tending my yarn garden...
Been enjoying reading through a new cookbook that the husband gifted to me and AnnaLynn for Christmas. Lots of yummy looking recipes fill the pages along with some nice photography which makes me eager to get busy in the kitchen. :)
Another Christmas gift I received was this knitting stitch collection -- so eager to dig in and learn something new!
The wee beanies above are the first two in an abundance of them that I hope will be flying off my needles as I stash-bust odds and ends of worsted yarn from previous projects. I'm not so good with coordinating colors, so I'm having fun with these and am happy with how the blue and brown one turned out.
Hard to believe but we've arrived at the final Yarn Along for 2015. I would have loved to have done a 2015 project and book recap, but instead I'm sharing the yarns I'll be working with in the coming weeks and months.
From left to right: a cowl, a mobius shawl, a cardigan, another cowl, a cowl/mitts combo, baby beanies, another shawl, a shrug, a beanie, and another beanie. I'm slowly updating my Ravelry project page; most of these are already listed as WIPs, but the bulk of them need to be updated. I'm really looking forward to some relaxed knitting time now that my holiday knitting is finished!
Here's to a happy and productive year of knitting in 2016!
