I could do a 2008 summing up post, as it is the 31st of December, but its not really my thing. I am currently working on a second page for the blog which will sum up a lot of what I have shared with you this year but that will have to wait another couple of weeks.
So, on to 2009.
I have many projects up my sleeve, or should I say in my stash, for 2009. Summer is just really getting started for us here in New Zealand but if I started a summer garment now I would never finish it before the chill of late March. Plus, I have recently assessed my clothing and came to the conclusion that I am not in need of any more knitted garments, therefore winter accessories will feature frequently on my WIPs page at Raverly this coming year. There are a few pluses to the accessories thing:
- Stash busting. The stash is fast becoming unruly and starting to encroach upon Lossy more then he knows.
- Speed. Most of what I will be knitting will be pretty fast off the needles which leads to point 3.
- Lots of finished FOs (finished objects).
- And maybe even lots of gifts for next christmas all sorted nice and early.
I of course have the Winter Twilight Mitts all lined up and sitting in my knitting box. These will be my first project I cast on in 2009 after I finish the Pfeiffer Falls Hooded Scarf, which I will quickly add, I grafted the two haves together today with the help of Mum. The second project I’m pretty sure I will be casting on is the Kusha Kusha Scarf made with a blend of fiber I find very interesting silk & stainless steel. I was super excited when I found I could by the Habu Textieles yarns here in Auckland from South Seas Knitting, now i just have to give Mel a call in the new year and see if I can arrange a time to visit to pick out what colours to use. Coincidentally on linking to slipslipknit I see that today she has just posted that this is her most popular yarn.
I wish you a happy and safe new year celebration and will see you in the new year, I’m off to bed.
