This lacey leaf capelet (left) reminds me of my all time favorite Alexander McQueen runway look (right) .
It's no surprise to me that this is one of my all time favorite Vogue Knits designs. Being a new yaer and all I think it is time for me to give it a go. but should I make a ponchshawl, or blow it up in tribute to the late great designer? I have some Patons Lace in black and also in beige.... Which should I make this in?

Resolutions: 2012

I haven't blogged much at all this year. I could resolve to blog more, but that would be tempting fate. If I can achieve even 2 of my goals below, I think I'll be satisfied.

1) Take it slower. Don’t try to accomplish as much. Quality over quantity.

2) Finish what I start. Also what I have already started. Conquer the UFOs.

3) Document my projects; if for no other reason than to have a record of what and when I started something. Figure out a way to get acceptable self portraits (very important).

4) Exercise more. Go to Yoga and Spin.

5) Read more books.

6) Sleep more. Go to bed a little earlier.

7) Call my friends and family more often. Be a nicer person.
