I knit the son this great hat for Christmas. He LOVES it! (what's not to love)
In fact he loved it so much he put it in with his dirty clothes and YEP!!!
It got washed........ (poop)
So I knit a ton of shawls this year. Well maybe not a ton, but 6. Then I knit a couple of little shawlette's. I designed a couple of patterns (more to come this year!!) made a lot of hats and did a lot of spinning!
I am not really good about making and keeping New Year's resolutions. I see a lot of people are not going to buy so much yarn and knit from their stash. Which is good, but I am not going to promise that. No way. If I see something pretty, well.... I gotta have it.
I am going to try a new technique with my spinning or knitting. I don't know what it will be yet but I am going to try it. Perhaps short row heels on socks and navajo plying???
I need to make a sweater or 2 this year. That is a must. More socks can't hurt either. Shawls will just be a given.
I am also going to try and master fairisle knitting. I have a new book I got for Christmas "Norwegian Handknits" and it has some truly beautiful things in it. I want to make just about all I see in the book. But I think I may stick to mittens and a hat.
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and here's to a new decade!
