One Down, Twenty To Go
And here we have the first finished project of 2012: Enoble, originally a Mystery KAL I participated in last year. It's knit in two sections and kitchenered together, but I procrastinated the kitchener part until now. I used Handwerks So Soft Sock which is a super luscious blend of merino, cashmere and nylon. I really like this yarn and glad that it along with Silky Sock is a main staple at Handwerks.
This year will be my 3rd year designing for the Handwerks Yarn Club. If you haven't joined before I hope you'll consider. The last 2 years it was strictly socks, but this year it will be one skein projects. Working with Laura at Handwerks truly has been satisfying. It's challenged me and inspired me. I'm really looking forward to branching out beyond designing socks (don't despair sock fans, I may get a sock design out elsewhere). Want to know more about me, the "designer"? Recently Laura wrote up an interview with me on her blog.
So what's up for this year? Well, for starters this is my first submission to both Fiber Arts Friday and FO Friday. With twenty (I know, really?) UFO's I really need some incentive to finish my projects. So thanks to Vivian at Bits and Pieces (see link on side bar) for her inspiration throughout last year and join the party!
