Show Notes: “Happy New Year!”
♥ Fall into Shawls ends tonight! If you want to be eligible for the prize drawing next week, please get your finished object into the contest thread before I lock it in the morning.
♥ My mother’s socks are off the needles!
♥ 2 Molly Hats by Erin Ruth have been finished as well!
♥ Margo Poncho by Elizabeth Smith is slowly growing.
Spinning A Yarn:
♥ I could not resist starting a long-term spindle project during my knit dates. Two if by Hand SW BFL “Exhausted Pinks” on my micro Trindle.
♥ Woodland Sampler by Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery is complete!
♥ Picture This Plus Lugana evenweave for two FPS samplers next year!
♥ Ply, Winter 2014 Issue “Worsted”
♥ Hello Yarn “Patchwork Kit #107”
♥ I revisited my goals from 2014 and found I didn’t do so well on most of them. I did have a good laugh rewatching Episode 53 to remember what they even were.
♥ See my yardage tally post and Stashdown Q4 post to see how I fared in those endeavors!
♥ Handknit/Handspun Giftmas 2015 is a go! I’m going to work on presents throughout the year to get them all done before going home in December. I have 10 to work on for family, not including my household.
♥ I want to spin at least 144oz out of stash for an overall stash reduction of 32 ounces (or 2 lbs) of fiber from the amount I have today. There will be a blog post about this in the coming days.
♥ I’m hoping to knit at least 3 sweaters out of stash this year: my current WIP “Margo Poncho”, “Andover Poncho” with some lovely Pashmina worsted, and to resurrect my Hiro sweater and do an afterthought steek to make it a cardigan.
♥ I want to knit at least 6 pairs of socks and have put together a mini-sock club of 8 skeins to pull from for the year.
♥ Finally spin on both of my Turkish spindles.
♥ Sew 4 articles of wearable clothing from fabrics I have in-stash. I would like to have a mostly handmade wardrobe by 2020.
♥ Resist stashing fiber beyond my two clubs and yarn in any form for the year. Exceptions might be made in preparation for 2016’s Zombody Year Long sock club I would like to do for myself.
Happy New Year, Kittens!
