Starting the new year – creating what I want to create all year

Some people believe you should spend the 1st day of a new year doing those things you want to have in your life all year.  For me, that will be casting on a new knitting project.  I’m using stash yarn that’s very yummy and knitting Stucco by Rose Beck.  I hope that all goes well in case the belief is true so my knitting goes smoothly this year.

Last year, my first yarn/pattern combination was a major fail.  The yarn was too fine for the pattern and needle combination.  I also had trouble following the lace pattern.  In 2013, I had one other knitting oops – my Monkey Socks, pattern by Cookie A, is still in time out.

So, here’s to a new year and new (and hopefully successful) knitting adventures!

Also, check out my tips page – I just added a new video on knitting backwards.
