New Socks

Just finished knitting these for the Sock a month Kal. In the nick of time.

These are the Monkey Socks by Cookie A. using Araucania Ranco. Love this yarn.

New Hat and 2008 Goals

Here is the Half Pipe Hat from the new Son of Stitch and Bitch book. M saw this and had to have it. This was a really quick knit. I had it done in one day. He was so excited about it. Of course, this led to DH asking me for a hat as well. He got a basic toboggan with ribbing and then stockinette stitch. Also done in one day. So I guess, this weekend was Hat knitting. LOL.

My goals for 2008:

1. Learn Entrelac
2. Scrap at least twice a week - I would love to get 5 pages done a week (so far so good, I have 5 done for this week.)
3. Finish my Katharine Hepburn Cardigan
4. Learn to knit socks toe up
5. Exercise at least 3 times a week
6. Cook healthier meals
7. Knit from my stash (I will allow for a small yarn purchase every 3 months)
8. Knit at least 8 pair of socks this year (one of these days, I won't own any store bought socks).

Hmm, these are pretty doable I think. Let's hope I can keep up with them. At least they are here for all the world to see, that should help keep me on track.
