A little piece of heaven

I finally got my hands on some Wollmeise. I have been drooling over this yarn for a year or so but it is so hard to get. I traded some Yarn Pirate yarn for my first skein in the colorway Saami with a fellow Ravelry member and then I was able to order a couple of the Yarnissima kits. I bought Fratello and Spina de Pesce. Let me tell you, this stuff is awesome. I can't wait to knit it up.

Spina de Pesce

As for my other knitting progress, I don't think I'll make a pair of socks this month or next but I am hoping I will make one sock each month. I've almost finished my first sock of the pair.

My boss and his wife had the cutest baby girl right before New Year's so I'm in the mood to knit some baby stuff. I bought the yarn for a Baby Surprise Jacket and I think I'm going to do some mittens and booties too.

2009 Knitting

I don't think of this as a resolutions list but for 2009 I would like to knit:

1. A pair of socks every month. Or at least a sock a month so that would be 6 pair for the year.

2. A sweater for me.

3. A lace shawl.

4. Entrelac.

5. Fair Isle or colorwork, probably mittens

Happy New Year!

2009 is here and 2008 is gone. I don't have any formal New Years resolutions but every year I vow to get in better shape, save money, and try to be happy.

From my family to yours, I hope everyone has a great 2009!
