hatty new year1 January 2009
Pattern: Lace Tam by Lois Young, from A Gathering of Lace (ravel it)
Yarn: Jamieson’s Double Knitting in Sholmit, 2 skeins (almost exactly)
Needles: Addi turbo US 4 16″ circular
Yarn: Debbie Bliss SoHo, colorway unknown (old stash), almost 2 skeins
Needles: US 11 Brittany DPNs
Tams don’t really suit me (notice how the photos are rear views), but they’re fun to knit. Both were blocked drastically over my big round platter.
WIP update: I’m loving the cowl, and I’ll post pictures here soon. The Professor’s socks are finished; he describes them as “Incredible! Toasty warm and custom fit.” I’m cranking away on the gift knitting.
Tomorrow, I’ll post details of our New Year’s Eve dinner menu (too delicious not to share). Best wishes for an amazing and wonderful 2009!
