My new Mac Book Air is just what I wanted. She's lightweight, easy to use, sleek, elegant, and fast. Going from the netbook to ANYthing new is like going for a horse and buggy to a Maserati.She will suffice as the gift for all the occasions of 2014 and I couldn't be happier! She's my dream come true.
As you can see there has been knitting going on. Honestly, I don't remember the last time I told you about my knitting. I finished Imagine When by Joji Locatelli and promptly cast on Vestry Street by Kirsten Kapur. Pictures of Imagine When will, hopefully, happen this weekend. For now, suffice it to say, it was a very fun knit.
I enjoy knitting more than I have in the last 3 years and, as I said last week, it's due to pilates. Mary asked why pilates had made a difference in my knitting. I can sum up in one word. Strength. My shoulders and arms have been strengthened to the point they rarely ache. Before pilates they ached all the time and sometimes the hurt was too much. If I had more time to knit there would be more accomplished on Acorn Trail. The great new is the back is now complete and I'm moving onto a front section.
This past year I've only completed six projects, and only one of any size (Chicane). I hope to double that number in 2014 and to make (at least) 3 of them sweaters. This is not a resolution. Being strong is its own motivation, but being able to knit is pure icing on the cake.
