Happy New Year!
I know, it is January 5th already, and I’ve neglected to post since November. I could say that I’ve been real busy, but haven’t we all? No excuse, but I seem to have that one all the time. So….
My new year’s resolutions for 2011 are:
Post to blog once a week. Maybe I need a specific day? Mmm, I’ll pick Friday. ‘K.
Write 6 new patterns. (I’ve got a couple in my head and notebooks. Time to get them out there!)
Promote my web biz. What web biz you ask? The one that’s been in my head and all the books I keep buying.
Knit every day. Uh, is that a goal? I sort of do that now.
Invest 15% for retirement – CONSISTENTLY!!!
Give beyond the regular church tithe, to outside charities – REGULARLY!!! I mean monthly. (You have to be specific with these goal things. Otherwise they flit around with a mind of their own.)
Study Web design DAILY.
Bible study daily.
Study guitar DAILY.
Save for a home on the Central Coast.
Travel to exotic places once a year.
Go to NM & CO to see where my Great-Great Grandparents lived.
Follow FlyLady’s recommendations DAILY!!!
I know there’s more, but that’s all I can think of right now. There I’ve written them down!
KNITTING PROGRESS –
I finished the Simple Triangle Shawl for Unwind’s Ravelry event. It’s this Thursday. I can’t wait! I was telling DH about it last night and he wishes he could be here to go to the party! I don’t know if he would really have fun, but it was so cool that he is excited for me to be succeeding.
I should expound on how much I love the Silky Alpaca Lace from Classic Elite. I do, I really do. It is very easy to work with and never splits. I got this whole shawl from 1 ball! Can you belive it? This stuff just goes on forever! There are 440 yards per 50 gr ball. 70% alpaca, 30% silk. Mmmmmm.
I also made a scarf from the brown colorway and some fingerless gloves for a Christmas gift. I’ll post those pictures another time. (I think I have enough left to make myself a pair of fingerless gloves.)
I’m now working on Alpaca Baby Shawl in True Love Fiber Merino Superwash. Here’s True Love’s Etsy Store – Yummmm! I love how squishy this yarn is. I’m working with Sorbet which is a yellow and peachy/pink variegated and peach. It is coming out quite nicely if I say so myself. Pics to follow.
Since I will be posting Friday, I’ll tell you all about the Ravelry Party @ Unwind!
Till next time,
