Happy New Year!
I've already finished the first project of the year: boot cuffs for my friend Lauren. She was over with her son the other day (my oldest and her son are best friends) and I had finished the knitting. So I seamed them while she was there, and she wore 'em home! She loves them, almost as much as she loves wearing boots.
Now I am a bit obsessed with boot cuffs, and I've cast on a pair of gray ones for my hairdresser, as a little gift since she won't be back at the salon til June. (college coursework) AND THEN I have another pair for a friend, who's insisting on paying me for them. My first for-profit knitting. Not something I've ventured into before, and I don't think I want to make a thing out of it.
So many plans with my yarn and needles this year...I'm making hats, blankets and sweaters for babies at the hospital that the boys were born at for Project Nathaniel, and I've signed up to crank out mittens as part of the Secret Santa program that the local police does every year. But first....time for some things for me! I always cast on one or two things after the new year, to balance out all of the Christmas knitting.
