Happy New Year!

Here’s my last FO for 2008.

ribbed cap

It’s the Head Hugger beanie from Ann Norling. I made it last night. I’m teaching a class at Twisted in February and again in April, Intro to Circular Knitting/Basic Hat. I needed a shop model/teaser for the class. This is a good basic hat pattern that a relative newbie can master, and then customize as they wish. Should be fun!

I was going to make a mosaic of all my 2008 FO’s, but organizing all the pictures was daunting. There are about 30, and I’m out of time. So instead, here are things that I’ve designed/written during 2008.

mosaic designs

They are, from left to right, top to bottom: entrelac socks, felted slip stitch tote, log cabin baby blanket, zigzag lace pedi socks, stitch markers, checkerboard scarflet, Athena entrelac neck warmer, Pippi (pattern coming soon), and the square for the Afghans for Afghans afghan. Someday we’ll finish all those squares!

I started this blog in March, and it’s been way more fun than I anticipated. I started selling patterns on Ravelry and at Twisted this year, too, and that’s been a good experience. Thanks for coming along for the ride. Happy new year and happy knitting!

  1. I love the entrelac look. Perhaps someday I will work up the patience for all those short rows.

    Those mosaic makers are fun! But yes, time consuming too. Do you remember the Mosaic Meme that was floating around a while back? (Here’s mine http://smariek.blogspot.com/2008/07/mosaic-visual-meme.html) That’s when I first discovered those mosaic makers.

    Good luck with the teaching gig!
