i'm supposed to be concentrating on preparing for a certain birthday party.... and i keep getting sidetracked by a possible knitting project for me, and food. how's that for focus? haha. it's ok. i'll smack myself soon and get cracking on the cake... but right now i'm gonna seriously consider a little selfish knitting.
with all of the knitting for the market, and then chrsitmas, i miss seeing something for me coming off of those needles.. and really, i think it's time i snuck one in. i really do need to be working on a sweater sample for a class, but i can do that at the same time... want to see what i'm going to make for myself?
this is "kathleen" by jane richmond (of course) ;) and i just so happened to buy a skein of cascade 220 in sparrow/grey-green just for this project! as soon as i saw jane swatching for this project at one of our knit nights, i knew i had to knit whatever it was she was working on ;) thankfully it's a toque that i can easily squeeze in for selfish knitting while i'm working on store samples. hahah. but in all seriousness, we're going to be headed to alberta in mid january. a toque will be needed. and this will be perfect. also, i had decided that 2012 will have lots of selfish knitting involved... so i'd better start.
oh and something else that i've just stumbled upon while procrastinating? this.
this is "kentmere" by lily kate france. i think i need to knit one of these too. this designer girl is only 14 or 15 i think! holy talent. love it!
and for those of you who are local to me... thought about any selfish knitting for the new year? i've got a ton of classes lined up... the very first one is a beginner's knitting class... perfect for those of you whose goals are to learn to knit! check out the cloth castle for a full list of classes.
as for my little man turning 4? i think i'm just delaying the planning because maybe that will slow down his bday? probably not, i know... and i really should focus.... haha thankfully, the hubs is still home on holidays, so we can tackle this together. i'm not worried....yet :)
how are you doing? over your turkey hangover, and ready to begin tackling goals for 2012? i'm already on my second cup of coffee... and i'm all ears! let's chat! xo
