Post-Christmas recovery

Well, another Christmas under our belts, and it was a nice one! Kato’s daughter spent Christmas Eve with us and we opened gifts together. Santa was very kind to all of us this year, with wine being a huge hit this time around. We received a total of 14 bottles from family and friends, so I’ll post a new cellar list on the “Wine” page this week.

Now that the holiday is behind us (and to help us avoid getting anywhere near a post-Christmas sale), we’re going to tackle cleaning up the garage today. I won’t bore you with the details—it’s boring enough for me. It’s just fortunate that I like to clean!

I am happy to pass along that I completed foiling the OSU Beavers window for Muff on Saturday evening. It was quite the celebration in the household—you would have thought I’d actually completed it! High fives all around, and Kato even handed me a glass of wine to celebrate. Here’s the window, ready for soldering:

I may actually complete this in January, just like I committed to Muff–yeah!

I’ll leave you today with some more knitting project porn. Muff was good to me this year. Two cool projects in the matter of a week!

Pea Pod Cardigan

The “Pea Pod Cardigan” pattern is from Knit 2 Together by Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark (she also gave me this book), and she gave me eight balls of Rowan Cashsoft DK (color 523) and beautiful shell buttons. Mmmmm…nothing is better than extra fine merino, microfiber and cashmere against the skin. If it weren’t for DH, I’d want to marry this yarn.



  1. oooh, that’s a cute cardigan. I wish they had more patterns for men. hmmffp

  2. that sweater looks pretty fun! I want to do something cool w/ bobbles soon 🙂
