Happy New Year

Happy New Year.
2013! It's here.

We rang in the new year London style meaning we celebrated at 7:00PM with the kids and friends...confetti was thrown.

I started writing this blog on January 1, 2007. I am still here and still very much enjoying it. I went back this morning to look at what I wrote last year. My resolution was to try a new craft and take a class. Well, congratulations to me I did that. I did my first experiment with dyeing using indigo in the Spring and I enrolled in upholstery class and completed two semesters. How fun it is to attack a piece of furniture. I am almost done with my chair and will finish that this week. My first finished piece was a footstool.

This year I don't know if I have any resolutions. I have been enjoying Yoga a lot lately and want to continue with that. I want to grow a better garden and learn to slow down a little. I was thinking about how much i enjoy tea but, how rare it is that I sit down with a cup and just relax so I am going to make that a resolution. Hey, if I got to go on a really amazing vacation that would be awesome too.

So, in the effort to do a little more tea drinking why not knit a tea cozy. I used leftover yarn from this hat I knit for M years ago. The pattern is called Tea Mitten by Elizabeth Kleven though I changed it up a bit by omitting several rows. I could have gotten rid of a few more. Or, maybe I need to get a bigger teapot so it fits better!

The teapot here is one I bought a few years ago on sale at Anthropologie.
