a new post for a new year

It’s a new year and with a new year always comes new goals and a list of things I want to do and accomplish this year. This year I broke down my 2009 goals into six distinctive catergories - Life/ Spirituality, Creativity, Home/ Organization, Books to Read, Health & Random.

Like my friend, Kate, I do not use the word resolutions for a couple of reasons. Like she wrote on her blog, the term resolution goes hand-in-hand with the word failure – and although many of the goals on my list are things that I resolve to accomplish this year, there are many that are either ongoing from last year or I know are sure to carry over to next year. Whatever you call them…they are there, written down, ink on paper and I have already checked one thing off my list.

January began at the end of the week and I took it as an opportunity to start a new project, just in time for a long weekend.

I thought knitting my first hat would be daunting. Patterns, circular needles, markers, safety pins and four double-pointed needles. In minutes I was hooked and pretty much finished the hat in 24 hours.

It’s a sweet, thunderstorm grey, merino wool blend that’s soft and stretchy. Unlike other projects that I’ve done, I finished with a sigh, not wanting it to end – but pleased with the outcome. I then wore it for the rest of the night.

Since then, I have started hat #2 – a soft cream-colored wool, which I’m antsy to pick up tonight while the hub no doubt rocks out to more guitar hero.

Next on the list is a pair of socks. I have the yarn, the pattern, the needles and the phone number of my favorite knitting teacher – my mom - who I’ll no doubt be on the phone with often, asking for explanations, pattern clarification and stitch tutorials.

The creative juices are flowing and I have a feeling it’s going to be a good year.

Happy New Year!
