The year so far....

December 31st I made several resolutions regarding my knitting. More than a month later this is my progress.

It took me less than a month to break knitting resolution #1. Sometimes I just can’t seem to help myself. I wondered if it would be a good idea to do a modular scarf in such a lightweight yarn but seeing the Modern Quilt Wrap showed me it could be done. The scarf doesn’t seem to use up much yarn and it is a great way to use up partial skeins of KSH.


















I did manage to fulfill one part of knitting resolution #2. I finished a project that I had started the previous year. It is a small project but baby steps aren’t a bad thing.

Pro: I finally frogged and re-knit the top portion of my pink Fake Isle hat. Yay!
Con: The new looser gauge I knit at left the hat so big that I have to fold up the brim. Boo!
I refuse to try to untangle all that stranded knitting so I’m choosing to leave the hat as is. It doesn’t look too bad this way.
















Knitting resolution #3 took a hit with my recent sock yarn sale purchases.









In other knitting news….

I finally took the crochet cast on off and completed the beaded picot bind off . What kept putting me off was the fear of having completed all that beaded lace work only to drop a stitch and mess up what I had accomplished. I finally went through with it and the results are fantastic.








As usual Noro has produced a delightfully colorful yarn. Unfortunately this stuff gets twisted and tangled pretty easily. It’s not the most touchable yarn either. However it did soften up a bit when I washed it., especially once I added a bit of fabric softener to the soak. I can’t wait to have a sister sock for this one. It may take a bit longer since I want to try and match up the color stripes. One ball of this stuff goes a long way and if I wasn’t so concerned with matching the stripes I would probably have enough yarn left over from this skein to finish the second sock.

    Lovely Ice Queen, and the hat will be handy when your ears get cold.

    I'm currently using the Noro sock yarn, and I couldn't agree more. Feels ooky to knit with, it twists like crazy, but the colors are incredible.
