Happy New Year!

I'm happy to report that I'm cranking on Rosedale (by my standards, anyway). I'm about 16 inches into the body, sleeves have been added, second intarsia block begun. The end is almost in sight. With the holiday tomorrow, who knows? I'm was a little confused and apprehensive about attaching the sleeves. I hoped that when I got to that point in the pattern it would make sense to me. And it did. Pretty much. Now I'm just decreasing away. I had my husband wind some balls of yarn for me while I was working on the sweater. I pointed out that with my own ball winder and swift he wouldn't need to help me with that. Hint, hint.

I hope everyone had (or is still having) a happy new year. We took the kids to a local brew pub for an early dinner and then spent the evening watching Antiques Roadshow and Monster House. Do we know how to party or what?!
