I know by now you've all seen or at the very least heard about the devastation in Haiti. I amazes me that we can go from complaining about our economy to rallying in order to help. Amazing, how people who have so little still find they can give a little.
My handmade life has put out a call for help and I've just donated, will you? It's a great cause and you might even win some yarn!
Check out her site then go to Doctors without borders and make a donation of your very own.

Just checkn them off!

I think 2010 is going to be a year of learning and firsts!
I'm expanding my knitting capabilities:

Hats; check!
Jane- with mock cables I thought, sure!

Autumn- how about a new stitch, seed stitch.

Star Crossed slouch- How about REAL cables!!

Then because I haven't made any yet...

Fingerless Mitts: Check!
75 yds- magic looped and very easy!

Next up, a sweater!

Start again

Happy New year! I hope everyone had a great Holiday Season? I did, I like when things go quiet. I think that is why I love winter time so much, things just slow down and if I'm being honest, I can hide easier.
I don't know why I do it, I really don't. I was making progress, going out to knit meets, hanging out with friends, I even joined a co-ed softball team! and then I stopped.
So since this is the season of starting over, I really want to.

In 2010 I'd like to:
1. Be less shy- Go to knit meets/fibery gatherings
2. Smile more often
3. Knit a sweater/cardigan
4. Be active- I almost cried when my boys bought the Wii Fit so I could do it too.
5. Like myself- others seem to, why not me?
6. Do not add to my yarn stash/knit-cro with what I have.*

* we're on a budget in 2010 and new purchases might be a little hard to swing but I'm sure there will be exceptions.
