It's a New Year!

How exciting, 2011. Now it's going to take a whole year for me to get used to writing "11" at the end of my dates. I'm doing okay so far.

I think I may actually have a new year's resolution this year. I know, right? I never have resolutions, or if I do, they are loosely kept. Carin from Round the Twist, a video podcast I follow, called them "guidelines." I love that, because really, "resolutions" just sounds like too much.

So my guideline for this year is inspired by an old episode of Brass Needles (another podcast I follow) where one of Miss Kalendar's guests said her new year's resolution was to make at least one thing from or inspired by each of her many craft books. I happen to have many craft books (take a look at all the fiber-related ones here on Ravelry) that range from knitting and crochet books, to sewing, to stenciling, etc. And I don't think I've made a singe thing out of them. Well, I think I've knit a couple things, but really, some books have only been flipped through. This needs to change. It's great to have these books as eye candy and inspiration, but I really need to make something more of them. Thus, my resolution guideline is to make at least one thing from/inspired by each of my many craft books. We'll see how this goes...

p.s. Did you notice that I made the column width on my blog wider? Now I can make my pictures bigger. Yay!
