1.1.11

Happy New Year!!

Eleven is my favorite number (I was born on the 11th day of February, at 7:11 am, in '74...7+4 =11....I must have been a weird kid), so I just know 2011 is going to be a great year.

It started with a new infinity scarf to wear...

And wearing my Christmas gift bling :)

Pattern: Pont Neuf
Yarn: BMFA BFL colorway True Blood Red...one skein has already made 2 Pont Neuf's and the rest of the yarn will be making it into part of a 3rd!
Mods: went down a needle size and cast on 32 additional stitches

The first day of this new year was perfect too. Sleep. Exercise. Catching up with friends. Football. Family. Doggies. Movie. Snowboarder. Knitting. And a moment to blog.

Happy New Year!

This gets even lovelier the more I see it. The red suits you very well. And yay for your team winning. Are they in the same league as the University of Oregon Ducks? And *bluches* my Pont Neuf is hibernating....but will get around to it soon.

Happy New Year Carrie! Your Pont Neuf is just beautiful!

I just purchased your Winter Wonder pattern and was thinking about CO in Berroco Remix (for a no wool version).

It's absolutely beautiful!

I hadn't thought about the '11' in 2011, to be honest. I'm a Feb. 11 baby, too, and there are some weird 11 coincidences for me, too. (born at 1:12 p.m., AKA 2-11 backwards ... and in 83 ... 8+3 = 11!)

Lindsay said...

Such a beautiful color! The pattern has made it onto my list of 2011 knits.
