at peace with your neighbors,
and let each new year find you a better man.
I was trying to think about how to sum up my plans for 2008, when Jen did it for me. Less whimsy, more things people want. That pretty much sums it up for me.
You may also recall that I had plans for a Clean Slate for 2008. I'm pleased to say that I did it . . . by mid-December. I finished the Christmas knits, my Denim Aran, and searched around for a new project. I found it in the Four Seasons Throw made of Manos del Uraguay. I saw Disentangled's in person, and was completely won over. A long road trip, and having my husband around to drive, and before you know it I'm done 6/12 squares. Then I did wait until it was nearly January to start my 2008: A Year of Yarn. As I said earlier, not all the yarns are particularly hard to find or unique, although some are, but all are somehow special to me. For January, I'm knitting up Mountain Colors Bearfoot, in Glacier, in Nancy Bush's Rib and Cable pattern. My first time knitting with Bearfoot, and I'm loving it.
And, perhaps most significantly, my January Project: Salt Lake City from Dale of Norway. For that husband who drives me around so I can knit. Let a year of yarn and sweaters begin!
