Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

Looking Forward


I love anything new!  New yarn.  New adventures.  New restaurants.  A new year.

I’m also not one to analyze.  I’ve read so many great blog posts where people summarize their year.  They’re so eloquent and well thought out.  I will just say that 2010 was a good year at The Crazy home.  God has blessed us.  We have great kids.  (One is in at time out as I write this.)  My Hero is still My Hero.  We’ve been healthy.  What more can I ask for?

We made the trek home from Texas a few days early to beat the lovely Minnesota weather.  We drove the last 100 miles in rain.  Yes, lots of rain.  In Minnesota.  In December.  Then it got really cold and really icy.  Then we added a couple inches of snow, and finally today, a bunch of wind.

We had a wonderful New Years Eve.  I handed out a slip of paper to each family member with meat, potato, beverage, vegetable, salad, and dessert written on them.  Each person got to pick what they wanted for the item they were given.  We had a great dinner.  Then we spent two hours playing Apples to Apples.  Yes!  I played.  If you know me at all, you know I hate playing games.  I’d much rather knit.  But it was a lot of fun!

There has been knitting too.  The Genius made a cowl for Superblonde.  I blocked it today.  It’s one of those really long ones that she can wrap twice around her neck.  The yarn was from The Plucky Knitter but that’s all I remember.  The Genius also just made up her own pattern.

I’m working on Batik.

The yarn is Madelintosh Sock and the colorway is Light of Love.  It’s really bright.  I don’t know how much I’ll wear it, but its really a fun color to knit.

We have one more Christmas party tomorrow.  On Monday the kids go back to school and I go back to the quiet. I want to do a summary of my 2010 projects and I have one more knitting project to show you that I finished last week.   I don’t make New Years resolutions, but I have some closets to clean and some quilting to do!  Oh, the possibilities!

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Jeremiah 29:11.

The best is yet to come!
