Happy New Year

Think I should try this again?? LOL!
I'm going to challenge myself to posting at least a couple times a week, if not daily. Even if I only stop by to say hi ... I think it's important for me to be able to express myself "on paper." That's something I haven't done for a long time, and I think it's had a negative impact on me ... Being able to express myself is necessary for me to find more peace, I believe.
I've totally forgotten how to add pics and projects so if anyone happens to read this and can offer some quick tips, I would appreciate it!! Otherwise, I hope to re-learn those things soon! :)
Currently I am knitting a pair of socks with the Hazel Knits Artisan group on Ravelry. It is a mystery sock KAL, and the pattern is called Gentian. I bought my first skein of Hazel Knits yarn for this project ... and I'm LOVING it! The yarn and the pattern! The colorway I chose is Spanish Wine in the Piquant base. It's turning out beautifully.
I got a late start since I didn't start until midway through January, but I'm challenging myself to knit more again. It's so soothing for me! Especially with the lil one! It's a little funny thinking I have a 3 month old son and a 7 month old grandson, but I love both sooo much!!! Love my other kids too, but it's definitely nice having lil ones around again .. :)
Back to Hazel Knits ... I am planning on joining the sock club they have, my first shipment to be receive in Feburary ... Can't wait! I've been wanting to join a sock club again for quite some time. I miss being able to be a part of the Socks That Rock club, but financially things have not been good here.
My last relationship caused a lot of changes in my life ... and a lot of them weren't good. I know that ultimately I am responsibl for where I am today, but I let "him" control so much of what I did for the last 4-1/2 years ... time to be strong again ... to become "me" again ... :)
Okay ... I took the first step ...
