I received a wonderful gift from Rosemary this weekend, which was desperately needed to release me from my knitting funk. Look!
Lantern Moon (my favorite!) DPN's, sock yarn, and the Yarn Harlot's book, which I've been wanting to read for awhile. This will set me on my way to learning to use DPN's (New Year's Resolution # 7) and learning to knit socks (turning heels! yikes!). Especially since I just recently found this site with knitting videos that explain how to knit with DPN's! Holy crap, I'd pictured it completely wrong in my mind. Now that I understand the concept and have some inspirational sock yarn, I might be able to figure this four-needle system out.
In other news, I'm making good progress on #1 of my New Year's Resolutions. Rick and I spent the weekend working on organization projects for the house. Old magazines and tupperware containers that we've been moving from place to place for seven years are out the door. We bought a great old trunk from a local antique shop--lots of storage possibilites. Rick installed several new shelves in the kitchen and closet, including these sliding shelves that he built himself. And check out our "new" spice racks!
Things are looking up here at Chez Messy.
Hooray for progress!
