knit picks

"knit picks" is actually already the name of this website,
but i'm borrowing it for this post. ;)

I mentioned that I learned how to knit a couple months ago,
and I'm still enjoying it! Here are some knitting links for your Friday enjoyment:

 >> a new stitch to learn. 
 >> these point protectors are THE BEST for keeping your
      current project from falling off of your needles.
 >> a pretty boot cuff pattern
 >> just signed up for this sock class!
 >> a lovely little headband. 
 >> this sweet bowl = perfect for keeping yarn in check.

2013 // simplify

if i have to choose one word
to describe my goal for 2013, it's

the simple life.
the life unencumbered by things, by stuff,
by material nothing-ness.

not that i think i can attain this perfectly,
but it is my goal.

to clean out, to purge, to live with less,
to stop shopping so much.

((my husband bought me
for Christmas,
and i've already devoured it.
looking forward to re-reading
& putting into practice.))

what would your one word be?

also, the goals i posted about
last year are still ones i'm working on.
