It has been a while since I have updated�??too long really. I guess I got all caught up in holiday festivities and got lazy. In addition, my home computer has a virus and so I can’t use that to update right now. I also feel sometimes like I can’t update without posting pictures. I do have pictures to post but as I am currently using my sister’s digital camera and with my computer out of service it is difficult to get them in a workable format. I promise to post them soon and hope this post is still interesting without pictures.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I celebrate Christmas and had a great time with my family although we were sans Mom and Dad. That was hard but hopefully we will all be together next year. Traditionally, Christmas is a big family event so it is sad when we are not all together.
So I was thinking this weekend, I do love the idea of the “New Year.” I love resolutions, new beginnings, fresh starts, and hope for what is to come. It is a rather exciting time of year. I am looking forward to this year and really think it will be a good one. One thing I am looking forward to for sure is going to the gym tonight. I am sure I will be joined with the hordes of people looking to better their physical selves in 2006 which is always fun. I get to feel smug that I am an all-year-round gym go-er�??with the exception of the last 3 weeks of December. I really need to get to the gym.
In knitting news, I admit to facing some discouragement over the last few weeks. I finished Paula�??except for the tie�??and put her on and she (I don’t know why the sweater is feminine but go with it) just didn’t look right. I think I need to re-seam the collar which I SO don’t want to do. I will post a picture of Paula soon so you can see what I am talking about but annoyance over how it is turning out has lead to the greater realization that I do not love any of my sweater knits. None of them have turned out exactly as I pictured. Knitting sweaters are not cheap and they take serious time. So much is invested into the project that it is devastating when it doesn’t work out. Really frustrating. Maybe I need to stop knitting sweaters altogether. Grrr.
I promise I will write more soon�??especially since I have stuff to share. Here are some previews:
The project I was obsessed with for 3 weeks while creating knit gifts for a group of 6 friends.
Insights from the slightly embarrassing book given to me by a good friend that I started reading out of obligation and am now enjoying.
My current project using new yarn I got in my stocking and a pattern from a new book given to me by my sister for Sister’s Night.
What is Sister’s Night?

okay, you think no one’s reading this don’t you…so, what’s sister’s night?
I love that I know the embarrassing book. Just finished it last night and I’m convinced it’s going to change my life!
Yeah, I want to know the book too!
I know what you mean about the gym! Uggh! And I have to admit I’m totally one of those New Year people, though I remember back when I was a regular and made fun of the New Year crowd!.
