I started a new project a few days ago.
It's a baby blanket for donation. I'm using my "go-to" stitch pattern that I've been using for years.
I always change up the border depending on if I'm making a boy blanket or one for a girl.
I think this one will be for a girl.
The body is written up and once I decide what to do with the border hope to share it with you.

For Christmas, I was gifted with an Amazon gift card. I purchased a few books with it; two are of the crochet variety.
The first one is a book of squares.
I'm not familiar with this designer, but I figured in a book of 365 granny squares I'd be able to find a few that I liked.
This is one of my favorites so far.
I also purchased a book to organize ideas.
It says it's for knitting, but I thought it could easily be adapted for crochet.
It is a journal of sorts with an area for project notes and details as well as a graph page where you can make a drawing.
Isn't that a neat book?

In other new year news...
I don't set resolutions any more, but I do have a few "goals" I'd like to strive toward.
The first is to get my craft room organized this year.
I've been looking on "Craigslist" for some sort of wall unit that has glass doors.
I want to have a place to put my yarn without it getting all dusty.
If I can't find what I'm looking for I may end up going to IKEA.
I want to get something like this....
without the big price tag.
The other goal I have is to take off some weight.
I know this is a common theme among us women, but one I'm going to strive toward this year.
I have a date with Weight Watchers tomorrow morning.
I hope your new year is off to a fabulous start.
Wishing you bountiful blessings,
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.
