The first week of January is coming to an end and it’s odd how quickly the holidays have faded – it feels like it should be much farther along than January 9th! But I’m quite all right with having more knitting time ahead in the month, because I’d like to finish something new at the beginning of 2015, and there are no shortage of things to work on. In addition to considering some Unfinished Projects cast aside in 2014 and (gulp) earlier, I’ve got other design ideas kicking around in my head that have been there for a few months.
At least one of them is moving forward though, as the swatches from last week are starting to take shape in actual knitted form. I’m enjoying how this is coming together so far, and am planning some time with it this weekend for sure.
My Pi Shawl is also still hovering patiently in the background. I took it out for a spin to a viewing of The Imitation Game last weekend (and later managed to recover some dropped stitches done in the last few minutes of dark theatre knitting, phew), so if I can make it out to some more flicks pre-Oscars then I think this might have a shot at being done by the spring. Pi Shawls, you can’t knit just one, am I right?
I hope you’re getting some nice knitting time in for you as well this coming weekend – especially if you have a lot of holiday knitting to recover from. Happy Friday!
