Hapy New Year - Let The Knitting Begin

Yes, it's time to knit some more although I never really stopped. These are some of the little things I worked on over the holidays although I don't know who the recipients will be just yet.

Both of these hats are really warm for our freezing weather and I haven't decided weather the blue one should have ear flaps or not.

These socks are for me, a girl can never have enough of them me thinks...the pattern is called Lombard Street Socks and can be found here and I found them through another blogger, sorry I don't remember who anymore. I particularly like this pattern because it's not done from a chart. I am still a real dodo when it comes to charts, I just can't figure them out and prefer reading the pattern. Nowadays though it reduces immensely what is available to me.

All ready to go walking...

This bit of yarn was left over from some ankle socks I made in the summer and make great little wrist warmers. They are nice for me and reduce the pain of arthritis somewhat...maybe it's all in my mind.

These little socks are for baby Ellie and I did post them on my "spouting off" blog, but what the heck, here they are again.

I am still working on my pink shawl in Alpaca Wool blend that I started last year and am trying to do at least two full pattern rounds a day, that's eight rows. I have also started a little lacy cardigan in royal blue using Rowan Cotton Wool and I'm almost done with the back. Maybe I'll have some photos soon.

Everything you have done is lovely but my favorites are those little wristlets! They are so very pretty! Its cold there and here we have had record highs. Not that I'm complaining ;)

Jan, thank you for your comments. I like those wristlets too. I'm really trying to finish a cardi now but darn it, my hands really hurt...

Looks like your a great knitter. I like to knit also, but even after many years, I'd still say I'm a novice. Mostly, I just knit simple afghans, scarves and the occasional hat. But I do like those wrist warmers.

Thank you for your kind comments concerning the loss of my mother. I send you my sympathy also on loosing your mother. I haven't had the opportunity to visit my mother's grave yet. It's several hours away. I look forward to visiting with her there, but I have to say, there isn't a day goes by that I don't talk to her and imagine her voice answering me.

Carla, your welcome...I too still talk to Mom daily, every time I walk into her room I trick myself into thinking she's just gone for a walk. Knitting is what keeps me sane right now..
Omega mum, thanks for stopping by, stay tuned for more knitting pictures...
