Off and On 2011
There is a classic New Years superstition that what you do the first day sets the tone for the rest of the year. So I planned carefully and finished/bound off this pair of Fetching for a tiny coworker (no fat = ALWAYS cold). The yarn is Caron Simply Soft, and perfect for this dynamo's lifestyle, but as a knitter - YUCK! It's a squeaky yarn, so each cable row literally set my teeth on edge with the sound. Good thing there were so few rows of cable, or this might have been the little project that didn't.
Spencer Hill Dyeworks (seriously, look at that gorgeous Saxon Green!
introduced me to a new New Years Day Tradition...selfish casting on. You cast on something for YOU. You don't have to go all monogamously weird with it, but you cast it on. So I have joined the literally tens of thousands who have attempted Monkeys. It's Lorna's Laces Sock in Amy's Vintage Office. We'll see where this leads.
And to my friend who sent me the adorable card which read "2010 - be gone you B-stard!" May 2011 be SO MUCH better. Actually, that goes for all of you, may 2011 be a good year for you.
