RM and I haven't really celebrated New Year's since the birth of my son. Face it, we're tired and would rather sleep. Well, even though we were down in San Diego for a wedding on New Year's, we didn't make it to midnight. Since we had a morning flight back home, we left the party around 10 and were fast asleep by 11. Maybe someday, right? The wedding was beautiful, and it was wonderful to see my best friend from college get married and to be a part of it. Congratulation R and M!! Many long years of married bliss to you both! I did get to work on my Ruffles Scarf while traveling. I'm almost through the first skein of Calmer. I also decided to switch needles. I was using my Denise set, but now have switched to my Clover bamboo circ, and am zipping along. I've decided to start another pair of socks after the scarf is completed. I think I'm going to cast on for the Jaywalkers. I also want to start a new sweater. I'm in the Angelica KAL, but the yarn I've chosen is a cotton blend. It's stormy and ugly outside, so I don't feel like working with cotton. I do, however, have 10 skeins of Knitpicks WOA in a beautiful Cranberry color which is just begging to be knit. I'm thinking Bonne Marie's Twist. I'm going to swatch for it today. Exciting! Oh, and remember that Mexico yarn I spun up from the roving the Boy and I Kool-Aid dyed? Well, I finished spinning it, and plied it. I used my Zebrawood Bosworth midi to spin it, and then plied it with my Cascade Little Si spindle. What do you think? I think I'm going to knit a hat out of it. I like how it turned out, though I think I've got a lot to learn about making my spinning even.
