One of my 2011 Resolutions is to become a monogamous knitter. That does not, however, preclude me from starting new projects. It just means that I can only work on that project until it is done. Thank goodness for that, because I know now that I could not work on just my current WIPs and be happy. Those I plan to intersperse between new projects until they are complete.
My first WIP of the new year is a pair of Hederas using Cookie A.‘s new book Knit.Sock.Love. I am participating in the Knit.Sock.Love group KAL on Ravelry and hope to finish all of the socks this time around, with a few replacements (we’re allowed four). I already know I won’t be making Gothic Spire (Ravelry link) socks because I tried that before and it did not end well, lol. All of those wrapped stitches using DPNs were a disaster. I’m leaning toward making some Rhiannon socks (Ravelry link), but I will know for sure when that month begins.
In addition, for all of the socks except ones that I don’t have enough yarn for (i.e. knee socks) the yarn has to come from stash. Not surprisingly, I have enough yarn to make every pair of socks in this KAL except for one. I think this will work out well. Less yarn, more socks. It’s a win-win.
