It's almost over. It's been a nice vacation and holiday. I am very fortunate to have been able to do just what I have wanted during this time off. Seriously, though, it is probably to my advantage to go back to work. I've pretty much ate what I wanted during this time off and with most people, it's time to get back on the wagon and eat right and start getting some exercise. Today, seems like a good day to start.
On the knitting resolution front, I have a couple of thoughts on my list.
1. Knit Stash - it's no secret that I have a stash, but with a new grandbaby coming this Summer, it's important that I start knitting down the stash. The baby is going to need a space to sleep when it comes to visit and although, the yarn is good insulation in the room, it would be nice if I could actually have a space for it to sleep.
2. WIPS - I did take do a little clean-up last Summer on some WIPS, taking them off of the needles and re-purposing the yarn. In 2012, I am going to try and get some more off of the needles, hopefully in the form of finished project.
Late yesterday, I hauled a pair of socks out that I have been knitting on for I don't know how long. Before bed, I finished them. The yarn is Lorna's Laces that I bought from Needleworks in Urbana years ago. I have had one done for probably two or three years.
The needles that were in the knitting of the second sock was a size 2 which may account for the bigness of the sock. I am such a loose knitter, I can't imagine knitting the foot part in a size 2. Normally, I would use a 2 in the cuff and then switch to a size 1 for the rest. That tells me that this sock has been around for awhile!
As it turns out, this WIP will make a nice grab and go project when needed.
I'm feeling pretty good this morning about my knitting resolutions and a tad about going back to work tomorrow. It's time to get back into a routine.
Happy Knitting for now.
