Well, we got here, friends: 2007. I like the James Bond link, Catherine. I’m taken aback by how many people, in the Blogs I read, seem to have found Ought Six a tough one. I can ask for no more, for ourselves, than more-of-the-same – but I hope those affected see a marked improvement this year.
The storms in Edinburgh yesterday which forced the concellation of the street party, make our glorious Christmas weather in Strathardle seem all the more miraculous.
One of my New Year practices is to make a hasty list in Lotus Organiser of what I hope to knit in the year to come. Not resolutions, by any stretch of the imagination; just sweeping out the mind to see what’s there. Most years, quite a bit of it gets knit.
Here’s what I wrote down yesterday:
finish Alexander's Calcutta Cup sweater
finish Ketki's gansey
do some more Princess
Koigu for small boys -- perhaps another Wallaby
KF, perhaps Ravenna
Bog jacket in Malabrigo
Hiawatha stole in Jade Sapphire cashmere
something with the Cherry Tree Hill suri alpaca I bought at Stitches East in ’02
I have two proper KF kits which I-mean-to-knit-one-day (as well as other KF’s that I have bought for the yarn, not the design). One is the vest based (I think) on a mosaic floor from Ravenna, and the other, the Green Granite Blocks jacket from “California Patches”.
Looking at them in the cupboard just now revealed a bag of Louet Gems Merino oddballs…let’s get started on the ’07 knitting! But first, I must wash the breakfast dishes.
