Something new!

New

And OMG, it's even KNITTING!!  Actual knitting content on this here blog two days in a row.  Starting things off nicely...

I joined the UFO Smackdown group on Facebook (and have finished my nephew's Christmas stocking to start!), but that doesn't mean I can't start something NEW!  New year, new day, new yarn, new project!

I've been thinking of starting this sweater for a while now -- pretty much ever since it arrived!  For one thing, however small, it's a sweater and I really neeeeeeed to knit a sweater.  I do.  Need to.  Also, I woke up this morning to find a hank of this yarn on the floor -- a little bit chewed on and kind of linty -- apparently one of three possibilities (I'm bettin' on Duncan) thought it a new cat toy.  That is so WRONG!!  I could stuff it all away for another day, but I'd rather not.

This will be the Kelbourne Woolens Fiddlehead Pullover, the pattern and yarn -- the beautiful and oh, so soft Canopy (color: Cat's Claw) (hmmmm) from The Fibre Company -- which I won not long ago in a give-away (you can download your own copy of the pattern at that link) at The Purl Bee.

I'm casting on today!

She's knitting! It's a great beginning to the new year.
Over the weekend we made the chili you posted on Dec. 28th. It was fabulous and it's now our favorite chili recipe. Thank you!

Great time to start a new sweater!

Pretty, pretty color! And new projects give you more UFOs to smackdown! (Like my reasoning??)

and...the moment it is cast on it instantly becomes an UFO!!! Double points!!!

Hooray for a new sweater! I love the color.

Can't wait to see this sweater progress! Looks like fun.

Happy knitting this year Vicki! I just treated myself to one of those winders!
