I've managed to knit the grand total of a row and a half which believe me, felt amazing. I've looked at magazines and have now got a bit better about actually opening them and diving in. First up was Mollie Makes, a little saccharine for my tastes but full of thoughts of learning to sew (one day) and projects I will accomplish for gifts..... NEXT year.
It's the knitting magazines (naturally) that I've really indulged in. I rarely read magazines from cover to cover, preferring to pour over certain articles or patterns and returning to reread them again in the months to come. What I've discovered I have a talent for is reading cover to cover (including adverts!) and returning to pour over pattern details later. This, therefore, prolongs the life of the magazine which is considerably easier to hold with and nurse than a paperback book. Thank God for the Kindle!
Knitscene Winter 2012 excelled itself and my highlights were the short row shaped shawls in triumphant colours from the very talented Kyoko Nakayoshi. Isn't it stunning? I can't wait to think up my own colour combinations and laze my way through comfort knitting and wraps and turns. I love a wrap and turn.

The Farmstead Cardigan is really pretty.
Good to know that your little family is setting in nicely. These are precious days for you.
Congratulations to you and the small Playful one, and of course your DH! I have just watched our latest arrival take her first year's leap into the lives on my Daughter and Son-in-law's lives! SHe is amazing!
THe knitting you have lined up to work on, looks great! I want to make some hats and cowls with chunky yarn I have in my stash, now I just have to find the needles! Keep enjoying that small person! Hope you manage to get plenty of rest (grab it when you can!)
