Ok....so a couple of items that I have always wanted to knit so I crossed the new year with... Jo Sharp's Irish Mesh Cowl in a beautiful and very soft eco-dyed yarn from Lynne Vogel.
Quickly followed up with a pair of fingerless mitts in baby alpaca, I've been eyeing around Haus of Yarn. Two very fun projects that I'm happy with and after all the afghans, nice to see some results in a relatively short period of time. With all the snow here, these have been great winter knitting.
Ok...so early this year I decided to track how many miles I was knitting and spinning. While at the time it seemed like a great idea, now I feel like I should have gone with how much I frogged. So I have knit 12.2 and spun 11.4 miles for 2013......in hindsight a mile a month just doesn't seem like that much. Or does it just not sound like that much while it really is a lot? I have so many projects I was thinking it felt like 120 miles. So next year....bring on the kilometres.
