Happy New Year!


Wow! Where to start? It seems like forever since I read, commented or wrote on any blogs. I hope all of you had a wonderful holiday and got lots of knitting done or gifted. I am still on holiday and it’s been great to get a few little projects, KAL’s, and requests wrapped up.

Although I still have a sewing room crammed to the rafters with yarn, I will not be making any resolutions about not buying yarn, or only working on WIP’s. I know myself too well. I will make a concerted effort to get back to my formerly athletic self – note to inner toddler – this is not a resolution.

I can show you a picture of my wonderful Christmas present, a Namaste bag from Scout, my custom dyed skein is shown with it, this for a new pattern I’m working out on paper. Two of my sock clubs delivered within a day or two of Christmas day and both are so beautiful! One club is ending in a few months, so I’ve signed on for the “Rockin’ Sock Club 2007”. Last year’s version had some fabulous patterns and yarns – I’m really excited to see what this year brings.

I managed to finish up some of the items I blogged about before Christmas, but ran out of yarn for one of them – more is on the way, thankfully. It was an “Indie” yarn and I was worried it couldn’t be duplicated, but the wonderful gals at RubySapphire have come through :).

The photo above is the first FO of 2007 – cabled muffatees for DD. She liked the yarn I was using for a (still) secrect project and I made these to her design specifications with the leftovers.

Hmm-m-mm…. What else? Turkey’s all gone, yay! I don’t think I can look at turkey for another year. Received a white box late last week and am working out a pattern for a sweater (that I may even finish) in Elann Uros Aran – beautiful yarn.

The FO’s:

And now I can be totally stylish when I “KIP”

Merry Christmas To Me
