A Life of It’s Own

So, I’ve been flying under the radar a lot in the past few months. A lot of stuff going on at home that’s kept me from knitting, much less blogging about it. But I have been knitting again and I’m going to start talking about it again. In fact, I finished a pile of little striped hats for some friends recently and I just finished a Clapotis and Cap that are destined to be a gift for my sister-in-law.

Speaking of which, I poke at my site statistics from time to time and I’m amazed at how much traffic my Clapotis Cap pattern gets. I don’t know where you all come from. I know it’s linked to at a few free pattern sites and I know that some of you talk about it on your blogs and on mailing lists or other knitting forums. But it’s like the Energizer Bunny, it just keeps going and going. And I’m so flattered that you all love it so much. And even more so that you like it so much that some of you subscribe to my blog even though I haven’t posted in ages. I’ve seen examples of your caps here and there and they all look wonderful. I’m glad you’re enjoying it.

So, expect photos of my recent hats and new Clapotis set soon. And a little deviation to the cross-stitch ornaments I’m making this year. But I promise more knitting and posting for 2006. And a site redesign (I just installed WordPress, so freedom from Blogger!).

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. However imagine if you added some great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could certainly be one of the very best in its field. Amazing blog!

    Sometimes it can seem like it’s impossible to reach your weight loss goals. It is easy to be motivated when you first start you routine, but as time passes you may lose interest. How do people stay motivated to lose weight and stay thin? Which methods do they use to accomplish this? You should first determine what your weight loss goals are. Is it your desire to wear clothes in a specific size? Do you have a weight in mind which you would like to achieve? Is your goal to simply get in shape and live a healthier life? Consider keeping a weight loss journal. It is easy; all you have to do is log everything you consume in a day and also jot down the weight you lose. After you have written everything down, look over what you have eaten and plan accordingly. If you don’t nip hunger in the bud, you’re far more likely to make bad food choices as your hunger takes over. When you’re out, you need to pack some healthy foods to take with you to avoid this trouble. Packing lunches to eat while at the office or at school makes far more sense than dining out. Packing a healthy lunch helps you avoid the temptation of high-calorie fast food. Preparing your own food is cheaper than eating out, so you can save calories as well as money. An ideal weight loss plan is to combine a healthy diet with a suitable exercise routine. In order to gain needed energy, you will need to make time for regular exercise each week. If you find it difficult to stick to a standard exercise schedule, another option is to look for an enjoyable physical activity that you can regularly commit time to. Get together with your friends for walking, swimming, hiking or cycling. Join a dance class together to have fun and learn something new while getting in shape. Get rid of junk food from anywhere you spend a significant amount of time, including work. It may seem drastic, but if it isn’t available, then you can’t eat it. Stock your home, office and other locations where you might eat, with a variety of healthful food selections. Have fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts handy for when you feel like snacking. Look towards your friends for moral support when you decide to lose weight. It is advised to set up a support systems of friends and family to help keep you in line during times of stress while trying to lose weight. They can be a treasure to your emotional well being when you feel like quitting. When you do not have the motivation to keep going, you should call your support system and talk about it.

    I believe that a foreclosures can have a important effect on the client’s life. Property foreclosures can have a 7 to 10 years negative effect on a applicant’s credit report. A new borrower that has applied for a home loan or virtually any loans as an example, knows that the particular worse credit rating is usually, the more complicated it is for any decent bank loan. In addition, it may possibly affect a borrower’s chance to find a decent place to lease or rent, if that gets the alternative real estate solution. Great blog post.

    I’ve come across that now, more and more people will be attracted to cameras and the industry of images. However, being a photographer, you will need to first devote so much period deciding the exact model of digital camera to buy as well as moving store to store just so you can buy the cheapest camera of the brand you have decided to pick. But it won’t end just there. You also have to contemplate whether you can purchase a digital dslr camera extended warranty. Thanks a lot for the good ideas I acquired from your website.

    I have figured out some new things from your web site about personal computers. Another thing I have always thought is that computer systems have become a specific thing that each family must have for some reasons. They provide convenient ways in which to organize the home, pay bills, go shopping, study, pay attention to music as well as watch television shows. An innovative technique to complete most of these tasks is with a mobile computer. These desktops are portable ones, small, strong and mobile.
