I've been a bad blogger. It just seems like too much trouble most of the time. But, here's a little update since August with pictures of the things I've finished.

Hitchhiker was finished in August. I absolutely love it!
Entrelac Scarf
The entrelac scarf was a lot of fun to knit & I love looking at it but it's rather scratchy so I doubt it will get much use. Which is really a shame considering how long it took me to knit it.

Mountain Stream Scarf
 The Mountain Stream scarf  cowl was a fun quick knit & was one of my possible choices for the scarf swap but it is also a bit scratchy.
Daybreak! Awesome!! Loved knitting it although I had lots of angst. I tried several different yarn combinations before find the grey bamboo/wool blend. And then I worried that it would be too heavy used with the fingering weight. I have yarn to make another one for me. This was the one I sent to my scarf swap partner.

Crochet Bag

Fun, fun fun!! Carrie R. made me make this one.

Lace Cardigan
Had some trouble getting going on this lace cardi because the pattern only gives you the first 7 rows but I found someone on Ravelry who sent me her charts. Yippee! I love Ravelry!! I'm doing the bottom edging in 1x1 rib currently then plan to do the front & neck edge with the sleeves last so I can make them as long as possible. I'm trying really hard to stick with this cardigan until it's finished. But, I bought a new outfit yesterday for New Year's Eve & it really really needs a silvery shawl....

Last year I finished almost 30 projects! 2013 will be about half that many.

Oh yeah....yarn that I bought on the yarn crawl...

This yarn is planned for another Daybreak along with some Blue Heron Rayon Metallic.

Mimi Mink
This is going to be Crimson Cashmere Cowl...except it'll be Lime Mink Cowl. There are several patterns from that magazine that I really would love to make. Like the Basic Bolero. I love the fitted look of that bolero.
