One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: To rise above the little things. ~ John Burroughs

Is it just me or did 2008 just fly by?  It seems like I was just posting my farewell to 2007 and it’s already time to bid 2008 goodbye.

All in all, 2008 was a pretty good year (for both knitting and my life in general).

I finally found my sock mojo:

And, I developed some sweater mojo:

I should be finishing another sweater soon:

I knit a bunch of wash/dishcloths:

And, I knit something I needed:

The highlight of 2008 was definitely finding Sadie.  She is such a joy to have around and I firmly believe that she was destined to be my dog.

Unfortunately, I did experience heartbreak again this year.  I had to say goodbye to my beloved Samantha.    My big wish for 2009 is to get through the year without any of my pets dying.   (It’s been a rough couple of years.)

Since I detail all of my projects on Ravelry, I’ve decided to do something different with this blog (well, at least for 2009).   For the next 365 days, I am going to take one picture a day and post it here.    I’ve decided I want to challenge myself to look more closely at the world around me and also to document each day in my life.    I have no idea what I’ll find to photograph each day, but I’ll figure it out.  I also want to experiment with Picnik and discover more of their editing tools (I tend to use the same ones over and over).      I’ll still do knitting posts from time to time, but for the most part this blog is going to become a picture blog.

Happy New Year!

  1. Happy New Year, and good health to you and yours for the whole time!

    I like the idea of challenging ourselves to do something new. I want to do that too.

  2. I lost pets as well & would like to also not lose any next year. Plus not have all the other disasters that we’ve endured….

    Happy New Year!
