In with the New

January 16, 2009

Now that all that pesky Christmas knitting is done. I can think about knitting for pleasure rather than obligation. At least for a few months. So what do you knit when you are knitting totally for yourself.

First, I have to find a project for this lovely yarn that the Knit Together gals sent me.

Shown here being snuggled by KT my new little pal that I also got from the KT gals.

I am thinking that I might use it to test knit a pattern that I designed a while back but didn’t publish.

Or I might go with something like Woodland Shawl.

I have also been wanting to finish my wool Bell Curve skirt.

It is still just a little too short for me.

I am also finally going to knit my Firestarter socks which currently look a lot like this

It is the project that keeps getting pushed aside for knitting for others. It is also getting pushed back because I am going to have to adjust the math slightly because this is a thinner yarn than the designer used.

Then I have this yarn that is begging to become a shawl

If I can only make up my mind which one.
I am thinking about this, this, or this.

I have also been itching to make this, this and this.

Then I have this yarn

this yarn

this yarn

and this yarn all waiting for just the right project.

What is a knitter to do?

    Okay, that’s it. Lock your doors, I’m coming over to “borrow” your stash. Wow. You’ve got some great stuff there, enjoy.

    What’s a knitter to do? KNIT! Oh, and make a plan – we talk about that in the next episode of KT, which is recorded but not posted yet. Hang in there.

    Decisions, decisions, decisions!

    I have stash aplenty but not nice stuff like that – mostly inexpensive yarns for charity knitting. Now that I’m finished knitting Myrtle [*gasp*] I have to decide what to knit next. I know what I want to knit but I don’t have the yarn in my stash! :-(
