Resolution: Gratitude.

At the turn of the year, we often think of how we can better our lives. We fret that we need to lose weight and exercise (difficult to balance with our need to knit - although you can always follow Ingrid's example and knit while doing crunches on an exercise ball). We worry that we should spend more time with family and friends (knitting buddies DO count). We angst that we need to get out of debt (although, for yarnies with a luscious LYS nearby, this can be downright impossible).

I say, let's all resolve to be more grateful.

Grateful that we have two hands and the joint mobility to knit and purl, if not the dexterity for four-stranded fair isle.

Grateful for our health, and grateful that even if we're sick, we have knitting as an alternative to daytime TV.

And most of all, grateful that, no matter how hectic our job might be, we do NOT do THIS for a living:

That vehicle hopefully has nothing at all to do with any of the FRESH and fantastic fibers which keep rolling into loops!

Nope...although we have had a year with two floods and one ice storm, we have thankfully had no need for a Skunk Whisperer. This truck was spotted outside a Westlake Hardware.
