I saw this on another blog and enjoyed it, so here you go…
The First Day of the Month Meme
This meme requires you to post the first sentence of the first blog post of the month…. sort of shows where I have been over the course of the year.
January: “I am finally feeling better.”
I was pretty sick for the last few months of 2006 and into the beginning of 2007. Being pregnant this time around was hard work.
February: “OK, as usual, I am the last to the party again.”
I continually find myself one of the last people to knit somthing popular. Clapotis, Jaywalkers, etc.
March: “Well, I have hit the mid point pregnancy wise.”
This seems so far away. I really have to admit, I miss being pregnant.
April: “I have been dying to start the Chevron scarf that everyone seems to be doing right now using 2 skeins of Socks that Rock, and since we happened to be in Edmonton this weekend, and since River City Yarns happens to be the only store in Western Canada that stocks STR, I just had to get some.”
Apparently April was a month kick started by a run-on sentence…
May: “Since it’s Friday, I figured I would show you something pretty.”
Another Fo. Yea.
June: “Another day and another baby project done.”
I worked on baby projects all summer in hopes of being able to dress Monkey in hand knits all winter.
July: “Not here. I am still waiting.”
I couldn’t wait to meet Monkey. She still managed to make me wait a few extra days before she showed up.
August: “Oh yes, the finished socks are currently winging their way to my sockapalooza pal and I can’t wait to see if they fit.”
This swap was the one which ended all swaps for me.
September: “Well, we went to the wedding this weekend and while it was a wonderful affair, I am extremely tired and so is Husband.”
We were lucky enough to be able to attend good friends of ours wedding. It was wonderful and the icing on the cake was that Monkey slept for 4 hours so we could dance the night away.
October: ” Two weeks ago, I managed to get one of the last copies of Cat’s new book – New Pathways for Sock Knitters: Book One at my LYS and it was such a treat to open the book and know instantly that almost every single sock design (and let me tell you, there are a ton) was something that would not only give me a beautiful and well designed pair of socks, but would also expand my knitting skills and open my mind to a completely new way of making socks.”
Apparently, October also began with a run on sentence.
November: “Just a few random things this Thursday to report.”
Halloween, endpaper mitts, and baby cardigans captured my attention at the beginning of this month…
December: “Whew, another finished project off the needles.”
I tend to start and work on a number of projects at the same time. This means a lot of long stretches without any FO’s and then bang… FO’s everywhere…
Wow, my life over the last year in a few sentences. Seems pretty inconsequential in comparison to what has really happened over the last year. A new baby, a lost tooth, a birthday party for a 5 year old, and a new home for good, furry, felines. I wonder what the new year will bring?
Merry Christmas all. I hope that everyone has a wonderful day full of family and good food. See you in the New Year.
