Inspired by my mom’s odd interest in sock monkeys, I began to craft a cap for my mom for Christmas. I utilized my knowledge of the colors my mom likes and figure that pink, grey and white would be acceptable colors as opposed to traditional sock monkey brown, red and white.
I think it ended up pretty well! She looks like she likes it!
2013 has now come to a close! It has been a year full of changes in my life. The majority have been for the better… The other changes that might not have been for the better, I simply can’t remember them! I’m thankful for 2013 and I’m edited to start 2014.
With graduation looming ever closer (May) and certain running races, knitting projects and other things I have planned for 2014 I think the word attainment is an excellent choice for word of the year.
Attainment (noun): the action or fact of achieving a goal toward which one has worked.
I plan to achieve multiple goals this year and I think the word attainment is the perfect word to describe what I want to work towards in 2014!
I’ve got to work both 12/31 and 1/1 however that isn’t going to stop me from coming up with a list of things I want to attain in 2014! I think I’ll post that some time in this first week of the year!
I went home for a whirlwind of fish days this past week!
On the 22nd I flew out to sunny CA after virtually no sleep. The entire trip included a whole bunch of family time, friend time, pet loving time, knitting (not as much as I wished and even some light shopping!
This girl got spoiled for Christmas! I got a small shopping trip in on the 26th that wasn’t on my dime! I also got an iPad mini which I have already downloaded the dreaded nursing course books and the highly anticipated “for-fun” books and the ever necessary knitting patterns. I found some SUPER cute running tank tops!
Here is some photographic evidence of the fun I had.
Kitty was a sleepy puppy!
The new dog likes to smooch…. on hair and slobber over EVERYTHING.
The whole family together!!! Minus me, but someone hasd to take the photo!
My mom and I. Somehow I managed to avoid pictures of me and dad or me and Joey!
The newest addition to the family hopes that y’all had a Merry (not slobbery) Christmas!
There are a few knitting posts coming up soon!
I’ve got a finish! This is a preemie hat I cast on during the beginning of the movie “And the Band Played On.” I then finished the hat the very same day… My needles were on fire!!!
Beyond that, finals are over! I came out of finals week relatively unscathed… I made the Dean’s list… Honor roll for college kiddos
