This year is ending on a high note. And, by virtue of the new year coming immediately after the old one, it is starting on that same note. To end the old and ring in the new, we are doing our family cioppino night and I am starting 2 new Knit Alongs.
Cioppino is a given. We do it every year and look forward to it all year long. The recipe will be posted, if it isn't already, on the kitchen blog soon.
The KALs on the other hand, aren't something I do very often. These 2 will be my 3rd and 4th.
The first one is hosted by my friends Jewelspurls Sheriffofknittingham and Wrappedaroundmyfinger . A group of us on Ravelry are going to be knitting Norwegian garments. The ones I will be working on are a Hat and Gloves .
The second KAL is an impromtu thing. It came about from a comment on another message board at Ravelry. One of the members Phro5gg said that in 2010 she wanted to knit 12 pairs of socks. That was one I could get on top of! A pair of socks each month for the entire year. Don't have to buy a thing to accomplish that one. Sock yarn stash - beware! The first pair are Thuja, designed by Bobby Ziegler for Knitty.com. They should take very little time and make one of the men in my life very happy.
So, here's to a new year, right around the corner. Here's to knitting with friends. Here's to being an active member of these KALs and playing well with others.
