It’s my favorite day of the year again…the last day, new year’s eve or as we say Ole Year’s Day. The stressfulness of the holiday season is over and now we can all relax. I have my usual rituals and customs, (see this old post) but this year is a bit different. In past years, my goal has been to “set the tone”, change the energy and “make good things happen” in the new year. This year I just love where I am, where my family is and where our lives are headed. For the first time in about 15 years I feel no need to change a thing. I’m just going to wrap myself up in all the love and positive energy around here and enjoy.
I don’t have to say it’s been one of the fullest and best years of my life. Giving birth to the most beautiful, smart and simply dazzling baby ever. I’m allowed to say that as a proud mum. I know some of you are gagging…sorry. I got to know another side of my husband who, at times, I butted heads with. But at the end of the day I realize is even more a partner and friend than ever before. There have been moments when I was so unfair to him, “hogging” Kira to myself, forgetting that I’m a wife, etc. but he never, ever waived in his devotion or spoke his mind in complaint. I am twice blessed. And there are my little puppies, who I”m sure have felt a bit neglected but as only a dog can do, they love you unconditionally, a tail-wag always at the ready.
My family…I have no words for, to describe their love and support. I will simply say thank you Mum, Dad, Vern and May.
No major plans for tonight. It’s hard to get a baby sitter on new year’s eve, so we are staying in. That is always my first choice. The darling hubby has a lobster dinner planned, that he is cooking. Even better. Kira’s bedtime is about 6:30pm so we have the whole evening…NICE!!
The one thing I do plan to do a lot of in the new year is knit, of course. And for some reason all I want to knit are socks. And I thought to end the year I’d show off the pair I just finished for my sister (only a week late for Christmas).
There are the 3 reps of the EZ’s Fishbone Cable.
Standard slip stitch heel
As I said in the other post about these, they were suppose to be Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Arch Shaped Stockings/Socks but I changed things a bit. I think I’ll name these Jules Vern Socks (It’s an inside thing). So there it is.
Pattern: Jules Vern Socks
Source: my own design
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Socks That Rock, Medium Weight in the Beryl colorway
Amount: 1 skein
At some point I’ll write down what I did….in the meantime. Enjoy my sista, I love ya!
Happy New Year Everyone!!!!
Love to all and many blessings!!!
