Happy New Year! I hope that you enjoyed New Year's eve and welcomed the new year in good company and enjoyed yourselves. My boyfriend and I had some friends over and played games, watched Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve, and we had champagne at Midnight. I had a great time!
I love the beginning of the year it is a time for a fresh start and time to decide how we would like to spend the next twelve months (even if we don't stick to every resolution). I like to write a list every year of things I would like to accomplish and this year I made one. This year one of my resolutions is to knit a sweater. I started the back piece already to get the project going and I hope to be finished by the end of the year. This year I will also chose a word inspired by Ruth at her blog Raincloud and Sage who chooses a word every year. I loved this idea and I decided to choose a grouping of words after reading the article by Elizabeth Rider on her blog. The words I am choosing for this year are...
"radiant, balanced, and consistent"
I am joining in the Yarn Along with Ginny Sheller this week so I am sharing the book I am reading and what I am currently knitting. You can see other blogger's posts and join in the Yarn Along by clicking here.
This week I am reading the book "Truly Madly Guilty" by Liane Moriarty. I am enjoying it so far and I have heard great things about this book. What interested me to this book was the mystery of what happens at the BBQ that changes the character's lives, and then I like to read how people cope with the aftermath of a big event in a novel. I am looking forward to reading on.
I am currently knitting the back piece for a sweater I started in December using Homespun yarn by Loops & Threads. I will be posting entries throughout the year when I complete each piece of the sweater as part of a series of posts that will be my journey of completing my first sweater. I also enjoyed using the mug I got for Christmas from Yarn Mamas. I love it!
Thank you for stopping by, I hope that the year 2017 is your best year yet!
