i don't really make resolutions, but this year... this year i hope to do more designing. it kind of hit the back-burner in 2009 when life - work, moving, other various and sundry items - made things complicated and hectic, and the last thing i wanted to be doing in my down time was math. so keep me honest, folk. ping me every once in a while and make sure i'm working on something.
but not right now, because my head's in a bit of a fog! luckily, i have a good challenging-yet-mindless project on the needles that i can pick up every once in a while when i'm feeling less headachey - wallis. remember her?
over the holidays i ripped out the sad few inches i'd knit and started over again. this is one of those patterns where i know i'll be in love with the FO, and the lace chart is easily memorized, but in general is not for the faint of heart (or a beginning knitter) - you really have to fudge around a lot on the edges, where you increase. the instructions don't clearly tell you how to do it, and you need your wits and knitting instincts about you!
to keep things interesting, next weekend i'm also casting on for rosamund's cardigan by andrea pomerantz. malaraky and i are doing another knit-along, and this time beigeberry will be joining us! we're already planning our slight mods and i'm really looking forward to this project - it's always fun to knit with your friends, even if they're far away.
okay, time to go rest up a bit more. i'll leave you with a photo of maeve enjoying her favorite xmas present -
happy new year all!
