Cpurl Year in Review
I saw this on LadyLungDoc's blog, who saw it on Ruth's blog and borrowed the idea, which is to post a line or two from each blog month of the past year. It's funny how each random little snippet can take me back to a particular place in life and the issues or feelings, good or bad, I was dealing with at the time. It's a lot like when you pick up your knitting and instantly flash back to what you were doing/watching/listening to, the last time you were working on the project.

I posted a peek of this yarn the other day for Valkryie but can't resist a full frontal

The seemingly endless saga of my dental woes continues and today was another round in the chair (only 1 shot on the pain-o-meter & 15 minutes of nitrous).

My favorite snacks while knitting at home are those that are easy to eat, like the Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers pictured below. I can even lean over and suck one in like a little vacuum so as not to break my knitting stride or mess my fingers.

The night before we attended the luminaria Ceremony of Hope which kicks off with a group of survivors walking a lap lined with candlelit (or, in our case, glow sticks)luminarias; each one bearing the name in honor of cancer survivors or in memory of loved ones.

Ok, this is where I had planned to post my mystery stole update. But today, after hours and hours (did I say hours?) I finished Clue 3 and felt so good about it I took a few photographs. But after I loaded the photographs I noticed so many errors I wanted to cry. Silly huh? Well, I thought about just knitting on but I knew the mistakes would plague me forever so I ripped it off and tossed it in the garbage.

Our LYS is spending Wednesday nights this August knitting bears for the Mother Bear Project. This is a good reminder when I need to remember there are starving kitties in Iraq. (See Bezzie's post from ...)
Sept ? 2007
I signed up for a webring called Blogstalking 2: The Reawakening and, frankly I'm relieved since my blog was about to be awarded the Your Blog Sucks Girl Blogger award.

Cpurl's Mom (while waiting for a table at a Japanese restaurant): What are you working on?Cpurl: It's a sleeve--see? (cpurl puts it on her wrist)Cpurl's Mom: "Won't that make you look bulky?"The truth hurts.

This has nothing to do with old photos, but a few weeks ago I was out with Muggle friends K & J and, I swear this is true, a happy face appeared in our pizza

So there you have it. I've suffered a fate equal to landing in an insane asylum or being homeless.
But, at the end of the movie, Clarence leave a note for George that says "Remember no (wo)man is a failure who has friends."
It this regard, I have indeed, a Wonderful Life.
Knitting wise, I'm too lazy to do a photo collage but here's my year's worth of knitted work:
Golf Club covers=3
*knit for charity projects
Not as productive as I would have liked but more than I thought.
Next year's resolutions:
2.Get Organized-clear out clutter
3.Participate in Project 365/52
I've even set up a blog to post my photos on a weekly basis: Cpurl's Project 365
I'm full of year end good intentions and I'm sure this is going to be harder to keep up with than I think , but I hope it will be a fun way to make sure I add a dose of creativity to every day. What I suspect is that I'll end up of 365 photos of yarn + cats.
I leave you with my favorite photos of the year:
