it seems that in blogland everyone is all for the resolutions and the recappings of years. i'm not so much that kind. i rolled over in bed last night (several days late) to tell badly coloured boy that my new years resolution was to manage stress better. not to stress less, see, because i am hardwired for that and have little control in that respect. but this year instead of absolutely freezing up in panic over the fact that, say, i have a dissertation due in october (yes, i have already freaked out over the 'nearness' of that date) i am going to say to myself 'duh. that's actually quite a long time away. relax'.
oh, okay, also i vow this year to not let the shower get all gross and mouldy. i always neglect cleaning the shower until it's too late.
i do also promise to photograph and type up the pattern for the Baby E Noro Entrelac Scarf. I've finished it, but it needs blocking.
i got a little distracted by a trip to combined mecca spotlight/ ikea today. spotlight never have the nice patterns in the pattern books, so just to torture myself i asked them to find me a built by wendy pattern.... which they had! it caught me totally off guard, and i couldn't decide whether i actually wanted it! but i found some very nice black and cream sort of florence broadhurst/ bold liberty print voile which sealed the deal. now i wish i'd asked about this one too... it wouldn't hurt to go back tomorrow and found out, would it? given that there's a half-price sale on patterns right now...
