wrapping up 2009 with one more finished project.
pattern: peter easy, size L for my dad
yarn: stonehedge fiber mill’s shepherd’s wool, 3.5 skeins
needles: clover no. 8 bamboo 16″ circulars
comments: pattern was a breeze to knit. my dad’s been dropping some serious hints over the years about how i haven’t knit him a sweater so this project was long overdue. it fits him well and i hope it gets a lot of use.
pattern: “stormy weather quilt” from layer cake, jelly roll and charm quilts
fabrics: layer cake of moda charisma by chez moi
comments: the fabric was a gift from my mother just after i moved to chicago. i’m tremendously slow with quilts so my aim is to have this done as a christmas gift for her this year.
a lot of people are doing 2009 reflection posts/new year’s resolutions. for some reason, i’m not feeling very reflective lately, although i may do one later in the month when i’ve had more time to ruminate. but general resolution for 2010: just get sh*t done. i had a great trip home but spent a surprisingly large amount of it sleeping. guess my body needed it but i’m still very slow coming out of my post-vacation stupor. i hope y’all had a wonderful holiday and that 2010 is getting off to a fantastic start!
