Most knitters like to close the old year with lots of FOs, ready to start the new year with new projects. Me? I'm just pleased to be not Christmas knitting, and I tend to relax over Christmas, and play with my yarn, which inevitably leads to new projects.
I started three easy projects.
The neckwarmer, in Alchemy's synchronicity
Look how frosty the ground is? This is early afternoon, on a sunny day (that lovely low winter sun). I've done all of the knitting now, just have to find a big button and then we'll have another FO.
This capelet from Louisa Harding's accessories book, using Impressions and the Sari Ribbon (those ends are part of the design, and won't be sewn in)
Three very easy, mindless projects, which I'll finish over the next few weeks.
We had an enjoyable couple of days with Chris's parents. I'd left the end dangling on his mum's scarf, as I wasn't sure how long to knit this. She asked me to knit it a bit longer, so I spent Tuesday evening knitting another skein.
We're off to spend the New Year in the stash flat (it's warmer!) so I won't be on the computer until next year - have a happy new year everyone, see you in 2006!
