Well, it would appear that the Blocking Goddess did smile on me this time. I can't tell you how much I was sweating this one!! On the needles it looked VERY narrow, but after a nice warm bath and a date with a fluffy towel it blocked out to just the right size. Whew!!!
I've been thinking alot about what my knitting goals are this year. I have read the aspirations from a few friends and decided to take a stab at putting my goals in print.
Even though I know I can do more, why put pressure on myself? If I get this accomplished than I can do more...right??
* 9 pairs of socks (this is a challenge for me, because I get so blessed bored with the second sock)
* 2 vests as I love wearing them
* Hypotenuse (GREAT design Anne!)
* and finish all of the items I have on my needles currently.
It is a modest list, I know, but it's a start :-)
Another thing I wasn't going to put here even though I have joined, as these kinds of physical challenges are always scary for me (brings me right back to gym class), is the 100 mile walk a along. Being a computer chair potato the 100 mile walk by April 1st that Rachel and Scout are hosting will be a challenge for me, but I am commited to giving it my best try. 2007 is the year that I have committed to taking care of my health as I am knocking on 50's door and I want to be 50 and healthy. This is one more way to help me stay on track :-)
Now mind you.......I am so NOT a "Let's go for a walk", when it is freezin' out, so I'm considering doing my walking at our local gym.....I may stay more motivated.
Walk With Me Thursday?
The cold has definitely put a damper on my Wednesday Walks too, as you may have noticed, but this week, we have a guest Wednesday Walker trying out her new camera. Ashley, my middle daughter is home on her college break. She and her boyfirend took her new camera on a hike in the woods. (yep....that's the handspun hat I made for her last winter :-)
Brrr..............see how bundled up they are....bbrrrrrrrr. (Scarey thing is, it really has been a mild winter......yep, I'm a pansy when it's cold).
Their hike took them to the falls of Jackson, NH and then to Diana's Bath, the place where I started out on a walk this past fall, until I heard the shots from a hunter's gun.
