubby is beyond excited that hockey is back on!
how about you? what's on your needles right now? are you participating in the downton kal? have you cast on yet? or are you like me, and still in the deciding stage... ;) i'd love to chat! it's a perfect knitting day today... xo
