Instead of setting up New Year’s Resolutions this year, I gave myself 3 New Year’s Challenges.
1. Bake something new each month.
2. Finish a knit/crochet project each month
3. Read all the books in my designated reading challenges.
Well, I haven’t quite figured out how to divide my time fairly between the three areas, as well as family, friends and work.
Unfortunately, my reading has taken a slight step to the wayside as I’ve been baking and knitting like a demon this past month. I did manage to finish 4 books (albeit I started one in December).
You may see my reviewing more cookbooks and craft books this coming year. I teach a knitting/crochet class at the library on Saturdays, so I’m always brushing up on new techniques and good books for beginners to learn from.
This book I am particularly fond of picking through this month.
Twinkle’s Big City Knits by Wenlan Chia. My main attraction to this book is that a large number of Chia’s knits are produced and sold in Anthropologie stores!
I’ll be posting a couple reviews for 2 mystery books next week, Club Dead by Charlaine Harris and On What Grounds by Cleo Coyle. Both very good, fun and quick reads! Mystery books are so addicting!
