Happy New Year

>> Saturday, January 1, 2011

Happy New Year!  I can't believe the holidays are over.  We have had a fun couple of weeks of gluttony and lots of relaxing.  We all took a week off from school, work, and responsibility....so nice.  I had so many plans to share with you of new recipes and projects but we ate and gave away everything and I kind of just went with the flow and relaxed this year.  Nice, but I wish I had bothered to stop and commemorate a bit more.  Here are my knitted projects from last year.  I could have sworn I made more things but alas this is all.  I am hoping that 2011 will see more finished selfish knits because most of them are languishing in tote bags in my office closet waiting for sleeves, or seams.


At the start of a new year I don't do resolutions...to much pressure, but I do believe in taking some stock of your life and making some intentions for the new year.  A gentler more forgiving approach to hard and fast resolute promises to improve your life.  The one thing that I really intend on improving is my approach to handmade holidays.  I hate the rush to finish and by the time I think of things to make in December the only way to finish it would be to rush.  So I am following Kristyn's lead and starting an ADENTure for the year 2011.  Some of the projects I want are small things to fit in a stocking at Christmas and others are a bit more challenging, to make the actual stockings.  I am looking forward to a bright new year and seeing what all of you create!  Thank you so much for stopping by this small space and sharing your kind words. 

Happy New Year!!!    XOXOXO  Andrea

Sounds like a great holiday! I agree with your wish to make gift making a little less stressful - I'm planning on knitting a pair of socks a month, and putting them away for next Christmas. :o)

Being more organised sounds like a great plan. Happy New Year to you

I adore this collection of knits!

Here's hoping to a 2011 filled with all the yarn and finished "selfish" knits your heart desires :-)
