so, what are you working on?

I don't know what it is about the new year that does this to me every time, but now that it's January I feel like I want to do everything. All of the things. I want to start a million projects. I want to clean out my closet. I want to knit 9 different sweaters. (Have you seen my Ravelry queue? 252 projects. Not exaggerating.) At least my enthusiasm has been a little bit productive. I'm excited to share some new finished projects in the next couple of days. I've been knitting with some crazy good Wool and the Gang yarn. I'm obsessed with it lately. And I've been working on two patterns from Island, the fantastic new book by Jane Richmond. Oh my. That book is delicious. She so kindly invited me to be a part of her blog tour for this new book, so she sent me a copy and I could not wait to dive in and make something right away. I have already made Arbutus and Refrew. Be sure to check back for a chance to win your own gorgeous copy of Island and to see how my projects turned out this Thursday, January 24th, for my little stop on the blog tour. So excited! (So what are you working on right now?)

  1. I will DEFINITELY be checking back! That book is amazingly beautiful and I would love to get my own copy! I'm new to knitting (as you know!) so I'm working on my first cowl that I'm knitting in the round. So far so good! PS. I'll get your needle back to you as soon as I'm done! ;)

  2. ooh, that book looks great! The Strathcona scarf is lovely. I have never tried anything lace knit, but I would love to!

    Right now, I'm not working on anything, but I'm working on finding the time to pick up my needles again. It'll happen, it will!!

  4. Glad to see a new post! I'm usually just a reader but had to let you know that you were missed! I'm trying to finish a scarf for my sister right now but I broke my wrist on Christmas so it's pretty slow going. Who knew breaking your wrist affected your fingers so much...can't even make a fist. I wasn't a speedy knitter before but now... As for the book, I love the Renfrew hat; how cool is it that you knit it Inside out? I may have to add that one to my queue! :)

  5. I've been knitting, cooking, and sewing all the things and nope, I'm not pregnant. I've been in major nesting mode this month and it's a great feeling. ;)

  6. That yarn looks so yummy! I feel the same way as you do every January. I'm making a baby quilt for my new nephew - giving free motion quilting a try for the first time. Also been cleaning out and organizing closets and drawers in our house. I would love to get started on a crochet afghan soon, and learn to knit, and, and, and :)
