Knitting and knitting and knitting . . .

I've been knitting :) I finished a hat for a friends new baby boy over the holidays and I'm very close to finishing the first sweater I'm knitting for myself. I've also got another sweater I'm working on for a friend who is due this spring. Lots of fun stuff! Here are pics of the hat and the back piece for my sweater. I am calling my sweater the Amazing Technicolor sweater :) It's going to be a rainbow of awesomeness!

Best Christmas present EVER!

About a week or two before Christmas, my husband asked me "If you could have anything for Christmas, what would it be?" After thinking for a minute I said "A letterpress printer would be really cool." He had already bought the press. Here it is:

Kelsey Excelsior 3" x 5" Model M press

It came with a couple of type sets and a handful of super cool icons (dragonfly, bird, a couple flowers and religious symbols). I had to order new rollers and so am waiting for those to come back before I can actually print on it. I've already set my first "plate." Excuse my mistakes, I'm still learning the lingo. I can't wait to post my first creation. It will be a month or so for the rollers, so stay tuned!
