...as my mother often says...
Should I show you my new yarn, my finished hats, or the socks I finished just before Christmas?
Pattern: Zante by Lorraine Umbers (Oh, Rani! This is another FREE Ravelry download!) Yarn: The Unique Sheep Green Sheep Fingering Color: Spruce Needles: Knitpick DPN's US 1 1/2 or 2.5 mm Started: December 13, 2009 Completed: December 25, 2009.
Note: This yarn has been marinating in my stash for a very, long time. I don't know why I waited so long to use it. It was a little rough to hand, but softened up very nicely after a little Soak. I have the store down as Woolgirl, but I am not at all sure about that purchase location. (This photo is old camera, really quickly before I had to put the socks into the basket! My Bella Mittens were the new camera. I'm real happy with the colors so far.) Also - definitely check out Lorraine's pattern shop on Ravelry - she's got quite a few cute sock patterns. (Third Dog was also from her shop.)
I started the Knotty but Nice hat from the Winter Knitty, and I can tell this one is going to fly along just as quickly as the first two. My knit production is certainly providing me with plenty of blog fodder for the new year!
Finally, Woooo Hoooo USA! Those Junior Hockey players have earned the GOLD vs. Canada! What a game!!!
Have you trekked to the National Sports Center to watch the womens USA hockey team practice? Very cool opportunity.
