I finished the knitting before the new year, even if I didn’t get the ends woven in and the blocking done. So it’s a 2008 FO.
For whatever reason my color is really washed out and I’m not up for fixing it tonight.
It kind of reminds me of the Snail Trail quilt pattern, in how the swirls intersect with other swirls and form secondary patterns. It is very long, and not terribly wide. When I do the next class I may suggest people tweak the number of rows and the length.
We had a quiet New Year’s Eve here. The kids spent the evening like they usually do.
And since we expected a little noise and some firecrackers at midnight, they go to sleep in the house. We chose to made out the sleeper so there would be a little more room.
You see who was still smooshed over to the edge, even on a queen.
I just have a couple of smallish resolutions this year. One is to get back in the gym habit. At least three days per week, no excuses. Not even the shoulder. The other – and I can already hear the laughter – is I’m going to try the Only-Allowed-To-Buy-One-Half-The-Amount-Of-Yarn-You’ve-Used-From-Stash plan. If I use 800 yards from stash, I can buy 400. I know better than to include books in this idea. And special requests (like Tim’s for some slippers) are exempt.
Anyone else going to try some silly sort of resolution?
