Love the baby toes!

I can do both (and sew and quilt and macrame), but I knit pretty much exclusively now because I love the finished product so much...the smoothness of stockinette stitch. The rhythm of knitting also makes me more relaxed than that of crocheting.

I confess I'm a chicken when it comes to buttonholes, although I have made them a few times. When faced with a project such as yours, I often take it to a professional seamstress (although you seem to qualify as one!) to have them done; someone with very good credentials (and lots of experience with buttonholes!). You amaze me with the speed you work at when it comes to sewing!

The top is gorgeous. Great style and choices of fabric. You look great!

Ruth - please take care of yourself. I've been in your shoes (but in a different way) and pushed on (what's the old saying, picked up my bootstraps and carried on). Now, I'm disabled and chronically ill b/c I didn't learn to listen to my body until it was too late. It's amazing how unimportant so many things turn out to be when we let them slide, even though we thought the earth would end if we didn't get them done. So, the advice above is so true - rest, re-create. You don't have to be superwoman for ANY of us! Your family needs you first.
Gorgeous socks. Of course it's twenty-ten. Imagine if we had spent the last century saying, "Nineteen hundred fifty-seven."

What a magical family outing! And the snow pictures are truly beautiful. Good memories for you and your family in the coming years when it becomes so hard to get family together! Happy New Year, Ruth

And that's what it is all about, is it not, Ruth? Living in the now. Because anything else is beyond us and our control. A very happy new year to you and your family!

Leave it to the kids to make reality known. You have company. My yarn now occupies space in the sewing room, bedroom, the great room, and recently moved into the guest bedroom (not that it's a guest. I plan to give it permanent abode! LOL!)

Suggest Cetaphil to your son. They have a special face wash that really clears things up.
