« Honest - It Really Never Snows In Albuquerque | Main | And.....They're Off! »

December 31, 2006



Well, I'm relieved! :-). The comments on where the blog was headed were a bit ominous to me. I'm glad to know it is just a change in direction, rather than a retirement or something equally dire. :-)

FWIW - I rather like the the Shaped Ribbed Sweater on you. I think the neckline is prettier than the one in the picture and the ribbed lines are slimming.

Happy New Year! Here's to straight A's in 2007!


Happy New Year to you and your family Bron!

I love the Calorimetry-I have some Shadows and have been wondering what to make with it-but it's gotta be crocheted, so I'll keep looking-but how pretty that came out for you.

It's warm here today, about 52 (warm for here and this time of year) with predictions of lots of rain tonight and all day tomorrow (much like Christmas day here). The snow looks so pretty, but I don't envy the shoveling. Elena writes these little journal entries at school and some get hung in the first grade hall. Her last one for 2006 was called "Snow" and it stated she loved snow, Dad shoveled it all and mom just sat inside-I was a little embarrassed by how lazy she made me sound, but she then asked me if I shoveled too and I told her "no", so I guess she was right-LOL. It's probably only snowed a few times since Elena's been born, so she only has fleeting memories of what we actually do with the snow.

Anyway, have a restful day with the family.


I love your calorimetry! That's a lot of snow, even for those of us used to it! Take a nice hot bath to relax your muscles! Oooo... that tree skirt is going to be lovely!


I spent most of the year making lots of small projects, and I feel a need to add more cardis although I should actually finish the ones I started.


Happy New Year, Bron!

First of all, Nantucket looks FANTASTIC! It looks just great. ; )

Secondly, send that snow up here. I have absolutely NONE!

Thirdly, I finished another Calorimetry yesterday, too! A birthday present for my sister. My girls really weren't interested, but I have yarn for a couple more and think I might knit them up as "gifts on-hand," also.

Fourthly, lastly, but certainly not leastly, Happy New Year to you and your family!


Nantucket is gorgeous - a beautiful pattern that looks wonderful on you :) Calorimetry? I'm going to have to give it a whirl since I've seen several examples around the blogdom and they all look great!

I hope your new year is exciting, but not traumatic, joyful, but not manic and full of humor, hope and heart :) Lots of love, kiddo :)


Your calorimetry looks great, I'll have to try one with that yarn. I finished one yesterday that I used Paton's SWS for and love it.

I have the neckline thing too, though I'm pretty sure I was strangled in bed in a past life. I can't lie on my back for the life of me - at least not without having a panic attack. And even some t-shirts have collars that freak me out.

And as one last comment, I don't think the sweater makes you look like a marshmallow either, I quite like it. :-)

Happy New Year!


I've been toying with making Calorimetry but I think you've decided me. It just seems so quick and so functional!

I've been fairly quiet in commenting of late but I always look forward to reading your blog.

Happy New Year to you and your family!


I love that tree skirt! I remember seeing it before, but I can't remember where. Could you let me know, because I may just have to make it to go with my purple tree... I just couldn't find any fabric for a sewn tree skirt (all the purples seamed to be leaning to the red side of the spectrum).

Also, I think the pink ribbed sweater looks great on you. If, however, you decide you really don't... please don't trash it! I'll take it... I'll send you postage and a fair price or something in exchange.


Paula - Thanks for the props on Shaped Rib. I'm still debating whether I like it or not!

Leisel - I swear I won't chuck it without talking to you first!

Deneen - I'm thinking a crocheted Calorimetry might have to be my first design of 2007. Lots of people have been saying they'd like to see something similar and I've got an idea or two in my head. Hmmmm...

Thanks, Andrea - It's kinda scary to hear a Canadian tell me that's a lot of snow! LOL And I can't wait to start on that tree skirt. Of course, the mail hasn't gotten through for a couple of days so who knows when the yarn will get here!

See, Vera, you & I can just flip-flop with our projects in 2007. You can be the Queen of Cardis & I can do some fun things like you do!

Vicki - Thanks so much! Happy New Year to you & yours! (By the way - I'll be sending a semi truck filled with snow your way. Be on the lookout! LOL)

Thanks, Anne. I appreciate your opinion on Shaped Rib. Sometimes it's hard to step back & see ourselves as we really are. :) Oh - and I have some T-shirts that freak me out too, so don't think you're alone! I think my neck-thing has gotten worse every passing year. Sigh.

Nancy - Sometimes I'm the WORST at commenting, but I hope you know I'm always a faithful reader of your exploits. Happy New Year!

Leisel - My bad, I should've said where it's from: Handknit Holidays by Melanie Falick. While I'm at it, there are a few more projects from that book I'd like to try too. :)


Happy new year to you and your family! :)

[SFU is one of my favorite shows ... though the series definitely had some less-than-stellar seasons, it was still awesome. :) ]

Congrats on squeezing in another FO! I just got back from a trip to NYC and your Nantucket looks -gorgeous-! Whoo! Maybe someday I will be able to churn out the garments like you! ;) I can hope, right! ;)


Happy New Year Bron!! Love your snow pics. :o) Yeah, I'll swap you cherry tomatoes for snow any day. Hey - I'd get to wear all my knits! I'm a lemming too... (sigh) Love the Calorimetry. I might have to make myself one of these. I hate how I look in beanies - like a nob. I need some hair showing, so this might just be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing your new projects on the go. Thanks for a fun read in 2006. Hugs.


I made the Fountain Lace cardi in Cotton Ease and I love it! I hope you will too :)
