I am waiting to hear from Jen to gather her mailing address. My email is on the sidebar. Thank you to everyone who entered! I'll have another giveaway very soon.
Winter break is over as the kids are back in school. It was all fast and furious. I feel like we used every moment of the last couple of weeks to the fullest. Loads of family, friends, eating, laughing and giving was had by all. I wouldn't wish it any other way.

One afternoon we headed out to a local outdoor skating rink complete with a warming house and bridges to skate under. The maintained rink is sort of a bay area connected to a small lake. The setting is very storybook-like. I used to skate here as a child so it brings back lots of memories. We had so much fun that afternoon. I wish I could skate on this natural rink everyday!
My sister knit this Go Team! hat for her son. It matches his winter jacket perfectly. She lined the inside of the hat with fleece. It fits great and he absolutely loves it.Now we are just hoping he can hang onto it. This one tends to misplace or forget his things on occasion (all over the city:).
Have a good, good Monday, Knitters.
best, susie
