The entrelac went down to the wire, but yesterday I cast on a basic scarf in Kureyon. I even learned to knit backwards, which caused about 2.5 seconds of pure panic when I suddenly couldn't remember which way I "normally" wrapped yarn.
A loud shriek and a huge welling of panic ensued. How could this be?
Fortunately, I just told myself that no matter what, I could always knit into the back loop, and then my muscle memory recovered itself.
As far as 2009 knitting resolutions, I don't have any major ones, except for the following:
would like towill keep my craft room tidy.* It is a true luxury to have a craft room of my own, one that isn't the dining room table, a closet, the basement, or a corner of the guest room. I need to be more worthy of such a space.
- I will knit 12 charity items this year, probably focusing on pet squares.
- I will finish the Calliope jacket I cast on back in May and the chenille ballet sweater I cast on back in April.
- I will knit
one twothree pairs of socks.
*The power of language, folks. It's a serious thing.
