As I read other people's blogs, it seems I'm not the only one who had a tough time of 2010. Saturn must have been in conjunction with something.... he's a rat bastard that Saturn. I'm glad my ruling planet is Jupiter - he's king of the gods... and it's good to be the king! But I digress, I wanted to share 2011's knitting goals with you.
As the title suggests - this year is going to be all about me! I'm going to knit what I want, when I want. No challenges, no deadlines, no pressures. The only Ravelry "thing" I'm joining is the Year of the Cat (of course). But there's no pressure there either - If I get something done, I do - if I don't no biggie (I won't be winning prizes.)
The only thing I'm going to try to keep under control is my WIPs. I'm thinking no more than 5 at a time (not including the crackghans)
So, speaking of WIPs... here are two I've recently cast onThis is a modified Lumi in the Mini Mochi I bought for my birthday. I did start making socks with this yarn, but the single ply was too much of a pain on tiny needles... so a shawl it is (I thought I was all shawled out after the 2010 challenge, but apparently not....)
And, since I did really want to knit some socks...These are the Black Rose Socks knit in our new Jungle Cat! I am loving this yarn (colourway is Nana's Brooch).
So yeah... this year is all about me (at least knitwise) I think it's about time!
