Happy New Year
Wishing blog readers and your friends and family the most wonderful 2021 imaginable. Happy New Year and all the best!
2021 Promises To Be a Happy New Year
When I look back at just the items that I knitted, crocheted and/or spun in 2020, I’m a bit surprised. I count 59 items in total.
And some of them were impressive for various reasons:
- Close To You Shawl in three different yarns
- Fox Paws…I’m still surprised I actually finished this beauty
- Three new pattern designs:
- Not to mention the Black Lives Matter – Fight On Project bag, Hallgrim Scarf, Gridditch Hats and Crosstalk Scarf
I figure if I can accomplish that much in a shitty year, 2021 will be awesome.
This project was technically completed in 2021.
It’s a variation on QueerJoe’s Simple Hat using two leftover colorways of Noro Kureopatora yarn.
I used a technique called helical knitting to make the stripes which I’ll describe a little in the next blog entry. Overall, I wouldn’t recommend the technique. At least not the way I did it.
New Year’s Good Fortune
I always consider how well my latte art is in the morning as an indicator of my day.
If this is any indicator, 2021 will be a good year. But just to make sure, I’ll add a Finn photo of his favorite Christmas gift.
