Hello everyone and Happy New Year to all of you ! I will not say 2012 was a quick year but December was certainly a speedy month. It was for me anyway and this may have been because I worked so much. I actually worked Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Years Eve and New Years. It’s not as bad as it sounds because I work midnight shifts.
I completed the cowl and hat I’d made for my son for his trip. Everything has been packaged, sent and received. The cowl was completed in December but the hat I finished the beginning of January sooooo, my son’s hat is my first FO for 2013.
The yarn is Lion Brand Wool Ease, which I love for him because it’s machine wash and dry. There is no pattern because I just cast on and knit what I thought he would like. Always something simple.
My Mother’s birthday is in May and I would like to get a head start on a project for her. I’m thinking of a shawl or sweater. Before I begin a project for her, I have a friend in Michigan that wants a hat and cowl. She saw my daughter modeling this one and wants one for herself. Okay, no problem.
I would really like to knit a few things that are more significant than the hats and cowls I’ve been working on. Oh, if I could just fit in one sweater this year that would be great. Please ! I know I am a very busy person but that shouldn’t stop me from taking my knitting up a level.
I’d like to have another knitting contest also. I am putting some things together already. Contests are always fun for the giver and the receiver !
