Still Holidays Here

Sunday, January 4th, 2009

colinetteappx250.jpgOn Sunday, Brian and I attended his family holiday gathering. I will see my family Friday. We’re not done with holidays yet!

I did cast on a totally new project just for me Sunday. For my 50th Birthday in November, I was gifted with a gorgeous skein of Colinette Jitterbug (100% wool sockyarn) in the colorway Florentina: Purple, magenta, blue and a touch of green. It’s really gorgeous.

So now I have half a foot (toe up) of a sock, very fine yarn on size 0 needles for a very firm gauge. These will be just beautiful.

So I’m doing Selfish Knitting at least a little. I am really hoping to pull out a few old projects that are hibernating, too, and finish them. I’m particularly longing to finish my Lucy Neatby Equilateral Vest. One day at a time.

As much as I am supporting knitting for oneself this month, we all have things that must be done, including work. This is a busy time of year, and I’m grateful for the classes I’m teaching with multiple students in them. I like my work, even when it *does* get in the way of my personal knitting!!!
