2011 has been a pretty fickle year for me so far. quite the mixture of happy and sad, up and down, back and forth… you catch my drift. i won’t go into detail, as it’s been somewhat of a personal journey, but i will say that it’s all for the better. day by day is my motto these days.
that said, i’m eager to catch up with friends old and new. but until that day actually comes, i’ve enjoyed keeping in touch with my peeps via facebook, twitter, and email. i’m a pretty shy, socially awkward girl in real life, so i’m very happy to have these social media outlets to connect with such an amazing, creative, friendly, and inspiring community. communicating with friends online has really helped keep me focused (and sane!) these past few months. so thank YOU for being full of awesome – you are very much appreciated!
sadly, i seem to have really lost my knitting mojo. the last time i actually started and finished a project was in january! i do have a beast on the needles right now though, it’s just that i don’t seem to be making much progress:
it’s an adult sized blanket, and according to the pattern i’m probably about 40% done. this is the only thing i’ve been knitting since february, and in normal circumstances i’d be finished already. i have daydreamed about starting other projects, but there’s been no desire to actually cast anything on. what’s the opposite of startitis? because that’s what i’ve got, LOL.
