Newest WIPs

Amazingly, the sun was shining today. I always cope better with winter when the sun shines!

I haven't cast on for anything new in 2008. I have a bunch of stuff to finish off from 2007. I am going to aim to finish a few projects before Chinese New Year (Feb 8), as Grandma always used to say I should start the year with a clean slate and no debts overhanging over my head. I would consider my WIP pile a serious debt!

Here's my newest WIP. Koolhaas hat by Jared Flood (from Interweave's Holiday Knits) in Malabrigo in Stone Blue. This was going to be hubby's Christmas present but it's going to be his first present of 2008. I haven't decided if it needs another repeat before starting the decreases. We'll see.....

I also started Juliet by the Zephr girls. I had every intention of joining the Sexy Knitters Club kniatalong when it started but somehow never got round to it. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I might finish it before the new knitalong starts. I really want Bella Paquita to win so that I can join in again too. (Late of course!)

I must go look up Juliet now. it looks like something I'd like to make. Your hubby's hat is a wonderful pattern as well.

Really love the pattern chosen for hubby's hat.

Juliet is looking great too and look forward to seeing your progress with it. It looks very much like the style my elder daughter would love too ... ooooh am itching to cast on another project now;)
