First finished project of 2012

I knit the last stitch and tucked in the last end on January 1st. It took much longer to dry though and the pictures are bad. There hasn't been any good daylight for pictures, when I was home, all week. I will really be glad when the days are finally long enough that there is decent day light in the morning or evening.

The pattern is Klukka from Lopi.

I made mine using Cascade 220. It's beautiful. Now I just need to find some where to wear it.

I was doing really well on the stash reduction but I bought yarn for socks and mittens at the year end sale at Personal Threads. The first sock is almost finished and as soon as I find the other skein of yarn I want I can start the mittens.

The new year looks promising.

Happy New Year!

I've had quite the year.

If I'm lucky and can stop falling asleep I might finish my first sweater of the year on the first day of the year.

I spent last night with friends celebrating the end of 2011 and the beginning of 2012. I slept in this morning. I've managed two naps already and I've only been out of bed for 8 hours. I suspect I'll be calling it a night early tonight as well.

I had planned to knit a pair of socks today, that isn't going to happen. Maybe tomorrow.
