Some highlights of the past year:
My first comment: Thursday, November 23, 2006 (I was so excited because it meant other people were actually reading this!)
My first link from someone else's blog: Here (There I am under "Blogs I Read"!)
And a comment from a famous person! Rob Scotton Comment (There it is, the only comment that day!)
Plus I have 7 subscribers to my blog on Bloglines! (People actually want to know when I have something new to show)
I love my readers! To show my appreciation to you guys, the first person to leave a comment on this post will receive a $40 gift certificate to Robyn's Nest! It's a great Canadian online yarn store.
...and now for the really good stuff!
'Tis the season to get festive:
The Argyle Christmas Stockings from this book, hung by the chimney with care! (Okay, I still have to embroider the names, but I hate sewing and the knitting part is finished so they classify as a FO!)
Next to deck the tree:
I have made two of each of these. I used smaller needles (2.5mm) and sock weight yarn in order to make them fit 55mm glass balls. I think they are really cool and I still have six more balls to cover.
By the way, they are photographed hanging on this:
The latest in my purchases for the apartment. (I fell in love with the design of this lamp, and I had to have it).
So, current projects on the needles now are:
My boyfriend's Aran Style Sweater:
Yes, I'm still plugging away at the front of it. I am determined to have it finished by Christmas!
My Fall Turtleneck:
I LOVE this colourway! It's Fall Foliage by Cherry Tree Hill, purchased at The Loopy Ewe. I'm using the DK weight. Both sweaters are my own designs. I can't wait to finish them.
and I'm going to start this as a Christmas present for my boyfriend's mom. I'm using Lane Borgesia Cashwool in Black.
Well that's it for now...and my new blogyear's resolution is to try and post at least once a week.
TTFN and KEEP KNITTING!
