Self portrait Monday: January 3, 2011

Happy New Year everyone! I know I've posted once already this year, but that was a quick update to try and get my brain juices flowing. This is a real update.
I just came in from taking the dog out, and it's a million degrees in the apartment, hence the messy pony tail. We rearranged the living room a few days ago, so I have a large open space behind me where we have a couple bookshelves with random stuff on them.
New Year's Eve and New Year's day were both spent with Rick's family. His mom makes a ton of food, and we eat like kings and queens.
I'm working on a new item that I am hoping to be able to replicate fairly quickly in order to sell them in a few places. Really hoping this works out as I plan. I started it yesterday in two colours of Homespun (some of the stuff from the ridiculous Boxing Day sale at Michael's) and I'm really liking how it is working out.
I've started a Super List, which is basically a few resolutions I have for this year. They are important things to me that are in line with where I want to be in one year. Feel free to check it out.
Part of this list is to photograph all of the things I knit this year. I am really bad at doing this, and I want to be able to see the progression of my knitted items over time. The only thing I've finished thus far is the last dishcloth of that custom order. I used a different colour that the rest of them because I ran out of that. The woman who ordered them is super excited to get them. I'll hopefully be bringing them to her this week.
Tomorrow is my twenty second birthday. I'm celebrating tonight with Rick and our families. I'm also doing some sort of lunch thing at Rino's Kitchen on Wednesday. I've invited everyone I know on Facebook, and I'm really hoping a few people come out. I know that a few people are going to be coming on the weekend while I am working because they work Monday-Friday, so that will be great, as well.
I hope everything is going well for all of you. Do any of you have any resolutions you're working on?

  1. I keep track of ALL my knitting on Ravelry. I really want to start keeping track of my yards knitted. I know I'm over 2 miles. I don't really do resolutions...but...maybe keeping track of my yards will be one. :)
