Looking Back. Looking Forward. Oh, and 27 forever.

Whew! Christmas is over, and the year is coming to an end. It seems like this year has passed in the blink of an eye. I've moved, changed jobs, started a blog, and fallen in love (more on that later perhaps). I turned 27 in November, and while it is not one of those big milestone is significant because from now on every birthday is going to be 27 (with experience of course)...for example...30 will be 27 with 3 years experience...35 will be 27 with 8 years experience, etc. I have always been ok with turning a new year older and I have full intentions of keeping it that way :D .

As for the new year, I of course have some resolutions. I have been sitting on the whole idea of blossoming my etsy store...I've put on an item here and there, but haven't been completely serious. I am considering this post to be my public announcement of seriousness about selling some of the things I design. Which means more time spent designing, which I love. You heard it here first!

I also have plans for this blog. I would like to post at least twice a week in 2008 (with a little break in Feb., more on that later perhaps). I have really missed working on creative pursuits recently and I think it is high time I buckle down and begin pursuing.

On an FO note - My So-Called Scarf was finished so long ago that is almost so-called Worn-Out! (Hehe not really, but I had someone take a picture of me wearing it almost a month ago and it has been so crazy around here I still haven't posted it.) Yes, I am posting a picture of myself!!! Yikes! :D . Note how long ago it winter jacket!!!, just a fleece!

On the needles: A tank top in bamboo, and mittens, lots of mittens...yes, that's right, I have not finished Christmas knitting! Hmmm, next year, I think I will give everyone needles, yarn and a few hours of my time.

Happy New Year everyone! Stay safe, and I hope all of your resolutions come true - especially the fibery ones :D .

PS - NH knitting mama - I have promised myself that I would budget enough to get one of your lovely skeins from etsy in January - I have been eyeing them and I can't wait to order one!

Hi, Jenn!

I am so excited to hear how you like my yarns after you get to touch them! I have sensitive skin, so I tend to lean towards stuff that is VERY SOFT.

I have at least 10 new skeins going up over the next few days, so you'll have some good pickings!

I'm anxious to see your etsy shop. We'll have to keep each other encouraged to keep plugging along.
