Sure my house is a mess. There are still boxes to be taken out to recycle, the now dead Christmas tree is about ready to go up in flames at any second, and there are piles of laundry to be done.
But hey, I need a day to recover from all of the fun we have been having lately. So I took some time to cast on a new knitting project - something toasty and warm for the winter months. I think it is important to start off the new year knowing I had some time to relax and get my bearings. Not to mention having a little (and much treasured) time to myself.
