My mission for the next few days is to add atleast a foot to the gray cabled scarf I’m making. I also need to start working on some cabled caps in pink and black. ūüôā

New Year, New Me!

I haven’t posted in over a year!¬† Wow, where do I begin?¬† I have made a lot of my own patterns, and Christmas was a lot of fun and work.¬† I managed to knit one gift a day, which means everyday I made a scarf, hat, or set of fingerless¬†gloves.¬†¬† This year I also added a lot of crocheted squares to¬†Anthony’s blanket.¬† It is pretty big now, and I think it is officially finished.¬†

Last year was pretty exciting since I decided I wanted to get in shape.¬† Weight loss isn’t really a goal.¬† I just really want to feel healthy.¬† I noticed that I was getting out of breath a lot, and I wasn’t een doing that much work to get that way.¬† I started by super gluing a pedometer to my waist.¬†¬† Well, not really, but I did make it a habit to wear it everyday, and to check it every few hours to make sure I was moving.¬† I also started to do some Taebo¬†and Turbo Jam videos, but I didn’t really get into those til a few months ago.¬† I prefer Turbo Jam to Taebo.¬†

This year I invested in a Wii and Wii Fit Plus.¬† It’s only been a few days so there’s no noticeable¬†improvements yet, but I do hope to report changes in a month or so.¬† I have decided to not turn on the Wii until I have finished a Turbo Jam video.¬† I know that Turbo Jam is super fun and totally worth it, but I think if I do the Wii, I will tire myself out with the Just Dance 2 game and I won’t have the energy to do Turbo Jam.¬† Also, I know my son will rather play on the Wii than watch me kick invisible¬†Turbo Jam butt.¬†

Finally, this year I am going to challenge my self in my knitting.¬† I am starting by doing a reversible cabled scarf in gray.¬† It’s not a hard pattern, but I haven’t made a scarf with cables before since it seemed a bit time-consuming.¬† When I finish the cabled scarf I am going to knit the Uncle Argyle Scarf from Son of a Stitch and Bitch.¬† I already bought my yarn, pink and brown, and I have made a back up copy of the pattern just in case I can’t find the book at the library when I need it.¬†

I will post pictures of the things I remembered to photograph soon.¬† ūüôā
