Out with the old...

This will be my final post for 2008....I've been looking back to see how many projects I have finished knitting this is the countdown:
55 dishcloths
11 socks
1 sweater
1 shawl
1 blanket
1 scarf
2 hats
a grand total of 76 items for the year of 2008

I plan to keep track for 2009 as well. There will be less dishcloths as I have decided to knit only the patterns from the MonthlyDishcloths group, even though I belong to 3. I hope to finish more pairs of socks and perhaps a few more larger items. We shall see.

I have a few items that I hope to finish in the next week or two as well--the second Central Park Hoodie (for Megan), a chunky knit One Row Scarf (from Yarn Harlot), and the
Halema`uma`u Socks (kit from The Loopy Ewe).

I'm off for the evening to knit.

I hope 2009 is a wonderful year for everyone!

Snow Day!

So...on Tuesday of this past week, this is what it looked like in the afternoon. We got anywhere from 2 to 4 inches. So of course school was called off for Tuesday and Wednesday. It was kinda nice. But we are off now for two weeks for Christmas break...til Jan 5th.

This is our Christmas tree this year. Bought this tree last year and it is prelit. I really like that part.
I finished up 12 of these Feather and Fan dishcloths for presents this month. These are the last two. I have wrapped the others and forgot to take a picture of them all.
This is the last dishcloth of the year for the Monthly Dishcloths yahoo group. I think it is a poinsettia design. They have not posted the name yet.
Now it is time to get back to finishing up the green Central Park Hoodie for Megan. TTFN!!!

Dishcloth update

Still on a dishcloth binge...This is the Snowman Stamp dishcloth from the December KAL with ShirleysKnittingKnook yahoo group. I should have made a couple or three stitches on the edges garter stitch so it would not roll up.
This is called Grandmother's Favorite Snowman dishcloth. This was the December KAL for the MonthlyDishcloths yahoo group.
Links are in the sidebar for the patterns. Although, this snowman pattern had some serious flaws which I was unwilling to rip out and try to make it right. Hopefully, she gets it corrected soon. More updates later...
