Thought that you would like to see my holiday haul of books. A couple were gifts, and the rest were purchased for 40-50% off at various sales.
My friend Robin suggested knitting two socks at a time on a circular needle. I might give that a try. Then I am on a mitten kick I love the Selbuvotter mittens. I have made several sets of very warm mittens and I don't have any for myself. The Knitted Jackets book has some great patterns, and I can always make a cabled sweater. I actually bought a couple of quilting theme books..
Here is my latest and last (for a while) pair of Fiddlehead mittens.
A new year is starting along with a whole lot of ideas for new projects. Maybe I will even do a quilt for competition. I just haven't been in the right frame of mind for a while. The competition is stiff, and I don't know that I am up to it. But it is fun to set a higher goal for myself. The wedding shawl will be the big thing. that will take a good deal of my time. I am actually going to try to finish up all of my quilt tops. Get them quilted and out of my way. Other than July 4th, I think New Years is my favorite holiday, a new start, which is a good thing.
