Woke Up New

So, how was your New Year’s Eve/Day? I spent my New Year’s Eve at Chuck E Cheese, crocheting and listening to horrible pop music redone by Chuck E!

Yesterday was a bit better – I spent 12 hours untangling this unassuming skein of sock yarn that I bought 6-7 years ago at a now closed yarn store, and has been tangled for at least 5 years!

I’ve also been busy on my baby blankets. I finished 1 for my niece:

and my neighbor gave our kids some nice gifts again this year, so I decided to make a blanket for her daughter, who is due with her first baby soon. Of course I’ve been making girl baby blankets and she’s having a boy! So I started over with some nicely soft Bernat Softee, double stranded.

As to 2011, I’ve got the standard lose weight and find a new job resolutions, but I’ve also decided that this will be the year I untangle the trash bag full (!) of yarn that I have all connected. It will be so nice to get my stash even smaller than I did last year. Of course all the blankets I’ve made recently have been from new yarn, but afterward I’ll get some stash yarn used up, I resolve!

Happy 2011!
