Year of Projects: Encouraged

I looked over my pinterest board: Photo Finish 2013 and felt an immense sense of accomplishment. I think keeping a log of what I've knit will keep my motivated to keep moving forward.

I finished a hat for myself a couple of weeks ago and I've been wearing it all the time. It is warm and roomy enough for my hair when I have it up in a sloppy bun or ponytail.

I am working on a pair of socks for Stomper that I optimistically will finish him for Valentines Day. They are going to be huge on purpose. They are intended to wear as an extra layer in his boots and will fit him until he is four (I hope).

The kitty is in the time-out chair while I consider what to do. I am confident that I don't have enough yarn to make it the size I want to. Perhaps I will pick it up soon at a smaller scale.

I cast on for a project for myself, the second this year! My husband bought everything on my wish list at knitpicks and on it was one skein of Chroma. I have fretted since Christmas what to knit. I finally settled on Mira's Cowl and I cast on this Wednesday.

  4. Love all the cables in your hat. I keep seeing people referring to their pinterest boards. I joined sometime back, added a few things and then other people added stuff I didn't really want on my board. Haven't been back to it since to see how things work. I spend so much time with the charity, Bridge and Beyond and then all the regular blogging...just not sure how to best use it or delete it. Must give it so more thought.

  6. What a lovely husband, and what a lovely hat! Is it the starcrossed slouchy beret? I made that one for my sister and she loves it.

    Great idea for pinterest too. I deactivated my account for a while because I was so fed up with the spamming and scamming there, but it's a great tool.

  7. While I am not a hat person (obviously I don't live in the mid-west of north-east!) I really like your hat. It looks very comfortable and cozy. Your Chrome yarn is gorgeous as is the pattern you chose...and a high-five goes to your husband for the great gifts.
