Hi! I had no intention of taking such a long blogging break and now I have a major backlog of things I want to share. We had a lovely Christmas spent with family. There was a small flurry of last minute knitting on my part to make my hubby a pair of Fuzzy Feet.
I love how quick these are. I knit the second one in a single day! However, now that we have a front loading washing machine, I've been unable to felt them to a perfect fit. I used Peace Fleece worsted in the Ancient Fern color. I don't felt things very often so if anyone has any tips to get them more felted I would appreciate it.
The next thing I finished was my Avery scarf. I have to admit I'm a tiny bit disappointed in this one. I should have known the yarn I used (Queensland Kathmandu Aran Tweed) would totally mask the stitch pattern. It's still a great scarf in a nice charcoal grey and I will wear it lots!
And just last week I cast on for a new project, Henslowe. I've been wanting to use this Lorna's Laces sock yarn that I won from Yarn Tootin' a while back. I just love the muted grays, browns and aquas together! I don't have a great history of finishing the shawls that I start but I have high hopes for this one, it starts off with some nice soothing garter stitch.
Can you believe it? A whole post on knitting! :)
I hope your year is off to a great start too!
