Happy New Year!
We have been having glorious weather here in the Bay Area. I know we need the rain but the warm sun feels wonderful. I've been told that so many "blue sky days" can be overwhelming to people from other parts of the country. As a native Californian, I wonder if they were joking. Who could get tired of views like this?
I've got a couple of knitterly goals for 2015:
- Knit every single day -You can follow the bits and pieces on instagram ( cheekyattitude) and follow the tag: #knit365. I'm completely relaxed about it, I have given myself permission to just knit a few stitches and it will totally count. Will anyone join me? I'd love to have company. There are a number of #yearofmaking people. But I'd like to concentrate on knitting.
- Organize the stash - I wrote about it last time and dove into the piles but know there are skeins in places (back of the closet... etc.) I haven't discovered yet. I have been following Rachel Herron's journey as inspiration. (That counts as moving forward, right?) Maybe I should post pictures of the mess as public shaming to kick my bottom into gear.
The yarn is Malabrigo Worsted from the aforementioned stash. Sooo soft and lofty. I stop to pet it quite a bit.
The seed stitches in the center have to be my favorite element, I just love how they pop.
By the way, the Sorin Fingerless Glove pattern is the pattern for January and on sale for 4.75.
And it is "selfish knitting" time! Join the knit-a-long in the Ravelry Group and knit yourself something pretty.
