Wow! How did it get to be 2013? Life just continues to fly by, doesn’t it?
I haven’t even looked at what I completed for projects in 2012. In fact, I’m guessing my completed projects page is hopelessly incomplete. Maybe I’ll fix it today, or maybe not!
I do have a couple of 2012 finishes to show you. First up is Sartorial. It was a three week mystery cowl from Star Athena. The yarn was De-Vine from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Yep! I got sucked in by Tina and her gorgeous yarn again.
I’m not in love with this cowl. I love the yarn and it was fun to knit, but I just don’t think I’ll wear it. Good thing I’m a process knitter.
This was a really quick scarf to knit up! It’s called Twist and Flounce. It’s knit with Plucky Bulky. I don’t remember what the color was called, and I’m too lazy to look for it. This one is being gifted to a mom that needs a hug. I really enjoy knitting a project for someone and taking that time to pray for them.
This finish makes me really happy. I love it!!! Introducing Fiar.
I think I’ll wait and do a better post on her once it’s off the floor in my bathroom. I’ve mentioned before that I love blocking finished projects. I’ve been trying to put my house back in order after the Christmas break, and every time I walked into my bathroom yesterday, this made me smile. It’s lined up so perfectly. It’s in order!!!
And…there’s something else blocking. I’ll do a detailed post on that soon as well.
For those of you that are wondering why I block stuff in my bathroom, I will tell you why. Two words. Heated floors. Stuff dries really quickly!
It looks to me like I need to knit something other than stuff that goes around my neck. I do wear a lot of this kind of thing, but I only have one neck. I’m getting old, but not old enough to grow my own turtleneck yet. (That was a book written by a Christian comedian, but it’s out of print.)
While I’m thinking about it, I’m going to make a list of stuff I’m going to blog about in the near future. That way I won’t forget.
1. One, possibly two, scrap quilts.
2. A sweater I dug out of the back of the drawer. I think I started it ten or twelve years ago.
3. A new pet in our house. Frankie is in heaven.
4. New spinning stuff.
5. How about a few new recipes I’ve tried that are yummy?
Anything else you want to hear about? I haven’t complained about laundry, although that’s the plan for tomorrow.
Tonight I’m feeding 25 kids, so I better get busy!!!
