Happy New Year!

I finished my Christmas knitting. Four hats and a scarf. Not too shabby.

After wrapping those up, I made it my goal to finish 2011 with no WIPs on the needles (except for a movie theatre sock, and the sock yarn blanket). I have met that goal! To really super dooper meet it, I need to sew on two buttons, block a lace scarf, block a vest, and block a cardigan. .... We'll see.

I am goal oriented. I have been thinking about goals for 2012 for the past month or so. My main goals seem to be health and fitness oriented.

1. Run 3 half marathons (already registered for 2, and am looking for a third).
2. Continue to get fitter, faster, stronger, and healthier in general.
3. Hike up Mt. Si.
4. Knit more lace. (Especially Evenstar, the Vernal Equinox Shawl, and Andrea's Magic of Spring))
5. Read more consistently.
6. Blog more, all over the place.

I can think of lots of other things I'd like to do next year, but let's keep the list fairly simple.

I'd best get to blocking that lace scarf!
