In the year 2007

Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season. We had a great time in Carbondale though the visit was too short, as always. The stupid neck pain I've been dealing with did prevent me from knitting the last couple weeks, but I have high hopes for 2007. Once I get my MRI done on Friday we'll know for sure what's causing the pain and I'm sure I'll be back in knitting business. :) At least I've been able to catch up on some reading!

Here's my little knitting wrap up of 2006 and my goal for 2007:

2006
  • I did alright knitting from the stash, but I know I added a bit too much to it as well.
  • I knit my first lace project (the Baltic Sea Stole) and loved it!
  • I received a Gold Medal in the Knitting Olympics.
  • I attended Stitches Midwest again and had an excellent time.
  • I knit much more for myself and Matt.
  • I became a more consistent blogger. Thanks to everyone who reads this blog!

2007
  • Only one goal: Keep the stash from growing! As we will most likely be moving by the end of this summer I am motivated to minimize packing by knitting through the stash. :)

January 2007 Knitting Goals - all of the following projects are somewhat tentative as I need to finish up a couple items from December while taking care of my silly neck...

1) Cheesylove sweater from Knitty2) Forbes Forest Scarf from Scarf Style
3) Socks in Yarntini 4-8-15-16-23-42
4) Finish the Trinket Scarf!!! (my oldest work in progress)

Lordy, you'll have those goals met by Valentine's day. Happy New Year. I'll be holding a good thought for you on Friday.

I'm planning on group for Wednesday, what about you? Are you completely off of knitting until your neck feels better? Is anyone else in town this week?

Best wishes on recovery and the MRI. I know you'll be whipping through the knitting soon. :)
