I started off 2010 in a comfortable environment among friends. I’m not the same person I was a year ago, and I pray that my joy will surface again someday soon. For now, though, I am okay with just setting short-term goals to celebrate the little victories. Knitting has become one of my chief free-time activities, so it’s only fitting that I spent a good part of the day doing that. A big motivator is the deadline I’m under. These socks are slated to be a birthday gift for my son’s girlfriend, and her birthday is in two weeks. Since she’ll be back to school before then, I’d like to have the gift completed so my son can take it to campus and give it to her in a timely fashion. Here is my progress after Day One of knitting…
