The Christmas festivities are over, the new year seen in and now I suppose it’s time to set out New Year Resolutions and all that.
I was just looking back through my bloggin’ archive and dug up last years resolutions and funnily enough I did keep them.
What did surprise me was that I have come a long way in my knitting life in just a year.
I’m also still knitting Big J’s jumper, although it has changed pattern and colour since!
I bought some cheapish yarn the other day, it’s Marble Chunky by James C Brett, 100% acrylic,
and while you’re all groaning, I am allergic to wool, and while small projects don’t bother me so much, large one’s, such as J’s jumper left me in a considerable amount of discomfort, sore hands and sneezing.
So, this one is loosely based on this pattern and is knitting up pretty quickly and I’m hoping to have it finished by the end of the month.
I also bought some Merino to knit my sister a lacy bolero/cardigan/shrug type thing.
Which brings me back to resolutions.
1: Finish projects before starting another. I’m not going to have as much knitting time as I used to, so this will be important if I want to finish anything this year!
2: Knit something for Ollie and Dylan, the girls seem to get everything.
what are your knitty plans?
Without getting to soppy, I would just like to say thank you to you all who read and comment on my blog, for the inspiration and encouragement, for the laughs and friendship. It’s a wonderful community I have found myself in and long may it last.
Finally, I leave you with a photo of Ollie, who was sneaking a little play with the decorations on the tree…
