What else can you call a Jan 1 post? This is the year of many things;
- the year of the second sock
- the year of taking responsibility for my health and well-being
- the year of saving, saving, saving!
- the year of finishing what I start
The only difference between try and triumph is a little bit of umph! Right now I have umph to spare, lol. I joined Weight Watchers in early December and am now less 5.5kgs of unwanted blubber (thats 12lbs for my American friends) with a firm focus on the future. Some might even accuse me of being a little militant at the moment, but I have to make the most of it while I'm trying to move permanently into a new head space, lol.
On the knitting front I am kicking off two new projects, both for KALs. First up is a pair of Leyburn socks in Socks That Rock lightweight for the Ravelry STR group Leyburn KAL. This KAL is unique in that no colourway will be repeated so at the end we get to see how approximately 65 pairs of Leyburns look in different colourways of STR. My colourway is Pebble Beach (as selected by the little guy).
Second, I am about to cast on for the Ravely Loopie Groupies group January KAL, which involves knitting my very first Clapotis out of fabulous Numma numma Saucy in the Bare Gossip colourway;
And last but not least, i will be attempting to chronicle my year better by blogging more regularly. To that end, here's a pic of my favourite little guy enjoying the sunshine and refusing to pose 'normally' for his mama!
