Hee hee... I know it's already mid month but it's always better late than never! HAPPY NEW YEAR and may all your New Year's resolutions be successful.
One of my NY resolutions is to knit more and blog more (gosh, the postings have dwindled since my job). I have picked up the needles and since I felt SUPER lazy, I've just been working with bulky yarn (for now). Here's some finished items:
1) Rowan Ribbon Twist Beret and Scarf - From Rowan Ribbon Twist Collection, I knitted Mercy (the beret) and Casey (the scarf with bobbles). I love it... it's unique, the yarn is soooo soft and using 8mm, 12mm and 15mm makes the projects fast fast fast. (p.s. bear bear is modeling on my new couch in front of the walls I newly painted in blue *smile*)
2) Last year, I knitted a skinny scarf with Rowan Biggy Print. Using 20mm needles (6 stitches), the scarf looked fine but after a day of wear, it sagged and went past my knees!!! So, I reknit it using 15mm needles with 7 stitches and now it's perfect (no picture, it looks the same).
3) Last year, I knitted a mini capelet, also with Rowan Biggy Print. So resistably cute but oh so impractical for Toronto winters. I tore it apart and turned it into a warm cap (Flip from Rowan Big Easy).
Home decor cushions are still in progress... sister's socks are still in progress... Hope to fit in an update before Chinese New Year!
