Happy New Year everyone. I hope that everyone had a great holiday season. Now that its over for another year and the Christmas knitting is done, I have time to get back to knitting for myself and catch up on all my favorite podcasts. Although, I am pleased that that my Aunt & Uncle are enjoying the Tea Cosy that I had knit them. It was my first attempt at Faire Isle and it turned out nice.
I had also knit my cousin a scarf with Koigu.
My mother recieved a red scarf and beret knit out of Koigu along with a Multidirectional scarf knit with alpaca.
Then for my DBF, Michael, I knit my first pair of guy socks. I have knit other socks but never for anyone else. I learned that you need much more yarn for guys....DUH !
Last but not least, for my granddaughter Chloe, I knit the Crayon Sweater with King Cole, with a matching beret. I call it the Crayon Sweater because I used buttons that represented crayons. She also got the Pumpkin Hat & Strawberry hat.
Now with all that done.......I can breath a breath of satisfaction and relief and get on with my own UFO's and of course new projects.
I did finally finish the Jaywalkers http://magknits.com/Sept05/patterns/jaywalker.htm

I will be attending the Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat in Tacoma the last weekend in January. I will only be going to the Market Place since I can't get the time off from work. Blue Moon will be there. Must stock my stash with Socks that Rock.....
Hopefully in this year I will be able to keep up on this blog. Until we meet again, Happy Knitting and like Brenda Dane says "If you're cold put on a sweater that's what they're for"
