Ok first of all....
Happy New Year, Everyone!
Since everyone seems to be posting their resolutions I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and do the same. So here are my big Knitting/Blogging Resolutions for 2008:
1.) Finish blogging my Peru trip.
2.) Learn how to knit stranded colorwork without being completely freaked out by it
3.) Design more patterns possibly even a sweater
4.) Speaking of sweaters…dust off and finish Matt’s Durrow.
5.) Take more in progress pictures and not always just pics of finished things
6.) Spin something other than 2 ply
7.) Learn how to spin silk (I got a whole bunch of silk top for Christmas)
8.) Update the 100 things about me list from 2005 that is super outdated.
There you have it. Pretty simple, right? No pressure or anything. Just some goals for the next year….
Oh and just so that this post isn’t completely photo free here’s a pic of another one of my holiday knits:
Striped Slipper Socks from Knit One Felt Too knit out of random worsted wool yarn from my grandma and some blue Patons Classic Merino on size 11 needles. I followed the pattern exactly except that I threw in a few extra rounds to the length.
These were knit at the very last second for my brother for Christmas b/c I heard from his girlfriend that he wore holes in his last pair. Clearly he needed a new one and clearly these can be knit in very little time. Perfect last minute gift. Although he was confused as to why they were wet when he opened them… For the record felting something the day you have to gift it isn’t the best of plans. But when you’re a serial procrastinator like I am sometimes it’s the only option….
I hope everyone had a fun, safe New Years Eve!
