I have a feeling…

that it’s going to be a good year…
But first, let me wish you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I wish you all the best, good health, lots of fun, lots of knitting time, and that your dreams come true.
I had so much fun since Christmas, and I feel so positive. So many good things happened; I met friends that I haven’t seen in a while, I have finally finished the socks:

the first FO of the year, yay!

the Chilly Podsters are knitting up so fast:

and when I have put the pattern of the Amalia cowl and hat on Ravelry (it’s free) so many knitters liked and downloaded it (I was overjoyed):

I can’t wait to see them knitted by others!

Cheers,
Mimi

No poncho for Mimi this year

It’s always so frustrating when life ruins my plans. I was hoping to knit and wear a poncho this autumn but I have so much to study and so much homework to do and it’s already mid-November, that’s not going to happen. Either this year is harder than the previous or I’m loosing my motivation and energy, however after doing my tasks very little or no time is left for knitting. It’s hard, it’s cruel, it’s life.
Here’s what I have done till now:

And here are the socks from the green variegated yarn:


I hope to have more to show next week.

Cheers,
Mimi

Rainy days

The autumn has arrived, the rainy days had started, melancholy is in the town. But isn’t everything so bad and sad, my classes are keeping me busy and in my free time I manage to do enough knitting to feel good about myself. I have finished my One cable mitts and even knitted an ear warmer / head band from the leftover.

I like the yarn and purchased two more skeins for socks, one more from the same purplish and one variegated green:

It’s already finished, but didn’t took photos yet. To use up all the yarn and to prevent running out of it knitted the socks toe up and simultaneously.

Also finished with swatching for the Cabled poncho

cast on and managed to knit circa 8 cm, that is 13 %, so there is hope to finish it in time to wear it this autumn. Photos later, when there will be more to see.

Finally made some stitch markers, just need to buy rings to put them on:

I have so many ideas, it’s so hard not to cast on for more projects.

Cheers,
Mimi
