A rough plan for the year...

Well, it's been quite a while since I have written anything here.

I survived Christmas knitting, completing almost everything that I meant to complete. Now, even being a month after Christmas, I am still knitting gifts for other people. So far, I made a pair of fingerless gloves for myself, a pair of fingerless gloves for a friend at work, a pair of thrummed mittens for a friend who moved away to Newfoundland, and a scarf for my sister. I am halfway through a pair of plain socks for myself(an unnoticed dropped stitch at the toe kinda bummed me out but the first one is finished). I am not going to knit so many gifts this year for Christmas.

After I finish the socks I want to make myself a nice cozy cowl out of the Fleece Artist cashmere I bought last fall at Gaspereau Valley Fibres, and then I will have to start on the Open Waters Shawl for my sister's brthday and a pair of socks for my mom's birthday. I just wanna knit for ME now... I think it's time already. Oh, and I've started a doggie sweater for Cuddles which won't take long to finish since Cuddles in a miniature poodle! I have been putting off the shawl for Stef though, so I really should get it started.

I am planning on knitting the Twin Trees afghan this year(instead of the original Tree of Life one I was going to make). I also plan on knitting a sweater this year at some point. For now though I am going to work on a sock collection. I also wanna fit in a pair of thrummed mittens for me before winter is through.

Anyway, that's the rough knitting plan for this year... I am sure it will change and update.

Yes, you should knock off some knits for yourself! LOL! I have a sweater or two for me to make this year (hopefully). Usually I just make myself socks, mittens, etc, small stuff. I also want to make my Dad and step FIL each a sweater for Christmas.
