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.
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!
