Happy New Year!

It doesn't seem possible that tomorrow will start a new year. This year has just flown past so fast! I guess that's what happens as you get older. I'm looking forward to the new year with anxious anticipation. There will be a lot of different things happening this year and I'm looking forward to the challenges that will confront me.

I plan on trying to do more knitting in the new year. I taught myself to knit in my 20's and did quite a bit back then. Since then however, I've been doing crocheting which I consider myself an expert at doing. That's why I want to get back to some knitting. I want to learn to follow the directions and learn new stitches. I'm sure this will be fun. A new friend of mine sent me the 2008 knitting calendar, so I will be attempting some of those patterns first.

I've lost 50 pounds in 2007 and I want to lose at least 50 more this year! I'm hoping that my knee heals so that I can get back to my walking routine again.

I hope that anyone reading this has a wonderful new year!

Mary Ann I am here and I am reading, and I also wish you the very best in 2008. I am so proud of you for losing those 50 pounds and I know you can repeat that this year.

I look forward to seeing some of your knitting projects too.
