New Year - New Projects - New Adventures

Happy New Year! It's hard to believe that 2008 is already here. There are so many things happening this year. Here's a partial list:
1. ES moves to DC and starts new job.
2. E gets married, if the girls parents don't talk her out of it.
3. M comes home from Bolivia.
4. R graduates from high school.
5. J-b comes home from Richmond, VA.
6. Pack up house and move to DC.
7. Take heritage trip with R.
This list is only through the first of June. No wonder my knitting and spinning have been very profitable lately. I needed the de-stressing time.

Yesterday I was able to complete this hat. I think it's kind of cute. I call it my starfish hat. Doesn't the top look like a starfish? If I had done the contrast color is brown, it would have looked more like one. But, I wanted to use what I had left of the Keltic by Berroco. The pictures didn't turn out too well. They were done inside where it is dark. I liked knitting with the Keltic. I don't know that I would do a large project with it, but it worked well for Meg's mitts and my hat.

I also started a baby sweater. I will get pictures of it tomorrow. It is the Knitting pure & simple easy baby cardigan. It is constructed from the top down, raglan style. I have the body all done and one sleeve almost completed. Only about one more inch on the first sleeve and then the second sleeve to do. I should get it done by tomorrow. I am not working tomorrow, because my boss said I wouldn't be much help to him with just having sent ES on the road to DC.

I haven't counted up the projects I completed last year. I didn't keep a very good knitting journal then. Hopefully this year, with the blog and the journal, I can keep a better record. I do have to finish Mr Greenjeans, that's the only UFO from last year. Everything else was completed. Yah Right! I still have the Christmas stocking from the last sock class and the socks from the November class. Ok, only three projects not finished from 2007.

Happy knitting & spinning.
