last night i spent a bit of time catching up on my bloglines and noticed all of the lovely new years posts. i started thinking what my new years post might have been in light of my current series on patterns – perhaps may all your gauges be spot on ;) and a challenge? may you create a new pattern this year or alternately – may you make something fulfilling up this year.
i mostly finished cleaning and organizing the little yarn room yesterday and this morning so that i can actually fit one of the spinning wheels in the room. towards the end of organizing, in the pile i was sorting on the floor i saw this little note card. i assume it fell out of one of magazines or booklets i’ve been paging through lately. use at your own risk – you can click on the picture to go to flickr to see the whole note card or click all sizes to see it larger.
and lastly, the christmas knits? all fit perfectly and were well appreciated. my grandmother loved her shawl. my mom went over there the other day and she had it layed out over the back of the couch. i asked if she wore it while she sat there watching TV and my mom said she didn’t know. maybe i shouldn’t have made it so pretty :)
see previous post here for the rest of these.
dad’s dream fly fishing mitts (perfect! finally…). i’m supposed to make his friend mike a pair now to. it’s only fitting since mike already has a hat i made. outdoorsy men in montana certainly need warm winter wear.
mom’s socks fit fine. about as dramatic as my family gets is saying something like, “the hat fit lester perfectly, he put it on and that was it,” meaning he was happy and didn’t take it off. now, only 2 more christmas projects to go (yes, there are more) and i’m on to some commissions.
