Finish What You Start

I looked over my projects that I finished in 2014.  I thought I had done so much knitting and I still believe that to be true but I obviously didn't actually finish enough projects.  There are such a measly few and small ones too!  I'm going to be more determined to finish projects in the next year!  And one of them WILL be a sweater!  To go along with the Knitmore Girls Idea of a theme instead of a resolution, mine with be Finish What You Start.

Projects of 2014

That's not all.  There will also be a fiber diet in 2015.  No purchasing any yarn in 2015.  NONE.  Of course there has to be an exception right?  Every diet has to have a cheat right?  My only exception is "if" I run out of sweater quantities of yarn.  Considering I have enough for about 5 sweaters or garments of the sort I don't think it will be an issue but a girl can dream of a year of sweaters right?  Oh wait, that was supposed to be 2014!!!  

My 5 resolutions from last year:
1. I've already started!  Bought the Crochet Lab Craftsy class in their Black Friday sale.  Started learninv to crochet today!
2.  Knit at least 3 pairs of socks this year for myself (really because I need more wool socks)
3. Read just as much as I did last year, if not more.  13 books in 2013.  Maybe I will strive for 14 in 2014.
4. Run a 5k.
5. Last be certainly not least, finish an adult size sweater.  Whether it is one that is started or a new one I don't care.  I just need to finish!!

 Completely the first right away.  Never finished the rest.  I'll stick to a theme this year thank you very much....


Boy oh Boy

Where has the time gone!  I literally haven't posted anything since I've moved into this house.  That has been a whole four months!  1/3 of the year has gone by without posting (and I've already been in this house for a whole 1/3 of a year?! No way!)

Oddly enough my life has been happier here, but also much more stressful.  More to do.  More time with my little one and me, which means challenges in itself.  We've already had more people come visit than the whole time we lived in Kansas.  Crazy huh?  Like they say "location, location".  We've also gone to visit family 3 times and will be doing that again in a few days.   And I've started a new endeavor - Jamberry Nail Wrap Consultant.  If that interests you at all e-mail me!  

But I think I can say with confidence I'm back.  And the knitting has not lagged, even if I've totally slacked on posting about it.  I have a few new yarns I've worked with, I went to Rhinebeck (oh yeah I Did!) and I'm starting a year without yarn purchases!!  I've almost finished my husbands never-ending sweater which may very well be the death of me.

Oh yeah, last week I turned 30!!  And my birthday sucked.  Big time.  Just putting that out there.  It had nothing to do with the age either.  And my daughter turns THREE in a little over two weeks.  That's the one I can't believe the most.  Three years old.  And acts like a 5 year old.  Seriously though- her mannerisms, her vocal, her ability to recognize letters already, her height and her attitude.  I swear.  My current 2 yr old has acted older for the whole year.  People seriously never believe she's 2.  She's already wiping our kisses off.  I thought I had at least 7 more years before that happened!  Where has my baby girl went?

Well glad to check in.  I am in fact still alive and kicking.  Just busy as can be it seems.  But I haven't disappeared and I sure hope some of my readers have stuck around.  Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!
