Year of the Cat

Hope you all had a wonderful New Year's Eve.

Sadly, Dave and I are both a little under the weather (he's still fighting a cold, and my back has decided it hates me again - and the case of the sneezes I got yesterday certainly didn't help us make up and play nice) so we were in bed before the New Year rolled around.

I did wake up at midnight when everyone around us was lighting fireworks and running down the street yelling, but I rolled over, snuggled up to Dave and went back to sleep.

I do have some resolutions and goals for 2011 but I will write about those later.

Today, I want to tell you all about our new Wandering Cat projectThat's right - we're holding a Knitalong on Ravelry. With lots of fun and prizes. You can find all the details here.

Don't have any Wandering Cat Yarn? No worries - have a little visit to the shop. There will be new yarns added sometime tomorrow!

As for me - I've got a skein of Jungle Cat just begging to be socks.... so I'm off to it!

hope you two are on the mend; no fun with back issues or a cold. I love the idea of The Year of the Cat

Happy New Year! I'll have to check the KAL out -- I've got three skeins of Cat waiting to become something.

We went to bed around 1:30, but the people in the rooms next to us kept slamming their hotel room doors. I think they were going back and forth to each other's rooms and just kept letting the doors slam shut on their own. I'd just start to drift off, and they'd start slamming doors again. Also the police station was right next door, and sirens went all night. I don't sleep well anyways, and it's even worse in hotels. Then Hubs got snoring, lol. I could go to bed right now, but I've got too much to do. The concert we went to was awesome, though, so it was all worth it in the end!!

Sorry to hear you're under the weather!

I'll be knitting along for "The Year of the Cat", but I'm taking it easy on myself for January and February at least, so I'm not setting any goals.

We'll just see how it goes!

I understand a hateful back. Hope you both are feeling better.

Ah, hope you both feel right as rain (whatever that means) very soon! Love the knitalong idea!
