January is over!

I haven't thought about the month of January much before this year. It is always the let down month after Christmas and before the family birthdays begin in February. But this year I noticed how dark and ugly the weather is most days. But then I notice that the sun was starting to set later and later each day. Woohoo! The month didn't end very well as some in my family had health challenges so I am going to recap the highlights of the month. 

The best way to end the month is hanging out with friends which we did last night. We ate leftover gluten free pizza that our dear friends got us over the weekend when we were at the hospital with family. I love these two individuals they are definitely family in my book.  So we ate reheated pizza, watched a movie, gabbed and tried a gluten free microwave brownie.  H and I had to put peanut butter on it to really enjoy it. P loved it cause it was chocolate and J had an orange with it. But over all it was a great way to spend a relaxing evening. 

I did complete some knitting projects this month.  One pair of socks that still need to be blocked and then mailed off.  One baby wallaby that needs a traveling companion and then also needs to be mailed off. I have an update off everything on my needles.  I went most the month without socks on my needles but Sunday I cast on a pair as they are the best thing to knit in hospitals, cars..etc.  They will be perfect for the month of February as they are Valentine colored. They are my default sock pattern and should show the color well.

Late on Sunday night while just relaxing from the crazy weekend, I joined the pocket on the newest wallaby and now need to work on the sleeves.

When I had time this weekend I did work on the baby afghan that is so soft and fuzzy.  I really like how soft it is.

I haven't had much opportunity to knit on dishcloths for the kitchen as I left the project bag at the office but here is the progress so far.

I am hoping for sometime to knit this week. Mom's birthday is Thursday and brother R is making dinner.  R is home for a few weeks, it has been really nice to have him.
