This has been a happening year!
I moved into my own apartment in February
I got engaged in March
I planned my wedding and got married in SeptemberI moved (again) into my husband’s apartment
I knit socks for my husband
A baby set for a coworker
A very big blanket (This was my engagement present from my husband. He’s a keeper)
A sweater for me
A finger puppet just for fun
My wedding shawl
A honey cowl (made from my own handspun, no less)
A commissioned sweater that nearly killed me
A pair of worsted weight socks for my mom
And various other small projects, like hats and washcloths
I learned to spin and I bought a spinning wheel!
I also did some sewing – I finished a bathrobe and a vest and made a dress
Whew! That was a lot! I didn’t realize at the time how much I’ve done this year. No wonder I am tired!
Happy 2016, everyone! I know I keep saying this, but time is just flying by! I hope you all had a lovely evening last night (especially if you stayed up late) and that you were all safe going home (if you went out).
I guess this is the part where I boldly share my New Year’s Resolutions. I only have one this year, but I prefer to call it a goal rather than a resolution. A resolution sounds so pretentious, and once you fail (and you probably will) it is very hard to start back. A goal, on the other hand, can start (or restart) anytime, and seems so much more doable.
So my goal for 2016 is yoga. I want to spend at least 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week doing yoga. My main reason for choosing yoga is that I am tired of being stressed out all the time, and yoga is supposed to be good at calming you down. And gaining strength and flexibility are good things to work on as well. Right now my plan is to use YouTube to guide my sessions.
Do you do yoga? How do you like it? What suggestions would you give a beginner yogi?
