Or Happy Chinese New Year. It's the start of a new year and a big welcome to the Year of the Pig. I'm born in the year of the pig and I'll be having a little piglet baby later in the year.
I was trying to get both kids to be in the picture below, but Keira has a huge fear of the lion. When I say huge, I mean HUGE! She woke a few nights, crying and saying - " I don't like the lion dance and the lion head. Take it away." Oh well, Aidan on the other hand, loves it. He wants to start wushu training when he's 5. He has the DVD of the Annual Malaysian Lion dance competition, which he has been watching avidly.
I've also joined the sock a monthalong here.
What's even better, I've finished my February socks. It's based on the Matahari sock pattern. I've knitted it in Sweet Georgia Speed Demon in Fondant. I used short row heels and toes and 3.5mm needles. They are super comfy and very cheery to wear, especially on dark February nights.
