Well now that Christmas is over I'm eager to start knitting for Christmas 2008! I didn't knit many gifts this year, but I would like to do a lot more knitting for friends and family throughout the coming year and have some lovely 'pressies' ready for next December. Only two people got knitted gifts this year, my mom-in-law and my hubby's step-sister who came to visit from CA. Both gifts were the beautiful 'rainy day socks'. Mil's pair were the original pair I made in the greyish color... and the other pair was done in a lavender shade. Here's pics of the last pair I did.
So, my dilema tonight.... what to knit? I had told myself a few weeks ago that before I started anything new I should finish off what I already have on the needles - that being the Lotus Blossom top (still), a baby blanket and a shrug for Kristen. But I've poo-pooed that idea. I have to WANT to knit something, and if I don't want to knit a particular thing, then there's no fun in it at all. The shrug I started for Kristen has just been 'frogged'! The pattern wasn't making any sense at all so I've scrapped that and think I might cast on for a nice scarf with the yarn I was going to use.
I'm thinking of trying this gorgeous scarf from Bobbi
Thanks for sharing the pattern Bobbi. Ok, with that said I better jump off here and go cast on :-)
Happy New Year to you all.
