2007! Woo!

Hurray for 2007! I'll spare you the details, but 2006 was such a b*tch of year for me personally I am not sad to see it go!

I feel like I've been so productive already:

- I sent off my first sweater and pattern for the maternity knits book.

- I cleaned out the 1800 or so posts from bloglines to start fresh for the new year.

- I got together my application to join the Association of Knitwear Designers.

- I'll be finishing my 2nd maternity sweater tonight to send out tomorrow.


I also started another secret project for One Planet. This time I am working with their worsted weight Lanas Puras.

Let me just say that I love, love, love this yarn! It's probably the softest merino I have ever worked with.

I've been thinking about my resolutions for 2007, but I really think that it all comes down to one thing - organizing my time wisely. I did more than I ever thought possible with knitting last year and hope to do even more in 2007. It's all about using time productively and keeping off the darn time sucking internet (or at least that's a start)!

I tried to ask for "the gift of time" on my Christmas list, but it didn't happen!

I bought some yarn for Eunny's Endpaper Mitts yesterday. I hope to be able to fit in a row here and there while working on the "deadline" projects. I just like them so much and need them now!!!

Well, congrats on all of the accomplishments already done in 2007! I'm so impressed! I just got back from vacation in Italy and am trying to get back into the rhythm of things. Now that I've turned in the Knitter's and Magknits things and am working on the book thing, I'm trying to see if I can line up some more projects :) You know what they say about idle hands!

I'm sorry 2006 was hard personally for you. It's difficult to have long distance relationships. How are your grandfolks? I hope they're recovering.

I'm impressed with all that you got done, too. The bloglines cleaning alone is amazing, nevermind all of the designing. No wonder I haven't seen you...

Dang, you did accomplish a lot this year! Congrats on meeting your resolution. Is it bad that I want to eat that Lanas yarn?

You've achieved a lot, esp. cleaning out the bloglines - yikes!

That merino looks scrumptious.

Amy said...

You have accomplished a lot already. I hope 2007 is really good to you!

Wow, you've accomplished a lot - and 2007 has just begun! Good for you!
The Endpaper Mitts will fly - they're a nice and easy quick little project. You'll enjoy 'em, I think.
Hope to see you soon.
