Happy New Year!! Van Dyke Socks Finished, Spinning Plans
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve. We had a quiet evening at home. It's ironic that it's always the one night of the year I have trouble staying awake until midnight. I thought I was going to call it quits at 10, but, I got another wind and stayed up until a little after 1 a.m.
I'm not making any resolutions. I will endeavor to work on my health issues, and try using yarns and fibers from the stashes to shrink them a bit. Other than that, nothing else comes to mind. Do you have any resolutions/intentions for 2011?
I did finish the Van Dyke socks today. I know these were my December socks for the Solid Socks group on Ravelry, but there was no way I could finish them in time. If I hadn't had to rip back sock 1 to before the gusset to fix the over-long foot, I probably would have made the December 31 deadline. Oh well. I still have a pretty pair of red socks to keep my feet warm. :)
My knitting is now the Evenstar, and a pair of plain "vanilla" socks to use as travel/group knitting. I'm in the Year of Stash Socks group and these are for that. I still need to finish the Spruce scarf that is up to the tree part on the first side.
