Tonight I'm finally blogging. I should be sleeping but I cut my finger and I can't sleep with band-aides and I don't want to end up with blood on my bed covers so here I am... Bleeding on my keyboard. Not really.
So I did make some Knitting Plans for 2011. I actually "swapped" 12 yarns with Ronni this year. At the
|Ronni's 11 Yarns|
Waiting to Be Returned to her and turned into socks
My first pair of socks (for the month of January) are Janel Laidman's Peacock socks using my yatn I actually bought on my trip to Connecticut to meet Ronni in person. It's Ellyn Cooper's Yarn Sonnets Fine Merino in Diva. I am totally in love with the colors in the yarn... The picture that shows real progress is crap for showing the colors off. But it's from my iPhone in my crappy bedroom lighting. I've made pretty good progress considering I've not really knit all that much this month. I've mostly come home from work and gone straight to bed. My "start" picture shows the colors off much better.
So far this has been a really simple sock. The heel construction is something that I've never done before so I'll see how that goes. Hopefully it goes swimmingly. AND hopefully I finish in 11 days.
I've tagged the projects I'm making for our "sock club" with the same tag as the yarns. Or at least I plan too. I've only got one project up so far.
My first sweater is almost finished! All I have left to do for the Shalom Cardigan is the bottom edging. Weaving in ends and finding a button. I had hoped I'd finish Monday ... But that got pushed to Tuesday night. Then that got pushed to tonight. Then I decided I was tired and cut my finger and decided that tomorrow was definitely the finishing day.
The sweater looks a little tiny when I lay it on the bed like that. But it's pretty on par with my other shirts, and it fits when I try it on, so my conclusion is that I'm a tiny person. :) I'm very excited about finishing a sweater. Even if it's all one piece and a really easy cardigan. I've got plans for at least 2 more sweaters that I hope to do this year as well.
I'm off now. My finger has quit bleeding and I am very tired.
