WTH is a YO?

Okay...I just learned to knit over the Christmas break....and by knit I mean casting on, the knit stitch and the pearl stitch.....I practiced that for a while...then I really ventured out on a limb......stockinette stitch :D

After making several practice swatches I got bored and decided I needed to do a project....Enter the YO (Yarn Over).....

I really wanted to do a drop stitch scarf to wrap around a scarf purse....After several embarrassing and clueless posts to various knitting message boards I still didn't get it...SOooooo...I just did it...and it was EASY!...Of course, being the over achiever that I am...hehehe...I did 3 YO.

Here it is!

I'm 30 Years Old!

Today is my New Years Day..My Birthday!!!

I've spent the past several weeks thinking about this milestone and wondering how I would feel to have reached 30 and reflecting on where I've been and where I hope to be.

My first blog related act of this year was to delete my archives. I want to focus on the future instead of the past.

Several years ago I went through a period of self realization during which I decided to start being honest with myself and others and start living life by my own rules....There has been alot of fall out from that but I don't regret it a the end it's been worth it. I do regret that I haven't stayed true to that movement every day...but it's been a growth process.

I feel like I'm growing into myself now...and I'm not talking about my ever-widening ass ;-) I feel like I treat myself better and expect others to do that as well. I find myself apologizing less (for things that weren't my fault in the first place..a nasty habit I had) I also feel like I need alot less validation from others these days. And all of that feels GREAT!
