First Friday!

Hello everyone and welcome to the First Friday of 2007! This is surely something to celebrate, right? How did Week 1 go for all of you? So far - so good here.

I have printed out my resolutions and put them in several places - in my planner for work, on the mirror in my bathroom, on the fridge in the kitchen. I think that this will help me stay focused on what is important to me this year - what I need to accomplish - where I want to go!

How are you all doing? Did you all fall the the Resolution Wagon? That is okay - get back on and try again! Be your own best supporter - not your worst enemy!

I am excited to have made it through a week of this New Year! I actually got out some yarn from my stash and cast on something for ME! I had gotten a gorgeous skein of Lorna's Laces - Helen's Lace last summer to make the Half Pi Shawl and I cast on this week! I have the first set of the pi completed and have started on set 2! I am in love with this yarn - it is amazing. I selected the Vera colourway - and I am so happy with my selection!

This picture does not do the yarn justice - it is knitting up beautifully - burgundy's, rich browns, some amazing greens, and a dusky khaki - dyed perfectly! I will try and have my daughter get a picture of it next week and post my progress. If you have not knit this pattern - it is definately on my must knit list! I am flowing through the sections easily and can even knit while watching TV! So, I was so happy to pull this out of my stash and treat myself to this little gem. I did not realize that I had such a nice "stash store"!!

Speaking of "Stash Store" - on my plate for the weekend is to clean out and organize my stash closet - and my bedroom closets. There may be some destashing going on here next week, so be on the lookout for that!

So, there is my week one synopsis - drop me a note letting me know how you are all doing.

Have an awesome weekend everyone!

I am glad to see that you are taking care of both #2's in your resolutions.

Good for you! First knitted item is for yourself!

No resolutions for me this year. I have had too many years of long lists of things I needed to do and accomplish. This year is 'just be' year. Let the dust settle and take inventory of my life.

It sounds like your year is off to a good start! (Not to mention your first knitted project of the year...)

Be looking for something soon...

I knit some socks from that colorway of LL, and I just loved it! Those colors are so yummy.

That and LL's Black Purl are my two fave LL colorways. Enjoy it!

Thank you for visiting my blog! I see from your post that you are making a shawl with Helen's Lace. That is one of my most want-to-do projects! Is this the pattern on the ball band? I just haven't decided which colorway to use. I saw it knit in Watercolor and might do that.

Which Noni are you making? I'm doing well on my resolutions so far.
