Happy New Year - 2011

Here it is
another new year ! ! !
Seems like it was just yesterday that we were celebrating the beginning of Twenty-Ten.

Wishing each of you a GREAT 2011 ! ! ! ! !

Today is the first day of the Knit-A-Long [KAL] on Raverly
for Cookie A's newest Sock pattern book

Knit.Sock.Love
*********************************
Our choices are
Cookie's new pattern from the book -
Pointelle
or
a previously published pattern - Hedera.

I've knit Hedera twice already
and I do want to knit from her new book
so I cast on Pointelle this morning
and will cast on Hedera later this month.

The yarn is Jojoland Melody
- it's 100% wool -machine washable.

This pattern will take a little concentration to get it right!
Oh, my, am I in trouble????????

As you can see it is a solid peach rather than
that self-patterning yarn I attempted to knit Cauchy in last month.
Should be a great KAL for January/February !


Did I tell you last week was My Birthday ? ? ?

I love these snowmen!
They never made it out of their carton.


Hugs
