Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had a good holiday. I just got back from home and finally had a moment to post on my holiday knitting. I was pretty productive. I finished all but the band for Glaistig and I am a bit more than halfway done with Argosy. I have learned two valuable lessons while working on these two projects. One, Koigu is amazing yarn (Glaistig). It felt heavenly in my hands. If I could, I would knit in only Koigu for the rest of my life. Two, yarn with more than one color (striping, varigated, etc) are very painful when there is a knot in the yarn or you have to change skeins, because as much as you want a "smoothness" to the color transistions, you are NEVER going to get it. It made me sad. :(

The Christmas holiday left me with quite a few additions to my knitting library. I got a few Barbara Walker books (treasuries 2-4) and EZ's "Knitting Around" and "The Opinionated Knitter." I also got "Loop-d-Loop" and "Knitting Sweaters in Plain English." Oh! I also got a pair of the glow in the dark needles (size 10 1/2).

  1. Those are some real gems in your knitting library now. You'll love them.

    And be sure to tell us what you think of the glow-in-the-dark needles!
