And we're off to the races on our 2007 knits! I'd put aside my tweed because I had become seriously frustrated before christmas but with three months left in the KAL and nothing to show I figured I'd better buck up and start knitting. The pattern wasn't matching up with the previous rows when I knit before and even with ripping and redoing I still couldn't get it right. Then the thought came into my head that I just need to use stitch markers DUH! I only make and sell the things :) Anyway I'm on the right track now and I'm boogin right along. There are 8 different patterns in one row so its slow going but I'm almost finished two diamond and before christmas I didn't have a diamond even started! The picture is of the back piece, I'm about 9 inchs along and if I didn't have to go to dang work tonight it might be another 9 :)
If you have something tweedy in your stash you'd like to use up, come on over and join the KAL, we'd love to see what your knitting.
There are several different projects I would like to dig into but I'm going to force myself to be a good knitter this year and only have two things on the needles at once. One being a sock and the other my main project. I will not start anything else until I get the main project done or finish the sock and then I can start another.
As you can see None of my WIP's that I was SUPPOSEDLY going to finish up before christmas got done so they will stay right where they are for the time being. I'm thinking about knitting the main project and then go back to an ufo and finish that before I start a new one but we'll see. There are sooo many beautiful patterns perking up here there and everywhere its going to be hard to just be knitting one at once.
I'm planning on making some larger items for myself this year. The largest thing I did last year was my OSW. I think a few sweaters are long overdue in the Celtic household.
Until next time.... Tweed ya later!
