Back in August, I was thinking about projects I'd like to do.

1. Holycrapthat'sanawesomeclock: I made two of these and gave them away. (Blogged here and here.)  Then I couldn't find yarn to go with the clock I bought and I stalled before I made one for myself. Still a possibility.

2.HP bookmark: I couldn't get excited about this. The instructions looked too hard, and I decided I didn't care enough to learn for this project.  So there.

3. Crochet ornaments: Well, I took a crochet class, and I spent part of yesterday reading an intro book to crochet. This is also still a possibility.

4. Noro striped scarf: I started this one last night!

The Internets are true. I do get an enormous amount of pleasure waiting for the next color change.  Think I'm simple?  Shrug. It's better than a crack habit.

5. Naive socks for my mil's bff: Done and given as a Christmas gift! She loved them and sent me a very nice thank you note.  Apparently it is quite difficult to find socks that fit if you're a woman with a size 11 foot. I am pleased to be able to help.

6. Cashmere scarf: Done! I gave away Henry at Christmas. The recipient said he loved it, which was very smart of him.

I'm in a bit of a rut, not excited about any knitting. I blame NO SUN.  Man, I miss the sun. I don't mind the cold, but the dreariness...

Anyway, tonight I'm going to yoga class, and then I'll knit some more on this scarf.  Things will turn around if I keep plugging along.  

Knit on.

  1. Love that color change in Noro--but I haven't found just the "right" project for it yet--scarf would be good. Hmmmm.
