Well, we are now in a new year with a clean slate. We have only ourselves to blame if the slate get messed up by our actions. I plan to keep my year upbeat and hassle free. So...that means I will need to get to crocheting on my yarn in my closet. It's been 5+ years now since I retired with the purpose of emptying my yarn closet. We know how that has gone. I haven't increased the yardage much but I haven't reduced it by much either. The yarn gets more expensive and in smaller skeins...it looks like less but it isn't. Anyway, it keeps me out of trouble. When you have a crochet hook in one hand and yarn in the other hand, you can't get into much trouble. I hope to make some scarves to donate to a charity this month and then make some shawls. The days are getting longer and that always cheers me. Now I must take down the Christmas flags and put up the winter flags. Here's our New Year's Eve toast to 2013.
