The grand scheme for 2008 is to produce fabulous knitting from my stash. I have joined a trio of stash busting groups. The Ravelry Stash Knit Down 2008, Stashalong II, and Socks from the Stash equal triple accountability.
On that note, I have finished a sock that should have seen completion far sooner. The Lacewing Fixation sock from the prodigious Hurricane Party, thrown every year by Cristybelle.
I started the second sock right after Christmas while taking to the couch with a cold. Upon near completion and my near recovery, we took the sock for a trip along the Indian River towards the Haulover Canal. The manatees were grazing in the warm water and pelicans enjoyed the 80 degree weather as did we.
I have a nice pair of anklets to start the New Year with.
On the needles and, hot on the heels of Lacewing are a pair of Pomatomus socks knit using Cherry Tree Hill from my stash.
I started on the Icarus Shawl using KnitPicks Alpaca Cloud that I traded two skeins of Spunky Eclectic sock yarn for.
I am still plodding along on DaCapo. I can report that I have knitted the second sleeve and really just need to knit through gritted teeth. I am so close to completion. Completing this sweater is one of the goals that I have listed. There are several sweaters that I purchased yarn for in 2007. Among them are the Kauni Cardi, Sunrise Circle Jacket, the Rouge, Arwen, and the Tilted Duster. So many choices and only twelve months until another year heralds new challenges.
Here's wishing every one a productive and happy new year!
