February goals

Like January I have set my self a goal of knitting a pair of socks with Desert Vista Dyeworks sock yarn. The problem is that I have caught a case of castonitis  and I am currently working on three other projects.

I started my Mama Vertabrae for the miss click clack jumper KAL, two squares for the Giant scrap blanket and I have also given my Chevron blanket and wee bit of attention.

For my February socks I am knitting the poodle skirt colourway. And of course I am leaving it to last minute and I have only just cast on the second sock yesterday.

 At first I was just planning on knitting one giant square, but then I started thinking how good four large squares would look sewn together so I cast on a second square. This mindless knitting is completely addictive while I watch Crossing Lines.

And my third new project is the the Mama Vertabrae. I'm knitting mine with miss click clack yarn in the Darling Road base in the Silver bear colourway. I love the way the fabric feels.

I am hoping I can stay motivated long enough to finish my second sock. I 
Happy Knitting!

January goals

I always start the year with grand plans and then I fail miserably by mid February. So this year I thought I would try something different. I am going to try monthly goals.

So my goals for January are to knit one pair of socks knit with Desert Vista Dye works yarn. I am waiting for my order to arrive, it has been sitting at customs since the 25th of December. My second knitting goal is to knit the Simpatico Wrap by Kristine Vejar. 

For the Simpatico Wrap I've chosen Miss Click Clack yarn. The base is Nightman's Highway and the colours are I am the Walrus and Garden Party. 

I started on the first of January and it's such fun knitting while I re-watch Nashville.

Whether you have goals for the year ahead or not I wish you all the best for 2017.
