Stepping into 2013

I have a confession to make: I did not finish Christmas presents on time.  However, this year I'm going to try very hard to knit up all of those presents and get them finalized, wrapped, and shipped before Christmas so all my friends and family can open their new hand-knit gift on Christmas morning.  So, how will I be able to accomplish all of this knitting?  I will be starting Christmas knitting: right now!  Now I have no excuses for not getting presents done on time! :) :P

Anyways, I'm still in Florida and I will be flying home to rainy Oregon on Sunday.  I'm sad to be leaving the nice weather but it will be nice to get back home and start my first sweater!  Yep, I will be knitting up the Owls Sweater with my fellow knitter and raveler Hasol!  First, I will need to take a trip to Twisted, a very nice yarn store in Portland.  The yarn I'm going to get is going to be a dark gray, in bulky weight.  I can't wait to begin!  My new nickel plated needles are ready to go.

  1. Oooh, I love the Owls Sweater. Perfect choice for a first sweater! I knit it up in a dark grey/brown, and I will give you this word of warning -- the darker the yarn the less apparent the owls are! I would suggest going with a light or medium grey instead of a dark grey. It's sad to spend all that time knitting such cute owls only to not be able to see them very well.

    I'm jealous that you get a few more days in Florida! It's been really cold here in Portland, so prepare yourself!
