Well. Happy 2012! I hope you all had a great holiday season and are going into the year refreshed and rarin’ to go. Me, not so much. I have had some sort of low-grade virus (upper respiratory) since the day after Christmas and it has knocked me for a loop. I usually love the New Year and am ready to sweep holiday decorations away and start with a clean slate. That will have to wait, I think, until next week. For now I am just sleeping and knitting and reading.
I did get some knitting done. My daughter loved her Honey Cowl and it looks good. There will definitly be another one of those in my future. I have started some half-fingered gloves for my son (what would you call them? they aren’t mitts because they have fingers but they aren’t gloves because the fingers only go up to the first knuckle). My daughter wants full gloves so I think I will write these up with 3 options–mitts, half-fingers, and full gloves. I got to The Yarn Spot without any knitting last week and so started a Wingspan with Classic Elite Liberty Wool Light. It has been the perfect sick bed knitting–I am more than halfway through! Pictures to come when I have the strength to lift the camera. (Sigh.)
As for resolutions, I haven’t really made any. I don’t usually, although I read a couple of posts on making mistakes and that is a resolution I can get behind. Check out Adrienne Martini who gave a sermon (yes, a sermon) on mistakes. And another blog I read, Hecate, had this Neil Gaiman quote:
So here’s to 2013 and all the mistakes we’ll make in it!
