…marc is due home in the morning from a ten day trip to asia. the day he left I had grand plans for finishing projects (my december journal, 2012’s first one little word prompt, maybe even a photobook from our mexico trip and certainly I’d get my yarn room organized and my photo album updated), starting a few (a birthday gift for katie’s mother-in-law-to-be and the two charity hats I hope to have finished before the month ends), getting the last of the holidays swept away and generally being in a great place to start the new year.
ten days later I haven’t finished any of those projects, but I did make a good start on this year’s one little word prompt. I watched an entire season of downton abbey while I finished a shawl…and I started five new knitting projects – two for shop KALs, one charity hat, that birthday gift and one maggiknits…and today, I couldn’t help myself.
I started one more.
seriously, I’m smitten with the new shibui heichi yarn – it’s a rustic silk. gorgeous colors. worsted weight (it knits up pretty quickly) and the patterns in this book are stunning. I want to knit the entire book in those four colors – plus another medium brown I’ve asked theresa to order. all before summer hits.
(I might need help!)
