Some End of the Year Thoughts

CandyLand Oddball Blanket
Time is so fleeting and there never seems to be enough of it; here it is almost the end of the year 2010. As I think back over the year some thoughts come to mind. I think hubby and I need to plan to visit our daughter more in the coming year and not just wait til she comes home on the holidays. We enjoy our time together so much; and a few times a year just isn't enough.

I got stuck on the letter R as I typed up memories of Mom. I really want and need to finish the alphabet. Hoping to think of an R memory soon. When I have the alphabet finished, I may print for the rest of the family.

I've been really busy with things on Bridge and Beyond in the last couple of months. Did quite a bit of P.R. which seems to have paid off, in that we're getting more frequent donations, and more donations from new pairs of helping hands which is always exciting. The more donations we receive means we can help more people in need. My hope for the coming year is that continues to be the case. If you've not been to the blog lately, please do. Even if you're too busy to knit or crochet something at the moment; spending time on the blog is helpful...as is leaving comments. Both help the page rank with regard to search engines, and placing well on search engines helps us be more visible to possible knitters and crocheters who can help.

I'm hoping to finish the border on a ghan I'm currently working on and get it laundered and blocked in the next couple of days, and finish a ghan my daughter started for the same cause while she was here in town.

I don't make resolutions, though I do sorta make goals for myself for the year. Do you? Belated Merry Christmas to you, and Happy New Year. If you're traveling; travel safe.

The photo was from a 2nd start of the Oddball blanket I mentioned not being happy with previously. I used 2 strands of fingering weight yarn to accomplish the right thickness and since I had the blanket longer then is normal, didn't do anything fancy in terms of stitches. Just did your basic garter. It made a nice contrast both in color and texture to the previous strip. This is only the start; forgot to get a photo of the completed section before I mailed it off. Darn it. I'm expecting another oddball blanket shortly to work on titled confetti. The one pictured was titled Candy Land.


  1. Happy New Year, Sandy! Resolution is to eat healthier, cheaper and tastier, find time to exercise and relax more are my goals for 2011.

  2. Thanks Joansie,
    Good Resolutions, some of my goals are similar with regard to trying to be and do healthier things. The walking is the tough thing for me, when I'm working and on my feet all day the last thing I want to do is walk to exercise; but I do want to try and do that when I'm not working.

  3. I agree with you about never having enough time. Sure wish there was a way to figure out how to get more...so I could do all the things I have to and the things I would like to do :)

    A very happy New Year to you and I wish you the best!!!

  4. Happy New Year Sandy. Time flips by so quickly ... when we were young we thought a single 24 hour day dragged & would never end.

    Thank you for your friendship, I've enjoyed our visits.
