A New Year and A New Post

It has been a nice peaceful Christmas break around here. I can't believe that the girls go back to school tomorrow. I have to admit I will miss the girls in the morning. We had a great Christmas, we went to church on Sunday and just hung around the house for Christmas Eve since Brett had to work. My sister came for a few days and we really had a great visit. I managed to finish a pair of socks during this break. I wore them the other day and they are so comfy. I will have to get more of this yarn (after my yarn diet is over). The pattern is Pheasant Run Socks and the yarn was from Claudia Handpainted in the Loopy Ewe Sock Club. Thanks again Sheri for such great socks in the club.

If you finish a pair of socks you have to start another one. This is the Rib Zagger pattern. I am using Lorna's Laces in the Flamingo colorway. This yarn is really thin. I think it will be great in shoes but knitting on O's seems so small after I have been using 1.5's. I started them on Friday, December 28.

I had such a great year in knitting. I am looking forward to taking on new challenges. I am hoping to learn to spin this year and would like to make myself a sweater. I will see if I get these goals met. I hope all my knitting friends had a great Christmas season and also have a great New Year. I hope that your frogging is small and your Finished Objects outweigh your UFO's.

Great socks! Am I mistaken or did you do the monkey's too?

I love that pink yarn. The pattern looks interesting as well.

Great socks! And the pink color of your new pair is just lovely.
