Looking forward

Time to start over on a few things:

1) Tracking knitting FO's. I'm hoping to get 20 pairs of socks done in 2008. I did 11 in 2007. We'll see - I also have sweater and shawl knitting planned, but my commute is going to get shorter. I will need to also cut back on my Internet time-wasting in order to do this...but I have a ton of yarn I need to (and want to) play with.

2) Tracking workouts. I got 486 miles of swimming in last year. I want to make that at least 500 this year, plus I am going to start keeping track of walking and biking miles, which aren't nearly as much as the swimming miles, but it's good to be able to look back on.

I don't really make resolutions, though.

Toward the 20-sock goal, I've finally cracked open my June '07 RSC kit and am hard at work on the Solstice Slip socks. I originally started in the Large size, but it was huge. I started over in the Medium, and this is much better. I need to bone up on my cabling without a cable needle though, or these are going to go REALLY slow.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year! I love how you solved the problem with your crab legs. Last year I noticed that you kept track of your swimming miles. That's a very cool idea that I am going to use when cycling weather comes back around. We're snow covered, so no cycling. I dream of being able to get a dozen pairs of socks in a year. Go for 20, I say.
