So I've decided on what to start knitting.... here's a preview of what's on my needles for the start of 2008. First off I had already knit one 'Fetching' fingerless glove in this dark blue color (before Christmas). The other day I cast on for the second glove and it took literally just a few hours and it was complete. I love quick knits like that :-)
For Christmas I got this Lucinda Guy knitting book from my inlaws (as well as her other kid's bedtime book). I've decided to knit the wildflower sweater.
This is done in Rowan 4ply soft, only I couldn't get that at my LYS so I opted for a 4ply cotton yarn of the same gauge.
And finally, I also cast on for Bobbi's Chicabean Scarf. The yarn I'm using is just an acrylic/wool mix. It's pretty soft so it should be nice to wear. I'm planning on doing the matching hat too.
All of these knits are intended Christmas (2008) gifts, but I won't say who they are intended for ;-)
We'll be staying home tonight and celebrating the new year quietly. Our neighbors canceled their new years eve bash cos their 10 year old has the flu so we won't be going next door to hang out.
Here's wishing you all a very Happy, Healthy and safe New Year.
