Do you ever have those ages that for some reason call out to you that something exciting will happen that year?
“16 will be the best year ever!”
“23 I KNOW something exciting will happen! I can feel it!”
For me, those years were 16 (driving privileges, vroom vroom), 19 (drinking privileges, shots shots), 24, and 27.
Yesterday I turned 27 years old and while I barely feel any different, there is a sneaking suspicion within me that says, “keep your eyes open, kid. It’s gonna get good.”
And so I decided that it might be time to make some birthday resolutions:
- When in doubt, knit it out.
- Keep it positive, so positive things will kick the negatives’ asses
- Be someone that will make others exclaim, “that girl’s got gumption! Hoo-ee!”
- Finish husband’s cardigan (he deserves it)
- Find my motivation
On a final note, I finished a quick, project called Forest Stroll in Ella Rae Mega. I always forget how satisfying super bulky knits are, and how much I love seeing stitches blown up to ginormous scale. 1 stitch per inch? Yes, please!
I wore this comfortably with my fall jacket all day yesterday at the mall and didn’t overheat once; ah, the joys of pure wool.
