First FOs for 2008

I've only been knitting for six days this year so my knitting year is less than a week old!

finished objects
* a baby's beanie [in my hand-dyed 8ply/DK on 4.5mm needles]
* a novelty yarn scarf [on 6.0mm needles].

almost finished objects
An adult beanie knitted in two strands of my hand-dyed 8ply/DK on 6.5mm needles. The two strands were not exactly the same but blended together to look like one yarn. I still have to seam this.

on the needles
* the second mitten in hand-dyed 8ply/DK on 3.75mm dpns which I started a couple of days ago
* a baby cardigan in 4ply baby nylon on 3.25mm needles
* a pair of socks on 2.75mm dpns
The last two I started before I was told to stop knitting in December. The smaller sized needles are still difficult for me to handle, so I do one or two rows then move on to something on larger needles - I'll get there eventually. "Slow and steady wins the race": not that I'm racing but I have so many things I want to knit sometimes I wish I had more arms or more hours! LOL

The cardigan and the mittens are going on holidays with me, as are several skeins of hand-dyed, four pattern books and an assortment of needles [plus the scissors, darning needle and tape measure of course]. Plus the ice packs for first aid when I overdo it in my excitement at knitting again!!


  1. Glad to see you're able to be productive (with needles and yarn, and not just dyes at any rate Lynn.

  2. Great you are knitting again!

  3. Have a great hokiday. Good to see you knitting again. Take it easy

  4. I understand that race feeling - so many patterns - so little time! Have a lovely holiday

  5. Absolutely fabulous. Definitely slow and steady right. So do we get to see the beanies and scarf, I'd love to see them.

  6. Happy knitting birthday! I'm glad that you're still easing back into the knitting -- slow and steady does it :) I can't wait to see pictures of the FOs.
