People are starting to get the word: I like knitting. Give me a knitting-related gift and I will love it. Consequently, I was a lucky knitter this Christmas.
A Schrodinger Cube! I really loved this print and it’s even nicer in person. My only complaint is that it’s a wee thing and most of my DPNs don’t quite fit in it.
Some lovely Dream in Colour Smooshy in the gorgeous Dusky Aurora colour.
The much coveted sheepy Converses! I can’t wait to wear them. Hurry up spring!
And from Erin:
The Little Knitter from The Black Apple, of course.
So I promised some resolutions. Last year I vowed to master stranded knitting and knit as many sweaters and socks as I could and I succeeded. Every year I had a knitting technique I had chickened out on but wanted to conquer but now I feel there’s not much to overcome. Having said that, there’s always so much to learn and do. 2008 will be the year of:
Sewing lots more of my own clothes and avoiding the mall as much as possible.
Learning more about sewing techniques and fabrics.
Being more laid back about my crafting and not being my own task master. I have to remember to enjoy myself and what I loved about knitting to begin with (being creative, connecting with tradition).
Being less critical of myself and celebrating my talents.
Stash management. Not a yarn diet, just being a little less crazed with the credit card and the internets.
Take my time with projects and make sure to add length!
That’s all that comes to mind right now. I’d love to hear any of your resolutions!
