happy new year!

We had every intention of going out last night. A party that included children, which is our favorite. But as we were getting ready, my husband started to feel terrible. You know, achy joints, head ache, stomach ache, the whole thing. So much to the children's chagrin, we had a change of plans. After a quick trip to the store for some treats and a couple of movies for the kids, all happiness was restored. We ended up watching Star Wars and Princess Diaries, and eating lots of popcorn and ice cream. Of course my husband did not want any libations so I had to drink my favorite wine alone. It was all good. We stayed up until midnight to toot our noise makers. Of course the children had to have their own little "sleep over" in the den, and you know what that means.......up WAY to early. So needless to say, I have been able to get in some good knitting.
After last night, and a couple of rows this morning, this is what I have completed. Sorry folks, I know the picture stinks. I am making this for Libby, and changing the guitar motif to a flower.

A slightly better shot of the project.
Here is wishing everyone a very beautiful new year. May it be filled with health, happiness, and many completed projects!
