Blogging

I blog about as often as I journal. Which is to say, never. That is bad. Writing is good. I want to write more–I need more writing in my life.

Here are my resoutions this year:

1. More writing. I need a creative outlet. I figure this blog can help. We’ll see. It hasn’t so far. Maybe I can try posting once a month?
2. More yoga. I’m shooting for 3 yoga sessions/week.
3. More knitting. Yes, that is a resolution, even though I am already knitting a lot. I’d like to try sweaters this year. I’ve been knitting with determination for about 3 years now and I still have not made a sweater. It’s about time I did. In fact, I’ve started a sweater for E. It’s the children’s neck-down cardigan from Knitting Pure and Simple. I love this pattern. I love this sweater, even though I’m knitting it in an inexpensive acryllic blend yarn. It’s soft, at least, and will be adorable on him.

Also, to add to my knitting, I’ve joined the yahoo monthly dishcloth knit along. This has been great fun so far, and a great practice for me at having UFO’s. Usually, with small projects especially, I will knit and knit and knit obsessively the one project until it’s finished. It turns out that when you have multiple projects going, you can switch back and forth and that’s fun because there’s variety. (I can thank the Doctor Who scarf for this revelation. I was very tempted to strangle myself with 16 feet of multi-striped garter stitch. The good news is I can see the light at the end of the time vortex–it’s almost finished.)

OK, so those are my resolutions. Not too unreasonable, I think. I guess I can post blogs about how they are going. I definitely want to post about knitting. I’ve been geeking out on all the knitting blogs (the Harlot is still my favorite by far) and, evidently, I really enjoy reading about what other people are knitting. Weird, I know.
