Happy New Year

After a very successful, and busy sale at Filati we closed the store at 3pm for New Year’s Eve. I have to admit that I came home and after a cup of tea took out ALL the unfinished projects and lined them up on the floor of the sitting room. It was scary!!!!! So I have made a promise to myself to complete all the sweaters in various stages before I start knitting the two new sweaters for Alan. Poor Alan he got two bags of yarn complete with patterns and an IOU for Christmas so these have to be my next new projects. So on that note I started knitting the front of an Alice Starmore sweater that has been on needles for about 18 months and thoroughly enjoyed going back to fingering weight yarn. I do have two jackets, a Rowan and a Noro both I have mentioned before which need sleeves knitted and now of course I have a Debbie Bliss jacket on needles because I had to start that one too…. So I need tunnel vision to just work on the UFO’s for the next few weeks.
My copy of YARN arrived from Adelaide, Australia and it seems like a nice magazine. The second issue will be out in March so I am looking forward to getting that either from my Mum or via a subscription. I do hope it is successful because it is nice to see knitting becoming so exciting all over the world.
Well I wish you all a very happy New Year one which is peaceful and yet exciting

Best wishes
