Goodbye 2006, and hello 2007!

The Wool Peddler Shawl from Cheryl Oberle's book "Folk Shawls" will bring me from the year 2006 into the next year. Right now though, and for I don't know how long, there will be not much knitting going on in this house. I, once again, realized how important family and good health is. I wish you all a very happy, healthy and successful year 2007!

Sam says, "Hi! And take it easy!"

He had his first walk today, still limping and taking pain killers, but he's doing much, much better. Thanks for all your well wishes concerning his health.

Take care, until next year!

Cheers and all the best to you and yours Monika. (And my dog used to hit those incredible positions occasionally too. So odd)

Hey, das ist eine schöne Farbe für den Wollpeddler. Schön, das es Sam schon viel besser geht.
Ich wünsche Dir und Deinen Lieben allen einen guten Rutsch ins Neue Jahr, alles erdenklich Gute, viel Gesundheit und das sich alles was Dir Sorgen macht zum positiven wendet.

Happy New Year

You're absolutely right - there *are* more important things than knitting!
I wish you and your family - and of course Sam! - a very happy, healthy and peaceful New Year - it was so nice "meeting" you in 2006 and reading your fantastic blog entries - I'm looking forward to many, many more!
Have a great one, my friend - und liebe Grüße aus der alten Heimat!

How cute of Sam!!!! He looks like he is making progress, the sweet dear. Wolfie lies in that position all the time. It means he wants his belly rubbed, which we all obliging do with great regularity. I love your Wool Peddler. What yarn are you using? That's in muy queue. Happy New Year to you and your family, Monika. What a pleasure it has been to get to know you.

Sam looks so comfy twisted like a pretzle. Love that shawl. I have the book & everytime I see that shawl on the web ,I fall in love with it all over again. All the best for 2007!

112 inches? Good grief. Vertigo is very cool though! Mosaic knitting is fascinating. Easy and yet not. There is no way I'm knitting something that brought you to the edge of sanity though.

Pretty color for Wool Peddlar scarf!

Happy New Year to you and yours. Nice to see Sam relaxed, but the pain pills probably help. Pets to Biko too!

Liebe Grüßle,

I love that shawl - I made it several years ago for my (then) daughter-in-law in deep red, and she wore it frequently. I'm so happy Sam is on the mend. He's been through so much, I'm sending good vibrations to your house for good health and happiness in 2007.
