Have been perusing Ravelry and adding patterns to my queue. COLOR seems to be my idee fixe this year; maybe its the long dark cold days – already Dec is colder than last year, we have had TWO snow falls this week– anyway, I have been wanting to move to more color knitting and something has CLICKED and away I go.
So lots of ideas – need to nail down my list (four sisters and mother and friends oh my!) and figure out what yarn I have and need.
BTW KRISTIN KNITS is a FABULOUS book for shaking you out of monochrome doldrums – tons of gorgeously hued projects and lots lots lots of ideas! That Fair Isle Cardigan is DEFINITEY a must knit for me in the New Year.
Ok off to run errands for the visiting Family Member and then on to Weekly Knitting Group.
