Happy New Year!

2010 was one of those years that I am glad to see come to an end. Not that there's, of course, any guarantee whatsoever that nothing bad will ever happen again just because it all seemed to happen in one year. But our family and our circle of friends had its share of  accidents, surgeries, and tragic events that left me breathless at times, not knowing where and whom to help first.

Naturally, what I came to realize over and over again, is that we are not alone, not when bad things happen, and not when we are helping someone.  The Pulling Together and Sharing in the Grief was a tremendous experience, and I want to thank you all for being there, and allowing me be to be there for you. It's always such an honor to be permitted to make a difference.

My gratefulness goes out to those of you who are still with me here on this little blog, for hanging in there with me when the words just wouldn't come. I am looking forward to writing and creating more again in the coming year! More yarn will be dyed, the colors are calling already.

I hope you all have a great ending to 2010, and will begin 2011 with renewed energy and outstretched arms, ready to receive whatever may come.


  1. Despite all the difficulties, you always found time to share your knitting news, travels, new yarns, and creative enthusiasm with us. Thank you for a great blog, and best wishes for a very happy 2011!

  2. Karin, I'm hoping for a great 2011 and I wish the same for you and yours. I truly appreciate all that you have done and continue to do. You brought me back to knitting and that has created friendships and bonds for me that I never would have had - and what would I be doing with all of this "free" retirement time? Not to mention one more thing to share with my wonderful daughter, and all the support from the knitting community! Thanks so much!

  3. Thank you Karin for always leaving us feeling uplifted by your words. And thank you for being there when the Mason and Collins family needed you. You are a blessing to us all.

  4. Have a wonderful brand new year! Wishing you and yours all the best.
