Happy New Year

New Years Eve was fun for all. Panda got a romp through the very muddy dog park in Redondo Beach.

I think she wears mud well. This was, of course, followed by a bath which Panda tolerates well but, oddly, finds it far more distasteful than running through the icy Pacific or through the stinky, slimy puddles mentioned above. Go figure.

Leo and I had a bit of fun as well. We ended up in an Irish pub in Venice where we enjoyed some pints of Guinness and the obligatory glass of champagne (well, it's likely sparkling wine, but it was free, so we didn't care) for the countdown and kiss at midnight.

That bar felt like those we loved back in Boston, which gave the evening a really warm, homey feeling.

We ended the evening with a trip to the 24-hour deli near home where we got far more food than we actually had room for. After completely filling up on our appetizer, we requested the rest of our food to go. Our over-worked waitress accidentally spilled Leo's soda and my water so we got two giant cookies free. Yay!

I am finally at the armscye of the Soy Silk piece. The body was endless stockinette in the round with some of hardest yarn I've knit, but it's been worth it. Seen flat, you can't really appreciate the texture of the final fabric. The look is so light and airy. I really think it'll be striking worn over a simple black dress.
