I figure I did well last year when I challenged myself to finish at least one project a month. I managed something like 25 finished items last year. So far this year i have made a cowl using Skein Queen Desire and the Noble Cowl pattern on Ravelry. It was super fast and easy knit and used up very little yarn (184yds). I need to wash and block it and I think I'll put it away toward Christmas gifts as I'm not entirely sure it's my color. Not to mention I rarely wear/keep anything I knit though I am trying to change that this year and be a bit more of a selfish knitter and make things I want to keep.
Yesterday I met up with 8 other knitters at Westfields for lunch and some knitting. Alice who runs Socktopus brought some of her new yarns she has been busy dyeing. I managed to buy 2 skeins from her, one in a color that was on her blog earlier this week that I fell in love with but thought I wouldn't get as they were her Dyepot Babies. Anyway, it hasn't been officially named but I've named my skein Louis. The other skein was just a really good shade of a blue-red that I had to have. I love red but only if it's the right shade. I am not a fan of orange red at all and that's what I find more of when looking for yarn much to my dismay.
