I've actually got my queue down to just one page now, and from it I can now see what is in there ( besides shawls ) .
So I've gotten rid of (sniff) lots of my queued shawls , as John says , how many shawls does one need. He is right, I know. So it's on to hats, and mittens, and gloves, and boy sweaters, and Christmas balls and snowflakes. It feels good to have a knitting agenda now, instead of frivolous cowtail chase knitting. I know what I want and need to knit, and I'm all over it.
The first pic is a hat that's been in my queue for years ! I'm so happy with myself, It's Gundrun Johnston's Norie, and I am altering it a little to fit my 7 yearold boy who has lots of pretty curly hair, and wears a slouch hat like nobody's business. Then I can't wait to make one for myself.
Jack has also picked out some of my new Wollmeise order (or should I say freight ) just arriving yesterday. He has a fantastic eye for colour combinations ! He chose Blue Curacao and Wasabi for a splendid Gathering Stripes II sweater.
The next is my first mystery knitalong, by Kirsten Kapur. We're up to clue 3 now. I linked it up in a previous post.. as well as my Ochre Sweater, which now has sleeves ! Thank goodness, that yoke was a killer. I purl like a granny with arthritis. Seriously.
And have you seen Westknits Mystery KAL ? OOoooooH I can't wait . And yes, John, then no more shawls. :)
Linking up with Yarn Along . Happy Knitting !
