Happy New Year to you all.
We survived yet another dumping of snow, receiving 12 more inches and thankfully no more power outages. We are now settling into a deep freeze with temps with the wind chill at -39 C. Brrrr!!!
Pretty soon T will be walking level with the roof of her play house!
During December I worked hard to finish most of my WIPs. I succeed in finishing all but one! All I need to do is get some pictures so you can expect some FO’s coming shortly.
T had the chance to try out her new snow shoes on a family trek.
She did well and made it all the way around the loop with only a little bit of whining…
Since I was good and finished off my old projects I allowed myself to cast on a new project. While my winter boots are still in good condition on the outside, the insides are getting rather worn down and cold on the tootsies. I am going to try out some felt insoles to see if that helps but I also want some thicker socks.
I forgot just how quickly worsted socks work up!
The pattern is Rye by TinCanKnits and I’m using some Patons Classic Wool that I have had in my stash for a long time. The colourway is Bright Red.
Rye is a free pattern and would be excellent for a first time sock knitter.
I cast on New Years Eve and cast off the first one New Years Day. I’m hoping to have the pair finished in the next day or two. I can just feel those toasty toes!
Have you started a new project for a new year yet?
