You know as much as I love winter, it's totally bringing me down. Perhaps, if there were snow it would be better, but alas nothing yet. There is ice in the forecast for next week, so here's hoping.

So yeah, I have a lot of things going on that will hopefully be tied up next month. I desperately want to get back to work and I'm trying to muster up some motivation. My sewing machine is starting to collect dust. My knitting needles, however, are burning it up. I recently took a knitting lesson at a local Tulsa yarn shop, Loops. It was a private lesson, so I was able to ask for help on a couple of different things I've struggled with figuring out. I started my first project on circular needles and unfortunately, um it's not looking so hot. The lady at Loops said I could bring it in for help, but I'm too embarrassed at how bad it looks at this point. Isabell is helping to hide some of my mistakes. The yarn is soo pretty though! I think I may start it over and then take it in! 

I also got my hair cut this past week. I realize it may still look long to some people, but this is the shortest it's been in like 5 years. I don't think I have the guts to go shorter though. 

I hope everyone is staying warm and toasty. I'm ready to watch a movie and knit.

The Happy Hooker

For Christmas, my sis-in-law got me a book called The Happy Hooker
 which teaches how to crochet. While I will always knit, I'm having fun learning 
something new. The movement of crochet is very addictive. I've been 
making "granny squares" to piece together to make an afghan.

I'm busy, busy this week trying to get caught up on everything! I hope everyone is enjoying the first full week of the new year!
