2014–Hopefully a better year than 2013

A fresh start and a new beginning for me.  I lost my best friend – my husband.  It was sudden and I am still in shock.  So, it’s a new beginning for me.  I will miss him and so will our Maggie.

I haven’t been knitting much the last month, but I did finally complete the Glynis Sock by Cookie A.  I used Shibui sock yarn in color 1675 (Pagoda).  I used a size 1.5 needle.  I enjoyed the pattern.  The only negative was having to move stitches in the leg.

I also completed one sock using Lollipop Yarns Christmas Carol.  I enjoyed knitting this because of the striping.  Too bad I didn’t have it finished for Christmas.  So, maybe next year.  I used a basic sock pattern with a size 1 needle.  I need to cast on sock 2.

I only bought one skein of yarn.  I guess I was too busy to shop for yarn.  I couldn’t resist Gynx self striping BFL sock yarn in the color Velveteen.  Susan B. Anderson designed a rabbit using this yarn.  I don’t know if I will make the rabbit, but maybe I need to get another skein of this to make it as well as a sock.

Well, I need to get working on the Hitchhiker.  So, I am off to get some knitting finished.
