… blogger … somewhat bad knitter.
Life got busy with a new job and somehow 6 months or so just flew by. The new job is great, but I just haven’t had the mental energy to keep up with everything. One of my goals for the new year is to get a little balance back into my life.
Knitting suffered a bit too. My goal of 11 in 11 (pairs of socks and cabled things) was just barely achieved and only with a little fudging. One “pair” of socks were these tiny ones …
Some of the socks were cabled, so they counted for both. Not exactly what I had in mind initially, but still not too bad.
Some of the socks did double duty on the design front too. I’m working on two separate cable patterns:
Hugs & Kisses:
and Manly Hugs:
I’m hoping to have patterns written up and published for mitts and socks for both by the middle of January. Eventually, I’d like to add a toe-up version to the sock patterns too.
