New Year

It seems I’m in my Brown Phase right now. The two projects I’m currently working on, having finished my holiday knitting, are both brown. I have, finally, finished the back of my dad’s Fisherman’s Rib sweater:


and I’ve started the front. I’m pleased with the result, but it’s a time-consuming stitch, and I haven’t been working on it as much as I should. I’m going to try to devote a little more time to it in the next month.

I’ve also picked up a sock that I started in the fall. It’s for Mark, and the pair will match his Ridged Rib sweater — hence the continuing brown theme:


I’m itching to start some new projects, though. Once I’ve finished the first sock of the pair I think I’ll transfer it to computer knitting (along with my dad’s sweater) and start something else. Probably another sweater for Mark — I still have lots of yarn for him, and I want to get through it.

This evening we’re going out with some good friends for dinner, and will then probably come back here to celebrate the new year in relaxed fashion. Every year brings both bad and good, but I wish you and yours more of the good times in the year to come, and the strength and support to endure the bad.

Love your father’s socks, they are absolutely lovely.
Happy New Year

PS Please ignore any grammar or spelling errors, am up late finishing some knitting, what else, and it appears to be 2:00 in the morning

Happy new year, Aven! I think the next sweater you knit for Mark should be in rainbow colours — you know, just for a change. :)
