The Year It All Happens

I have declared 2008 as "The Year It All Happens". It's all gonna happen. All of it. For you. For me. Whatever It you've been waiting for, It's gonna happen in 2008.

While it is now 8 days into '08, I haven't been slacking, I've been busier than ever, just not with blogging. 7 days into a lifestyle change (no, nothing like that) I am down 1 1/2 pounds. That's 0.99% of my starting weight for any Big Losers out there. I'm heading for 15%. This alone has kept me busy for the entire week.

I also have some knitting adventures to show. I bring you:


My first and probably only knitting on snow photo. These have had two fingers of ends woven in so far. I haven't touched them since, but every morning when it's cold, I look longingly at them and know that I will get to it just in time for the first scorching blush of Spring.

Jaywalker 4.0 is finished!! They've been worn and washed already, even. Of course, 4.2 stripes very evenly and neatly, while 4.1 must have had an extra strategic decrease that I forgot about... just check out the pooling!!!

And I got to see the Peapod's owner:

Yeah. Baby!

And here's a new baby sweater:

And a grown-up thing for me:

It's a second capelet, because I can't wear the gray one Every day.

That's all for now. (Welcome back.) Thank you.

Glad to see you back!
I have also decided that this is THE YEAR! My goal is 10% of my bodyweight, hopefully by summer, and its also to just eat better, do more, knit lots and finish the things I start.

Oh and move house (WE HAVE FLOORS!!!)

I have been meaning to email you, and also meaning to send this little late xmassy gift, but alas it is evidently not the year for those things!
