In between Christmas and New Year is a funny old time isn't it? A time for reflection, a fresh start, which leaves me often out of sorts and a feeling of being in limbo pervades. Like many others I find it takes a while to let go of my restlessness and relax into holiday mode, eventually finding a comfortable rhythm just as it's time to start back at school and work again. I'm not feeling particularly reflective this year. I'm very thankful that 2009 was a good year for my family, but I'm itching to get on with 2010. Patience was never my strong point.
In these funny in between days, in between playing Uno, Connect4, eating, tobogganing, watching TV, more eating, reading and sleeping this past week, I knit my hurricane hat. And took photos of it using my remote (great Christmas present, thanks to hubby). I like it. It's so simple, although maybe I'm a little egg heady in it. It matches my mustard scarf (which I knit before Christmas) using merino which is so soft and snuggly. Both patterns can be found for free on Ravelry.
Roll on 2010. I'm ready.
