Finally Blocked

Way back in September, I mentioned that progress was slow on the Debbie Bliss jacket. On Friday I finished the sleeves and on Saturday I blocked it. I hope to seam it soon and furthermore, I hope it will fit my 2-year-old for whom it is intended!

New Year

A friend in my knitting group suggested this and I like the idea - cast on a new project every January 1st. My 08-Jan-01 cast-on is a strip for an afghan. The group is knitting strips to be pieced together for afghans for Afghans.

I'm knitting on US 6 needles, co 35 stitches and using KnitPicks Wool of the Andes along with some yarn donated to me for the project.

Also, my knitting new year resolution is to knit something (anything) for myself in 2008.
