Happy New Year! You can still say that nine days in, right? We all actually made it to midnight this year, something that I don’t think has happened in a very long time, probably not since I had new babies that were up to eat around then! Next year I think I’ll actually plan some fun things for the kids now that they seem to show interest in it.
I haven’t done any planning for this year, usually I plan out what projects I’d like to attempt to do but I just haven’t sat down to figure it out. I’ll get to it. The year has started out kind of weird for me, so maybe after some things have passed and I get more information so I can focus on the more fun things for the year.
But, I have finished my first project of the year. I knit my husband a balaclava, something that he has been asking me to knit for him for entirely too long. For some reason, I thought it was going to be a lot more difficult than it ended up being. I used a free pattern (found here) and some yarn that my husband picked out, Loops & Threads Barcelona in the Onyx colorway. I like how the yarn knits up but I think it’s going to fuzz like crazy pretty easily, I can always knit him another. Hopefully, it keeps him warm for the rest of winter while he’s working outside.
