Color My World and 2012 Recap

Our little Ice Globes are lasting nicely in the 
icy cold Chicago weather.   I think they are
cheery.  

Here are my colors for the Log Cabin Blanket.

Oh you cannot see the forest green in there too.   Picture that okay?

What a great list! 2012 was a good year for you, eh? Love the colors for the Log Cabin. Can't wait to see how the colors go together.

You are amazing and uplifting and funny, and, oh, what did I do to find you and have you in my life?

Love those ice globes! The only ice we've seen here is on rinks that spend millions to keep it frozen. Great list. I have to agree with going veggie, I went from veggie to vegan this year and what a difference giving up dairy made. I fell of the wagon over the holidays but as soon as the last cookie is gone (!) I going back-at least until next Christmas.

Allison said...

LOVE the colors!

Katherine said...

So many wonderful bests. My favorite is the basil. I am now growing herbs (basil among them) in our breakfast nook window. They grow so fast that I have to clip them every two or three days.

And Al falling in love--how wonderful is that? Best wishes to Al and Nathan. May love grow strong for them!!

Your ice globes are so cute!!

Alyssa said...

I like your recap! I wish I could layer my hair. It's so thin, there's just not enough there even when I try to tease it. SIGH!

Nancy said...

I agree that the ice globes are wonderful - such an unexpected touch of color.

Isn't it fun to revisit the projects and events of the year. Your list is wonderful.

What fun, Kathy...I just got caught up with your holiday posts and enjoyed each! My youngest daughter has been off night shift for two months now, and is very glad although she misses the wonderful night crew staff she worked with. You have accomplished a lot of knitting this past year! Bravo! You encourage me to complete more projects in 2013 :) Happy New Year!

Oh, man, your recap made me laugh. Very funny post.

The ice globes are such a nice splash of color!

Can't wait to see how the log cabin blanket progresses. The yarn colors look fantastic.

Nice recap. I don't know the movie but the rest of it, I totally know. g

ps - I love how the ice globes turned out. Love them. Wish it was cold enough to do here.

I just adore those little ice globes. They make me smile.

Sarah said...

I saw those globes on pinterest and it ALMOST made me want to live somewhere cold enough to make them!

Love to see them in action.
