First FO of 2009!

I got my second SP13 package this week! More fabulous sock yarn! I love the colors in these, and can't wait to cast on a pair of socks with them. Last weekend I picked up a kit with a Cat Bordhi sock pattern that I think this yarn will look great in. And, there should be enough of the darker color left to make some matching hand warmers. Along with the yarn there was a dpn holder and a book. Some of the cartoons in this book crack me up (like the one on the cover). Definitely worth picking up if you like knitting humor. If you're reading this SP, THANK YOU!!

I spent a lot of time this weekend working on Solo. The body is almost complete, and should be so if I have enough time to work on it tomorrow night after bellydance class. I'm still not tired of knitting on this, but boy am I tired of blogging about it. I'm going to put a lot of effort into finishing it this next week so I can pull out some other projects to work on.

I'm into the hand section of the second of Emily's gloves. I'm a bit gloved out now, so I think I'll hold off casting on a pair of these for me until later in the year. I'm itching to cast on some socks now.

I finished Jenn's gloves this week and she's very happy with them. If I'm not mistaken, my pair of these were the first FO for 2008, so it's only fitting that hers are the first FO for 2009.

I've done really well so far sticking to my plan to get all my WIPs finished up, but this method isn't doing my blog any favors. There's just only so much you can say, and so many photos you can show of the same projects over and over. If I'm bored with them, then I'm sure that anyone who reads this is just as bored. I may have to adjust my "rules" a bit and allow myself to add a new project if I finish one of the secondary projects. We'll see.


  1. Those gloves are dynamite! What a perfect SP13 package. I've had my eye on the "It Itches" book for a while, now.
