Hello, again, all of you lovely people! I’m writing this post quickly before I finish packing for my family trip to Belize.

The end of 2016 was a very hectic period for me, and it consisted of  Christmas parties, Christmas itself, and birthdays galore. The New Year has been just the same with a New Year’s Eve party (I sound like I’m a party animal, don’t I? Well, I can assure you that I’m definitely not; I love sleep too much), my parent’s wedding anniversary, and, yesterday, my 18th birthday.

I haven’t been working on that many projects since my classes ended because I was feeling rather burnt-out, and my hands were aching from the constant repetitive motions. Still, despite being weary of creating things, I managed to knit my friend a Christmas hat- of which I don’t have a picture, oddly enough.

On my birthday, I started making a bright pink doily for the same friend’s birthday  present. It’s from a free vintage pattern, and I’m excited to see how it turns out.

Sometime before Christmas, I started a Ginny Cardigan for myself, on which I have knitted about 3 1/2 inches. I really like the yarn that I chose for it, a Knit Picks’ Tweed DK. It’s soft, and I think that it’ll be comfortable to wear.


Now that I’m nearly packed and ready for the trip tomorrow, I just hope that my hook and needles won’t be confiscated as I board the boat to Central America. XD

Seriously, though.
