As the clocked counted down to midnight I knew I could get it done. I could feel it - the last knit of the year was about to be finished! They counted down to New Year.... 10...9...8...7...6...5...4...3..2....1 Happy New Year! And I just wasn't quite done... so this is officially my first knit of 2009 - finished about 12:05 am
Pattern: Noro Two Row Scarf by Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed fame
Yarn: Noro Kureyon in colors 195 and 157
Needles: Size US 7 Addi Turbos
I know I know - it's a fad knit and everyone is making one - but I had the yarn and I just cast on!
I love it!! The ribbing makes it squishy and awesome.
My second knit of the year was the "One Day Beret". I knit this in one day - on New Years Day!
Pattern: One Day Beret by Kirsten Kapur
Yarn: My first handspun spun on my friend Nicol's wheel
Needles: Size US 9 Addi Turbos
I decided that I needed to actually knit with my handspun this year. So far I've really just been spinning it and then petting it once a while as it sits in a basket. Well my basket is overflowing! So I started with the first skein of handspun I ever made and knit this hat!
I love the increases at the top...
I have really cool stuff to show you - more handspun and *gasp* crochet! Stay tuned!
