It feels good to get a project off the needles. I just finished my panel for Leigh Radford’s Community Knitting Project. This is for a blanket; each blanket consists of nine panels.
This looks delicious. (I’ve had too many cinnamon rolls lately…)
I picked up this project from Leigh when it looked like this, including the needles which were donated by Lantern Moon. The needles will go back to Leigh and maybe someone else will knit a panel with them. (Or do you want to? I can send them along.)
The dark brown Lamb’s Pride stripe was just started. I went from there to here.
It’s interesting to try to coordinate with someone else’s color palate! I had some leftover yarn from my Log Cabin Blanket, and was happy to see that some of the colors would work. This was great TV knitting, a simple ribbed pattern.
Now that the blanket panel is done, I’m planning to start January with a little selfish knitting. Fingerless mitts are in order! They’ll either be my Hugs and Kisses Fingerless Mitts that I started on the flight back from Hawaii (but didn’t get far)…
…or a new design that’s rolling around in my head in Malabrigo Arroyo, a sport/DK weight superwash. I just picked this up at Twisted when I dropped off some patterns yesterday.
These blues are so me! But so is the Beaujolais. Where should I start? Or maybe I should start both; the OXO mitts for when I just want to follow a pattern, and the Arroyo when I have more time to think and plan. Yeah, that’s the ticket…
I also think I’m making something for DH for his January birthday. Maybe. That’s a lot on the needles for a usually monogamous (about projects) knitter. Wish me luck!
What’s on your needles for the new year?
