Hi Holly and Everyone:muah:
I finally realized that I will receive a message indicating a post here after each time I visit, so if I don’t visit regularly, I don’t hear anything! I guess that’s why I never know what’s going on. I’ll try to be better about checking in, at least daily.
We had a white Christmas here in Winston-Salem as well. I didn’t hear the final count, but it sure was pretty since our son was already here from Charlotte, safe and sound. Right after the holiday he moved to the DC area. :verysad:
If anyone is in need of yarn, the Hobby Lobby here in NC has some good yarn on sale. I don’t know if the sale is company-wide, but it’s worth checking on. They also had lidded, clear containers on sale 30% off so I got a couple. My New Year’s resolution is to clean out my knitting closet and organize my yarn. We’ll see if I actually do it!
I usually decide to lose weight over the new year, but I decided to start back in October. Thus far I’ve lost 22 pounds! I was wearing size 10s, which were getting tight, but now I’m in 8s, heading toward 6s. I’m so proud of myself! I was starting to give up hope, but I decided I was just eating tooooo much.
I’m working on a Celtic Aran Afghan pattern from Ravelry to auction for charity this summer at the Gerard Butler Fan Convention in Las Vegas. Everything is Gerry-themed, so besides the Celtic symbols, the color of the yarn matches his eyes. The pattern is filled with cables, which I haven’t done a ton of before, so it’s giving me fits, but I think I’m finally on a roll.
Has anyone heard anything from Mama Dawn? She seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth! So sad; I miss her!
Have a wonderful New Year all! I’m so happy to be part of this group.
