My Week In Instagrams: December 28, 2012

Happy Friday! This week is almost through, and I for one, couldn't be happier. I have my final day of Christmas festivities with my mom's extended family. Hopefully that goes well. I can't wait to give the gifts to my recipients. I really think they'll love them.
This is some of what happened in my life this week. These photos aren't in any particular order. I really have to start putting them chronologically. I'll talk about them clockwise, starting from the top left corner.
I've been watching loads of Round the Twist podcast episodes. Carin knits lots of lovely stuff, and is really fun to watch.
This is one of the sweaters I received for Christmas. My mom got it for me when we were out shopping together a few weeks ago. I had completely forgotten about it.
My new knitting needles! My parents got me a set of KnitPicks Sunstruck needles, and I am in love! I have the Harmony wood, and now I have these, I couldn't be happier. Yes, they're fundamentally the same needles, but having the two colour options is a huge bonus.
My brother and his girlfriend bought me this fantastic light up flamingo. you might remember it from a couple weeks back. I think I jumped up and down when I saw him. He still needs a name, any suggestions?
My parents decided to change things up for Christmas this year, and do dinner at their place on the 25th. We're going to do it this way from now on. I am excited. The food was really good, and it was nice just being with my immediate family.
When Rick and I got groceries a few days before Christmas, I picked up some Pom Tea. I really like this stuff. I used to drink it a lot in high school, and got out of the habit. It's tasty, and good for you, two awesome things.
Work was nuts this week, and will continue for a little while longer. When I get home from work, I usually put my moccasins on, and put my feet up.
Last but not least, My parents got me some gorgeous yarn from KnitPicks when they got me my needles. This is all stuff for my Beekeepers Quilt, which I will probably start January 1st.

How were your holidays?


  1. I want to start the quilt too. Can you repost the directions?

    1. Hi Missy! Here is the pattern I will be using

  2. I'm also doing the beekeeper quilt! We should all share our progress on it on your blog (if you want). Set some goals...

    1. I just might have to organize that! I have a couple other things with some loose planning, so we'll have to see how all of it goes. I'll keep this in mind!
