Project Monogamy in 2010
I'm thinking 2010 will be the year of project monogamy. Of course I reserve the right to make 2010 about something else later, but for now, project monogamy.
Ingeborg has moved back into the rotation for the Knit a Norwegian KAL. Very fun KAL, by the way. I had knit a few inches 3 years ago, then tossed it aside willy-nilly. After picking it up and knitting a few more inches I realized my gauge was way off so I ripped the body back to where the patterning starts above the hem. I decided the sleeves would be my gauge swatches. Knitting the sleeves first is fun!
DH's birthday is in the spring and he is getting this:
Not in finished form you realize. Hopefully we will not have a repeat of the moose sweater debacle, ie. it will be finished by next year's birthday. This pattern is in the elusive, out-of-print Dale of Norway book #79, but luckily Allegro Yarns offers the kit.
I've been trying to read actual books in 2010 too instead of just Ravelry and blogs. I was doing pretty well too until an iphone version of Chuzzle came out. Too many nights my reading time (between knitting and falling asleep) is taken up by little exploding fuzzballs. Could there BE a bigger waste of time?
