social loose ends
I don't know why I don't wear this sweater more. I found it in the weird section of the Goodwill where they bunch bathing suits and coverups, and kitted ponchos with other miscellaneous things. Its hand knitted I am pretty sure and maybe the maker didn't think the proportions were right or something, but I think it is 100% spot on perfection! Its my fantasy sweater incarnate! Perfect over a fitted silhouette, or with a slouchy tee shirt and jeans. and it is so warm. I can't believe this is the first time I have worn it this winter!
As far as new years resolutions go, I know what I am going to do. I have a bunch of social loose ends. Friends I have failed to communicate with, grandmas I need to update, people I failed to send christmas cards to (everyone this year) Cousins who's weddings I missed, the list goes on and on. And I painfully remember each person I have failed. and it eats me up inside. SO, 52 weeks in a year, 52 cards in a deck, 52 letters to write, BY HAND. I am going to write the names of 52 people who need a letter on a playing card from a deck, shuffle the deck each week, and hand write and send that person a letter. Trust me, this is something I have been NEEDING to do. For some people for YEARS, maybe Decades. There are probably more than 52 people even. this is the hardest thing i have ever chosen for myself. i just have to let go of the weight.
