Happy New Year

Yesterday was an exciting day for my children, they had a day in the city to watch the Chinese New Year parade. They really enjoyed it and in keeping with the day they had we ended up with a family meal of Crispy Duck pancakes and some rather nice bubbly for Mommy. So back to my week away and some of the things I got up to whilst the babes slept. I managed to nearly finish my mittens, I tried to get the stripes to match but gave up and thought it better to just go with the flow. I need to rummage through my button collection to find two small buttons to hold the flaps, I can not make my mind up to either go for something a bit eye catching or simple clear buttons?
This is my next project for me, its a cardigan in a rather attractive heather colour. Its on size '8' pins. Huge! especially as I have been used to knitting with 3.25-4mm on the last four projects. I needed to see some quick results and a knit I can do around the kids...
This is my NEW bag I fell in love with it but did not buy it as I use a bag I adore all the time so thought it would be an impulse buy. Anyway I eventually went back to buy it and I am so pleased I did, it makes me SMILE!
Sorry for this poor photo the light is poor and I needed to use the flash so its not such a good shot, but you get the idea, a gift for me from me!!! Its a Miffy mug, I love this cute little bunny, and a pen to go with it.
You must go and read French Knots comment on yesterdays post. It made me laugh out loud, the reality of a treat night for Mommy!!! Thanks for that, Mmmm a treat might help shake those post Holiday blues...

I wish you were closer to me so you could show me how to knit. Everything you make is sooooo fabulous! I love the gloves and I love the beginnings of your cardigan and your little boy's coat -- though, you knew that!

And I love your bunny cup! So adorable!
