New Things

I am very excited to announce that I am going to be hosting a Sock Club at my LYS, Main Street Yarns. It will start Jan 29 and then be the Second and Last Saturday of the month.

I am designing a sock for the store. I hope to have pictures later in the week. We will be reviewing techniques each club meeting. The techniques will include things like cast ons, kitchner, cables, lace, heels, toes and any other knitting and/or sock related technique we can think of. I will cover one idea each meeting. I will also be available to help any sock knitter with their current sock.

This and other designs have kept me busy the first few weeks of the year. There will soon be pictures.

End of the year

I finished quite a lot toward the end of December. Here is what I finished then.

A shawl/wrap for my daughter. Lonicera by Kirsten Kapur.

A pair of socks, Holidazed by Ann Hanson

An Adipose, for my son's friend. We are all huge Dr. Who fans.

An Encompass cowl by the Yarn Harlot for me.

I finished a scarf I started over a year ago for my nephew. He really loves it.

I also did a scarf for my mother. The yarn has been around for almost two years.

I designed a pair of gloves from Hazel Knits yarn. I call them Art Deco gloves. I hope to have a pattern out soon.

And a pair of thrummed mittens for my daughter. To keep her warm.

Not to mention the Aragorn pattern.

And another sock pattern I designed. It is called Snarled. I still have to write it up.

My totals for the year are:
Socks 23 pairs plus two singles
Cowls 6
Scarves 2
Gloves 2
Shawls 2
Toys 2
Hat 1
Fingerless gloves 1

I also had some serious stash enhancement in December. I will have to talk about that another time.
