The Puff Sleeved Sweater

After Needlefingers Green and Purple post. I love that post. I took a good hard look at my own knitting and noticed that everything I had knit in 2008 was pink, chocolate brown, or white. It seemed fitting to unveil it today. You can thank me for not pulling out and taking photos of my stash to could show that I could spend the rest of 2008 knitting only pink, brown, and white.

Needlefingers, how about sending me a skein of green and purple sock yarn to cleanse my palette? I have Bewitched soap and Blue Lotus lotion with your name on it. I would send you some pink yarn as trade but I know that would never do.

I'm required to take a photography class this year (yes, life is rough) and for it I had to get a good SLR digital camera. In the tradition of knitting blogs everywhere let me present my cat.

I love how a shallow depth of field makes my dirty kicthen just look like pretty colors.

It's not all fun and games, or should I say, point and click. A nice shot setup. Look how the yarn matches his eyes? And I miss on the focus.

January Socks

I'm very pleased with these socks even if I can't get the pattern to show up in photos.

I started knitting socks 7 years ago. For a long time socks was pretty much all I knit. But some how once I hit 14 pairs I stopped knitting socks for myself. After all, my 7 year old socks still look like new.

This year I want to change that. I want to knit a pair a month for me to keep. 12 new pairs of socks. Think of the wonder. I'll probably forget by July but I hope to remember to at least knit a pair for myself before knitting a pair for someone else.

I also want to knit 12 sweaters this year too. That might not be as good of an idea. But I did start 2 new ones in January, and now both are stalled. Watch me have 12 new sweater UFOs next December.
