Back in the New Year's Groove

As much as I did NOT want to get out of bed this morning, I'm kind of glad that I did. I've had a productive day and really feel like I've accomplished something. Is this the beginning of a trend? A more productive and organized me in 2008? Doubtful, but I feel good today and that's all that matters.

And speaking of productive, after pretty much wasting the whole day on the Internet yesterday, I sat down at 6:30pm and cast on for a pair of fingerless mitts for the third time. I couldn't get a good gauge no matter how many needle sizes I went up, so I just added more stitches in multiples of six and by 11:00pm I was past the cuff and the set up round and into my first lace repeat. Woo Hoo! Again, I'm hoping this carries through all year. Mom always said that whatever you do on January 1st, you'll do for the rest of the year. So, I'm going to spend too much time on the Internet, neglect the laundry pile, and knit like a fiend. Yeah!

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!

I thought I'd drop in to check on you. Isn't the momentum of the new year so wonderful? I just love it.

Let's both keep it up!

Smooches,
