Wow.. it's been a long time!

There are times I miss blogging, but I also remember the time when it seemed like a chore. I may be ready to start blogging again. We'll see. The thing about blogging is that when you stay away too long, people abandon the blog so what's the point of blogging?

So, anyway, 2011 is going to be a big year. William will turn one in April, Clare will be three in May and Colin will be five in May. Where did that time go? Colin turning five?? It's unbelievable to me. They have given us so much joy. And the lovely Cate will be married in September so there is a big wedding to plan and also a fun bridal shower in July.

Not to forget knitting because, yes, this is supposed to be a knitting blog. I have knit many many projects since my last knitting report. Hats, socks, scarves, wraps.. cute things and practical things. But the thing that made the most waves is the hat below. The pattern is called "Loved" by Talitha Kuomi and can be purchased on the Knitpicks website.

My daughter said people stop them on the street, at school, at the mall and everywhere to inquire about the hat. This hat was an easy knit but for some reason I didn't really enjoy the process. But if there is anyone out there reading this... and you have a special little girlie girl, this is the thing to knit for her.
