…got all tossed out the window.  It’s now Jan 1oth.

I was going to finish the current Galileo mitt, my Polar Chullo, continue working on Manzanita, and the current Lau sock…..then bring Manzanita & Lau with me on our trip to visit my parents in Austin.

However, I ended up walking into a tree branch Tuesday (really) and ended up with a cut down to my skull & my first ever stitches.  Kinda blew the whole day for knitting.

So I didn’t finish the stranded items.  I brought Lau (no problems getting through security with the metal circs) but actually never worked on them.  Rather, I worked on writing up a new pattern (will probably put it out for test knitting today or tomorrow).  We had a very nice, relaxing, lazy few days with my parents — very much needed.

We flew home Saturday and I was feeling a bit sick.  This morning I had a fever, muscle aches, etc etc.  What fun.  Better now.

I’ve been chatting with some friends re: resolutions.  I guess I don’t really think of them as resolutions, but rather as overarching goals.  I do best, I think, when I revisit them monthly.

So….goals for this coming week?  Finish one Galileo mitt, finish the polar chullo, yadda yadda yadda.  And get Sw’Elegant published & the new socks out for test knitting.

ETA:  Oh, I’m a bad blogger.  I forgot to mention (and no pics yet, sorry) that waiting for me were blog contest prizes:

From Lazy Kate Creates :  some lovely Silkie STR in Space Dust (destined for a hat for hubby, with a name like that — Dave is totally into astronomy) and the book Blogging for Bliss (with some great tips and blog examples;  it’s  a book to browse while drinking a nice cup of tea, with laptop ready).

From Darcy:  some very cute Pirate gift tags, with a space for writing in fiber/fabric care.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!
