Quickie!

Oooh this is my first post of 2008! Again, happy new year to everyone!

This is going to be a quick post because I have tons of stuff to do today. My mom and her boyfriend AND my boyfriend's parents are coming over for dinner. They've never met before. How exciting! But I have a lot of cleaning and cooking to do. I'm making beef in a beer sauce, with rice and steamed carrots. I'll also have bread from the bakery. Yum. And a salad. And for dessert, I'm going to make an apple crisp and a chocolate cake. I promise the diet will resume tomorrow!

Yesterday, I met a friend for brunch and gave him his belated birthday gift, the Fake Isle hat. I am SO going to knit for him again! He loved the hat and couldn't believe I made it for him and he wore it when we got out of the restaurant and he kept looking at it everytime we passed a window. It was great!

Also, I'm a little bit bored with my current projects. I need something new. I'm really liking a cardigan in the new Knit Simple magazine. You can see it here. (It's the first one, in the Over easy section). How cute.

That's all for today! I'll be back in a day or two with WIP pics... maybe even the first FO of 2008!

That hat was definately *him*. I have no problems believing he was thrilled!

You are making beef? Aren't you still a vegeterian?

Happy New Year!

Isn't it great when someone you knit for LOVES what you made them? It feels great.

Wow, that IS a great cardigan. Do you plan on using stash yarn for it?

That over easy cardigan is very cute. I could see it in some malabrigo!
