When it comes to knitting, this is more a demand than a statement. The UFOs in my knitting basket have demanded that I finish them off, and so I've been working to do that, even if it means I'm ridiculous behind on my sewing and magazine reading (I'm just now reading the December 2008 Yoga Journal, but we won't even discuss how behind I am on my Texas Parks & Wildlife Magazine and Texas Monthly).
Let's start at the top:
A trendy, slouchy beret made from Joann's Sensations Licorice in a cutie, fruity colorway.
A pair of basic socks I made from OnLine Hiking colors that I started on vacation (in September, no less).
I've also made a basic 2x2 rib watchcap for one of my BILs and I've made plenty of headway on my lace ribbon scarf, but all of this knitting is preparation for the big kahuna: my first sweater.
Am I excited? Am I scared? A little bit of both.
