So nice to put yarn on a new pair of needles. This year I am determined to set some knitting goals for 2012!
I am starting with a hat for myself but this year but I would like to break new ground - so in no particular order -
Knitting goals 2012!
Some kind of patterned something - I am eyeing the mittens in the book, Folk Mittens, you see above that I just borrowed from the library - might be a little too scary for my next project though, we'll see.
Knit a vest - a simple boy's vest (maybe two, I do have two boys).
Learn to use circular needles.
Knit a shrug for my teen girls (there are two of them too!)
Some kind of shawl for me.
Attempt to learn a cable stitch.
And if I really get brave - a sweater for hubby.
Ambitious? Doable? At this point I have no idea but it's always good to have a plan, right?
As far as reading goes, I am enjoying my new Kindle Fire, I feel so *current*, you know up-to-date. I NEVER feel like that. It's weird. But on my Kindle I am reading "The Man Who Was Thursday, a nightmare" by G.K. Chesterton. So far so good. I am still learning the ins and outs of downloading things but I really like it so far. I can also sit, all warm and cozy with a cup of tea and read my favorite blogs - like the Yarn Along at Small Things with Ginny!
