Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

Yes, I'm late. Nothing new.
February 4th is Go Red for Women So be sure and wear RED for YOUR heart.

I have gotten a ton of knitting done but instead of spending 2 hours putting them on here (slow broadband at my house) I will direct you to my Ravelry Page.  There you will find all the knitting I've done lately.

Now, for the new knitting. I'm working on the Elbow Room Sweater vest  and not having much luck with the first row of the cable pattern. I tore it all out again (3rd time's a charm) and figured out what I was doing wrong. I just haven't been in the mood to pick it up again. Later, maybe.

I'm working on socks for the Baby Girl. I hate knitting socks, did I ever say that? But, they will be done before winter, next year.

We think this is an Orchard Oriel

I've been giving some thought to making THIS sweater. I have 2200 yards of Ecru Casacade 220 Superwash that I bought to make a sweater years ago and think it's time to use it up. I need to do cables. There are some on Alex's socks but I need lots of cables. I think I'm going to start either the end of February or the beginning of March.  I know it won't be done till next year, but I really doubt I'll need it around here anyway, so no hurry, I just like the sweater. It's been in my queue forever so time to start.

I'm not going to promise I'll do better at blogging in 2011. I've said that a bazzilion times and haven't been very good at it. I just don't have the "gift for gab" like I did when I started it. I'll just post when I feel like it but I do try to update my Ravelry page regularly - whatever that is.

So, happy New Year and hope you all had a Merry Christmas.

Happy Knitting!
