And then there was one...

The last few months have been a little rough. Some days harder than others, but on a whole, not exactly the easiest things to get through. And yes, I have been through harder. But it is hard to keep that perspective when you are going through something that, at the time, feels like the hardest thing on earth.

But things are getting better now. Lighter.

There are still hard patches, and I don't imagine life is all rainbows and sunshine and unicorns. But it's getting there.

And that, my dears, is life.

On the knitting front, hella busy. There's been sweaters and sockies and blankies and toys. So very many things. And I can't seem to locate where the pictures have all gone at the moment. But, this is my coffee tunic, finished just last week:

And I have already worn it. I love this. It was a relatively easy knit (especially given that I worked Christmas Eve day with nothing to do but sit around knitting), and it looks awesome.

I am currently working on a blanket for my boss's soon to be nephew. Just a simple basketweave pattern. Nothing earth shattering. And such a quick knit.

And I am participating in something a friend of mine posted (I can't really say "started" since she didn't...but she was the starter for this year for me)...Pay it forward 2011. I have my 5 people who I am going to make something handmade for...and once the blanket is done, I will start on that.

I am super in love with my new bosses. They are very cool and down to earth people. They keep me busy, which I love, without being crazy insane busy...and are appreciative of all that I do. Don't get me wrong...I am not someone who needs praise for every little thing that I do (especially when it is called my job), but I love that they acknowledge when I have busted ass for them...or when I have done something that is outside of the realm of my "job description". :)

Well kiddies, I am off to watch the rest of the Merlin marathon and knit for a bit (the little guy is down for a nap, so this is prime knitting time). Hope everyone finds their own measure of peace this year.
