Curse you 2010...

...don't let the door hit you on the way out.

2010 has been the worst year of my life, and as an appropriate ending to a dreadful year, I have just returned from 6 hours at the ER. I'll be so happy to see this one go, and I have high hopes that 2011 will be better. It simply has to.

The knitting wasn't bad, really. I never showed you my finished Clapotis. Here she is, blocking.


Details:
Pattern: Clapotis
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Lion & Lamb, 3.2 skeins
Colorway: Embers
Needles: US #8
Comments: This is my second Clapotis, all for me! Love the colors. Grays, blacks, reds, with bits of purplish goodness. It's aptly named. And look at how gorgeously it pooled!

Started in the old year, to be finished in the new year: first ever 2 at a time toe up socks. Using leftover yarn because of stashbusting. They were fiddly at first, but I think I'm getting the hang of the method. May use it more often on single color designs. Probably won't make a habit out of knitting multi-colored patterns two at a time. Too much tangling.


So... I'll see you in the new year. May 2011 treat us well, be kinder to us than 2010 was, and bring much joy to everyone.

Beautiful Clapotis!

May 2011 be 1,000 times better for you than 2010.

Thank you for an always-interesting blog. Yours is one of my favorites.

Happy New Year!

beautiful socks. wonderful how you can take some left overs and make something out of them, isn't it?

Everything in our life gets made into something, love, joy, happiness, (or anger, sadness. destruction.

Knitting help us make the peices into oneness and into beauty, (and into practial socks!)
hope the next year give you more yarn, and less of a need for it!
