Oh That 2007', It Was a Very Square Year...


Over the past few weeks I've read the posts of Lolly, Shameka, Kessa, Peacock Chic, and Knit Lit and other blogs regarding their FO's, learned techniques/stitches and more for knit year 2007. I am impressed and in awe at all of the accomplishments being done by fellow knitters. I have vowed to make 2008 a more knit-industrious year for myself. I will gently push, push, push to knit more. Enough with all of the square knitting of 2007. I plan to get back into more of the tedious projects that I use to take on years ago. I will however, sneak in the occasional square/rectangle, you know, a scarf, a wrap and my beloved ponchos.






I knitted a gaggle of scarves, a few wraps, one cabled poncho and my son's cabled sweater (pictures I have yet to pick up. Next week, I promise).


In regards to what I've been working on;

I have just a little more seaming to do on my peach mohair sweater (This is my first FO 2008'). I will be posting those pictures along with my holiday pictures (yeah, I know, I'm late, very late), next week.


So this has been my synopsis for Carolyn's 2007 Year of Knitting. Now everyone, watch me work !!!

Carolyn, that peach sweater is to die for! I love the color. I also think your button band finishing is top-notch.

I know, it's amazing how so many of us want to branch out & do more. I LOVE that peach mohair--it's a gorgeous color that you don't see that often.
