Today I CO the main project my wonderful swapper sent to me. I am knitting with Caron Simply Soft in a vibrant red colour. I wanted to bring in the New Year knitting something for myself for a change (not a scarf LOL). I am pleased with the colour of this yarn and with the texture of the knitting so far. This is going to be a nice drapey shawl and it will be lovely and soft. (Updates and pics to follow as I go along.)
Also, I had those Christmas crackers this year (you know the ones with the stupid looking hat and the toy and a joke inside fancy foil that when you pull it open makes a popping noise). In a few of them there were these clear plastic clips that open enough for a few sheets of paper. I took one of these and glued it to the wall beside my little laptop table(where I sit to do most of my knitting) and now I have my pattern (in a protective plastic sleeve supplied by my swapper) hanging from the hook. It is at the right height so I can easily read it. I even used the hot glue gun to attach it, so it will come off fairly easily if it has to.
I am ready to start the New Year!!!
