We have been talking about resolutions at work lately. A patient that came to our office said "I am not going to say a bad word to anyone this year" that is my resolution. I asked hows it going. He said I have not had much to say. That cracked me up. I found it to be a very honorable resolution.
I only had two this year. Because every year I make them and I give up and then get depressed about it. So this year two, that I hope I can keep. That is to use up my stash of yarn and to chill out. I get so worked up and worried over everything. The older I get the more I worry, goes with the mom territory I guess! Any who... presenting my neapolitan granny. This was a combination of yarns that I had in my stash, I love these colors together and will probably do another baby afghan in these colors. This will be donated to Project Linus.

Yes It has been cold here! The coldest I remember in 25 years! I even had frost on my car the other day! Gets me in the mood to make hats! I made this little beauty watching "Good fellas" last night. Gosh I remember in the 90's thinking what a cool movie! Last night all I could think was how violent and sad it was. I love Paul Sorvino, De Niro and Ray Liota, they are some of the greats! But I could barely watch some of the violence in the movie, I am showing my age!
Back to this great hat, the designer of this wonderful hat is April Draven. She is so very talented and she offers her hat patterns for free! Her designs are simple and cutting edge! I wonder who will steal this hat Rachie or Chelsea?

I have actually found an hour or so to quilt! Just sneaking in a few pictures of some projects I have been working on. The little yellow sweater I did Sunday night real late! I actually do suffer from Insomnia some nights, hence the name Insomiac with a hook. I mostly crochet because I have been doing it so long I am much quicker at it than knitting.
My vacation week was a busy one! Here is some pictures of my little man! He is such a busy little guy. Having my family around is a blessing. I adored all the time I got to spend with him and my Daughter in law, we are lucky we enjoy spending time together. My daughter Chelsea was also home for a few days! Onward 2010!!!
