Here's to the first day of 2011. So far, so good. We had a lovely New Year's Eve at the home of some old friends, excellent food and company and a clear, dry, cold night in which to drive home. All good.
My first cast on object for this year is a pair of socks. I joined a group on Ravelry where we will knit a pair of socks each month from our existing stash. Not a problem for me and I probably do it anyway, but it's fun to be in a group! I started a pair of plain stockinette socks, cuff down, 1x1 rib at the top out of Wollmeise 100% superwash wool in the Saami colorway. This was a club colorway during the one year of the Wollmeise club and I wasn't sure I liked it right away. However, seeing some socks knit in it (Goatlady's!) made me change my mind and I can't wait to get mine finished.
I have a few things to finish up, of course. This week I need to finish and mail the vest I'm making for afghans for Afghans so it gets there in time for the current campaign.
All for now. Have a son and two of his friends coming for dinner, so must get cooking. I wish a year of health, happiness, prosperity, creativity, and of course much knitting for all of you.
