2009 snuck up on me. Seems like I was just enjoying a little bit of time off over the holidays and now January is more than half over.
I've had some finished objects that I've been waiting to show you. I hope to get "real" pictures later, but these will have to do for now:
This is the Fake Isle Hat (Ravelry link). I used one skein of Noro Kureyon and some leftover Cascade 220. It looks much better in person. It is so cold outside, I think the bright colors help.
This one is called Wham Bam, Thank you Lamb (Ravelry link). It is such a "quickie" and the way it is put together is very clever. Genius, really. Just knit in garter stitch like you're knitting a wide scarf until it's long enough to wrap around your neck and join together starting in the middle of each end so you have a corner that folds over. Use bulky or super bulky yarn.
I hope your new year is going very well and your resolutions haven't been broken.
ps. Dad, your socks are done. :-)
