I made an '07 new years resolution to knit just one thng at a time. I didn't ven try to keeo it. Some of us just arent good at commitment. But seeing all those knitters in real life and in blog land are finishing things left and right. So I figured maybe I there was something to this focusing thing. So I commited to the chevron scarf and only the scarf. Turns out I finished it. I'm mostly pleased. It's kind of a pool of psychedelic color. But, I think my 22 year old sister will like it.

I've finally been able to get some but not all of my old pics off my old computer that crashed and burned months ago. It's been kinda fun looking at old pics. Here's some socks I knit for James after dating for one year. We broke up like 17 days later but I pretty sure the fact that I knit for him had nothing to do with that. I knit them with Lorna's laces bulky in gray and charcoal.

As for the knitting, I'm plugging along on boring garter stitch scarf and chevron scarf. Never again will I knit 2 scarves at once. I hate knit ADD. Even without my attention difficulty there would be no knitting for me today. Sadly, it hurts way too much to lift my out of shape arms after killer pilates class. This is probably the most sore I've ever been in my life. Well second to back surgery. But I defintely still feel like the tin man. As in rusty, and in need of oil. Not in the I need of a heart way. At least not today.
