Yarn Along January 2 2013

yarnalong_gsheller_grayIt's Wednesday and today I'm joining Ginny and her Yarn Along where crafters share their projects and the books that they're reading.

A New Year's with lots of knitting is a good way to start 2013. I'm giving sweater knitting another try and it feels right. Frogging a nearly finished sweater will teach you a lot about knitting. Finding a better sweater to knit that will suit the yarn feels like an accomplishment. I'm gonna write a little more detail about this new sweater later, but for now I wanted to show you that it is in fact on the needles and that I'm reading Parisian Chic by Ines de la Something, which I enjoyed so much that I also bought the 2013 planner.

I know I could keep track of my calendar using some silly app, but I can't doodle all over a calendar app. Writing out my agenda seems to get things done.

Speaking of 2013, I have a coupla goals:

1) Knit 2 beautiful sweaters in time for next fall.

2) Blog more knitting stuff.

3) Take more knitting photos.

4) Write frequently.


This week I'm reading Parisian Chic by Ines de la Fressange. Some of its advice is a little more conservative than I usually like, but it certainly shows you how to have your own individual style. And where to visit in Paris. It's been too long since I last visited France. Sigh. But at least I can read about it in books. It's like traveling to Paris without having to endure dehumanizing security screens.

I can't wait to tell you about this new sweater. It's actually a free pattern available on Ravelry. You'll have to check in later to see.

What are you knitting? How's your 2013?

I absolutely love the purple yarn. I can't wait to see your finished sweater!

I'm making great progress! It was totally worth frogging that sweater. Glad you like it.

Blogging about knitting since 2004.


What's going on now?

To sum up: husband has a job after two layoffs in 2013. Husband has been laid off for the fourth time in two years due to companies cancelling projects. I have two kids under the age of 5, we just moved in with my mother in law and I think I'm starting to get my mojo back. I've had writer's block for weeks.
