Completed in this New Year:
One scarf made of ribbon yarn, a project that was great fun. The colorway was “Copper Penny;” it stayed behind on the Gulf Coast.
One scarf made of Mode Dea Ticker Tape, in the “Monet” colorway. This one I carried on the plane home and hung around The Princess’ neck soon after I got home.
On the needles:
One prayer shawl — about a third complete
One baby blanket — at least halfway there, perhaps two-thirds (I’d show you a picture, but it’s for someone we know…)
One Lenten stole, a gift for a friend — the stole is finished, but I am trying to somehow embroider a cross on each end, something I haven’t tried before. It wasn’t a good pattern for carrying yarn behind. (ditto, pictures later)
On my mind:
The Knitting Olympics — I’m finally going to attempt a Clapotis. I bought some lovely yarn at Quarterstitch in New Orleans, and this is the way I want to use it…I think.
Sockapalooza — I’m a rank beginner at sock knitting. I have made one pair, and they didn’t come out well. This will be a challenge!
A sleeveless turtleneck to wear under my new and fabulous jacket, purchased in Mississippi; yarn yet to be purchased.
What’s on your knitting/crafting mind?
