New Years Knit-olutions

Can you believe it's almost 2006? Here is a recap of 2005, thanks to my blogging buddy Dr. Charles and Yahoo News.

What are your resolutions for 2006?

Mine are simple:
1. Get back on track (pun intended) with diet and exercise
2. Make a valiant effort to get into the office on time. Really, I mean it.
3. Try harder to see and stay in touch with friends who live far away.
4. Knit smaller, simpler things, ie socks.

Exhibit A:

I am doing it! FINALLY. Getting over the fear of socks. And small needles. I received size 0 and 1 DPNs from my in-laws for Christmas, and I'm gonna use them! I'm starting a pair of Jaywalkers (so I can be as cool as everyone else who has completed them!) with my Vesper in the Knit and Tonic Colorway. AND using my new ball winder and swift - Christmas presents from my hubby!

I've also decided to get back in knitting sweaters - the Phildar sweaters are on the back seat to Angelica. A while back Yahaira twisted my arm to join, so here I am! I bought Plymouth Suri Merino (an alpaca merino blend) for this, but my gauge isn't quite on yet...

Ah, it's good to be knitting for myself again!. I know that sounds selfish, but after 9 holiday gifts - 2 of which are still not complete - I need to keep myself sane by looking forward to wearing something I knit. Anyone else feel that way?

Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR! More blogging in 2006!


  1. i am also looking forward to knitting for myself. i have a lot of things in the queue that are just meant for me!

    socks are great! they are so addictive. once you get over the second sock hurdle, you'll be hooked for life :)

  2. Go girl! Your sock is off to a great start and the yarn color is gorgeous!!

  3. I, too, am going to knit more for myself this year - nothing selfish about it!
