I hope that everyone is having a great year so far! I have not been blogging as I would like but I will endeavour to change that this year and blog at least once a week and with at least one finished project. I am not making any resolutions but just am trying to become a better blogger.
I am also hoping to continue onward with y quest to knit more complicated patterns and larger items I think this year will be my year for garments and Stranding/Intarsia. Also knitting up my small stash. :O) And get cracking on knitting my first pair of socks. Wish me luck.
I must say thought my Christmas knitted gifts where very well received even if the recipients where just being nice, but most of them have asked for more knitted items and even volunteered to to buy me a knitting machine so I can get more knitting done faster. Was not too please at that idea, but they wouldn't understand. Non knitter very seldom do. I had to explain that I knit for relaxation and not for the finish items although that does make it all worth while.
But something good did come from my giving knitted gifts, one of my friends Yolande, liked her gifts so much she wanted to learn how to knit to here she is knitting her first project a scarf done in Paton's Lush. A very daring yarn for a first project but it came out quite nice and it took her 3 days to complete it, a very good effort. And already she is onto her second project. I feel so please my first student.
