A new Journey Begins

Well the lovely Meggie has done it again.  She turned me into a proficient sock knitter including mini's with color work. Now she has me making cables.

So now begins a 12-month journey to knit a cape that tells her story of love . Love of her family, life, Country, tradition. All the things that are important to me.  I can't tell my story through design like she can so I will help tell her story.

I almost chose not to take this journey but things just fell together. The yarn was the right place, the test knit was easier then I thought it would be and things just fell into place. So here we go.  A new Journey in the year 2011.

Stash Busting Project 2011

Well I've decided I need to get rid of some of my yarn stash (so I can make room for more of course) I have these 2 patterns for a pair of slipper sox and a quick and easy beannie that I think will help me get rid of some of this yarn and let me get crazy with colors.  I can make one set in a good, non stressfull and non busy weekend.

Here is what I finished the last weekend of December, but I need to start January. The goal is to make at least one set a month for the entire year!
