Last Years New Years Resolutions

How did you do with last years resolutions?? I didn't do too bad. I finished a big box of children's sweaters for the Women's Shelter. As for my resolution to lose weight, I lost the same 10 lbs several times!! LOL I sent 2 wool sweaters to the Afghans for Afghans program. I have 5 pair of socks that I will send this week. (Better late than never) Used up one whole bin of worsted & sport weight yarns. (Still have lots to go.) I managed to keep from buying boxes of new yarn, so I didn't do too bad. This is the first year in I can't tell you how long, my stash has actually been reduced rather than gotten bigger. 

My goal for this year is to make a box of children's sweaters for the Clothing Bank. Maybe lose that 10lbs a few more times + more. 

I am keeping my fingers crossed that my store with do better. Since the economy went south my store has been limping along. I am only doing about half of what I did the first 6 years that I was open.  

Here's a sweater that I made for my granddaughter. I made a pair of long pants to go with it. It is a size 2 (she is 5 months right now) so she won't be wearing it for a while.  The yarn is a sport weight & embroidered very nicely on my Brother 750D. I am looking for more yarn like this in my stash as my DIL liked it & would like a couple more outfits made from it.

The sweater with the bunny is adorable. Nice to use both machines in one project!

Nice to see the work you have done. I seem to spend more time looking through other peoples work and getting ideas for projects than actually doing anything!
