Bummer!


I had hoped that todays post would include a picture of a completed bear for Sebastian. Sadly, I finished the remaining arm, and one out of two ears before I realized that I wasn't going to have enough yarn.

Seb was a good sport about it though. It's nice to see him excited about something I'm making him. The thing about Sebastian is that he's too young yet to have much tact. He doesn't lie about things just to make someone feel better...and he's very particular about letting me know when there's something he doesn't like. He thinks I look bad in glasses. He hates my hair when I cut it short. Tells me that I suck at drawing when we're sitting down doodling.

So when he told me that he really likes the bear, even though it hasn't grown its ears yet, I believed him.

Anyway, I ordered an extra skein of yarn yesterday, so once that arrives all I need to do is finish his ears and then I'll post a picture of it.

While I'm waiting for the yarn to arrive, I'm knitting a new pair of socks. I suppose that's a big suprise.

And speaking of socks, I thought I'd post a picture of the cover from one of the books that my Dad got me for Christmas. This is a terrific book, and right now I'm just trying to decide which sock I should attempt first.

I got my new glasses last night and it's taking some getting used to. Normally, I end up getting a round frame, but this time my lense is a bit narrower...and I'm not sure yet if that was such a wise decision, because when I look up or down, my eyes end up looking above or below the lense which means that my eyes have to adjust, and sometimes that really sucks ass when you're walking down the stairs, heh.


With the New Year, as always I try to set some goals for myself.

First thing's first, I want to quit smoking. I've really cut down a lot since I've started knitting, but that's not good enough. I'm on day 4 of Wellbutrin, gearing up to quit next week. I quit for three months the last time using Zyban and it was actually quite easy, and I'm not sure why I was stupid enough to go all that time only to start back up, so I'm doing it again.

I expect after cutting down as much as I have that it should be easier this time. My only issue right now is that on these pills I've had a horrible time getting to sleep the last two nights. Insomnia is a side effect, but I never noticed it the last time.

I also want to go through my house, get rid of the things we don't use, and reorganize it better by finding better ways to store things since we only have two closets in this whole house. We seem to be packratting it a bit as of late, and it's really starting to get on my nerves. Then I want to paint the walls.

I want to read more this year. Last year I read maybe 5 books total, which isn't typical for me at all.

Knitting wise, I want to be able to continue to try new projects that challenge me. I hope to document my projects a bit better this year, because only a few things I made last year ever made it to my blog.

I also plan on going through all my yarn and planned projects, and getting that all organized.

I'd also like to be able to knit both Phil and Sebastian sweaters that they won't be ashamed to wear in public.

That might prove to be just as difficult as quitting smoking. :)
