Hey look, two Finished Objects! Just in time for the holiday season (for me, me, me! Yes there’s some gift knitting, too, don’t worry.)
(Striped Hat and Scarf – Pattern and wool from Philosopher’s Wool. I did the hat in stockinette stitch instead of garter stitch.)
I may just be sabotoging myself now by even suggesting such a thing as a yarn diet, but I’m very intrigued by Wendy’s Knit-from-Stash 2007 project
. While I’m sure my stash is NOwhere near the size of knitters more experienced and/or more obsessive than me, it’s gotten bigger in the last year and has plenty of projects’ worth of yarn to keep me busy for the next several months. I may just have to sign myself up. (The one exception is that we are still allowed to buy sock yarn. In the words of the immortal Yarn Harlot – it’s like methodone, right? Something to just take the edge off.) ;)
Also, give it up for Twig, who just finished an awesome Gansey sweater for her hubby, just in time for the holidays. That’s love, baby.
I don’t imagine I’ll be posting a WHOLE lot over the next week or two over the holidays, as busy-ness and preparattions (well, and a bit of laziness) collide, so allow me to wish all of you out there a very, very happy holiday season and all the best for 2007. It’s a privilege to be among so many fantastic knitters out here on the Interwebs.
