Last post of 2013!

I personally would like to say that I am completely and totally happy to see 2013 go. It’s been a rough year and 2014 looks like it will be much better. I believe in cosmic balance and predict that 2014 will be absolutely amazing to make up for 2013.

Today will be a short post; I haven’t been feeling well so you just get a quick update on the knitty things going on.
I had a friend commission a hat for his daughter. The requirements were purple, soft and warm. Something that an 8-year-old, independent, little woman would like. At first I was a bit stumped. It has been a long time since I was eight; I am sure things have changed a bit. Working with what I had, I went to the LYS and took pictures of all the soft, warm, purple yarn they had and emailed them to said clientele. After the purple had been picked, things sort of fell into place. Friend and his wife also wanted black and white so the hat would fit with her current snow suit. BAM! This is what I came up with…

I really liked it; I am tempted to make myself one.

I did have some yarn left over and I may make her a matching scarf or cowl. I dropped off the hat today because they wanted it before the New Year, but I will see what I can do with the leftovers. If there isn’t enough for a scarf, maybe I could swing fingerless mittens or something. I’ll have to sit down and try it.
Grandmother’s sweater is on hold until I feel better. It isn’t the kind of thing you can do while your mind is only half on it. You need all your marbles in one basket to work on that thing or else you’re getting into a cabeltastrophy.
With those short comments I bring 2013 to a close, GOOD RIDDANCE!! I wish you all fitness, friendliness and fantastic fiber in the New Year!
