Hi friends! I put away the manger and took down the trees and all the Christmas decor today. My house looks empty now, how about yours? I made a couple of New Years resolutions that I am planning on keeping. I am planning on posting on my blog more often. I tried that in November but fizzled out about half way through the month. Weight loss is on my mind lately. I am going to try and lose 20 pounds by the first of April. And I am not going to wait until October to begin making this years Christmas gifts. All of my friends that I hang out with knit. So this year I made needle rolls for Christmas gifts. We did not get together until after Christmas which gave me just enough time to finish their gifts up.
Also, I finished a shawl for my best friend of thirty years for her birthday. I used Homespun in Pesto and it is the first large knitted project I have done since learning to knit this last year. I just tried to start crocheting another shawl with this same yarn but found that it does not work as well in crochet so I am going to knit another for a family member I must leave unnamed at this time.
