This is the scarf I knit from the yarn and the booklet I won in a 'new motto' contest for an online yarn store. I really like wearing it (although in my neck of the woods it hasn't been cold enough to do so very often....ugh!). It's great not to have to tie it or worry that it'll come undone and the color goes with just about everything.
As for resolutions for this new year, I have a few and just hope I can see them through. 1. To continue losing weight and becoming more active. I've already lost 15 pds. so my next short term goal is another 15 by mid April. 2. To spend less on impulse buying even for small items because 9 out of 10 times in the past, if I think about it for a couple of days before purchasing I wouldn't buy it more often than not. 3. Based on my number 2 resolution, I definitely want to save more in this unstable economy. We've worked too hard not to have enough to live comfortably on so there's no time like the present to begin, no matter how modestly. They are my goals and I hope to live up to each one of them to the letter. I wish all of you (if I have any readers of my blog left after my extended absence) a happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012 as well!
