Happy Blogiversary!

Today is my 1 year blogiversary. On this very day one year ago I started up my very own blog. I have met so many new people in the last year that it is unbelievable. There are far too many to list and you know who you are, so I will leave it at that. I have even started turning people over to the dark side, convincing them that they too needed a blog. People like Sarah and Sabrina. Then Destiny started up a blog too. I am very proud of everything that I have accomplished and can't wait to see what comes in the new year.


Here is the progress on the Entrelac "Scarf". It is now a little over half way done. Meaning that it is a little over 45" in its unblocked state. It just seems to go on forever, but I feel better now that I am past the 1/2 way point. If you look closely you can see the fold in the scarf.


This is the very start of the Anemoi mittens. I know that I should be knitting constantly on the Entrelac "Scarf", but I just felt like I needed to start something else. Also, my mitten class started last week and I really like to have a project that goes along with the classes that I teach as a little treat to myself. It took me a little while to get gauge, but I finally managed it on US2.5's (Addi 2s) for the smallest size when I should be on 1s. I am so excited about getting to make these gorgeous mittens. I am making them out of Drops Alpaca colors blue #6790 & light butter #2110. I also finished the cable mitten, but it is down at KAH as a display for my mitten class. I'll show it off when it comes back home.

Website news: I have updated the Finished Objects Gallery with all of the photos I have received so far. Go and check them out, they are truly gorgeous. It just makes me so happy to see all of the things that have been made with my yarn. It is also not too late to submit any photos you may have, in fact it is never too late, so feel free to submit them anytime. I also updated the Yarn Gallery with all of the new yarns that I posted up on my etsy shop earlier this week.

I just finished a pair of socks made in your yarn and I loved it! It's so soft and pretty. I'll be back for more--maybe Cinder. That's intriguing me.
Happy BLOGversary
