Wanna Be My Buddy?

I've been very, very lax in my knitting here lately. Ridiculous when you think of what all I have on the needles. Although most of my Christmas knitting is finished. THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN TO ME AGAIN!!!! You either? Got a plan? I do!!!!! Read through the bottom and see what you think of my plan of action.

Mystic Waters is finished and blocking. I really am looking forward to wearing this one, it is so beautiful and I love the fact that it is triangular. :) Mine measures 86" across the top and 46" from point to base.








I received the neatest Christmas Around the World swap package today all the way from England. Ronnie included some beautiful antique trinket boxes, some lovely yarn she dyed herself, and two sets of antique knitting needles, one set of straights from the 1950's and one set of dpns from the 1940's. A pattern book, some ornaments and a really, really cute Gnome she knitted. I love it. If you have the chance check out her blog, she has some absolutely beautiful things she has made.

Now for the big plan. Loribird said something that got me to thinking. Why not start a Knit Along, of sorts, that starts in January and goes throughout the year. Every month the focus will be on something different, i.e. January - mittens/gloves, February - scarves, March - hats, etc. Anyways, if you think you would be interested check out "A Loose Knit Group". You can be my knitting buddy and I can be yours!!!! :)

Ah, the shawl is gorgeous! Great job! And I'll bet you're just itching for more...

Thank you so much for taking the initiative with the Yahoo group - I really didn't mean to flake on you, it's been absolute madness and winter storms here. I'm in, though!

Beautiful shawl! And that KAL is a great idea. It's just too bad that I have a hard time thinking up what to make people until it's too late. I'll have to remedy that.

Mystic Waters is dropdead gorgeous!!! It is more beautiful than I had even imagined it would be. I love this shawl and I will likely be buying the pattern today. I will be signing up for your KAL as I cannot resist the idea of being your buddy!

Thanks for posting about the group! I am definitely thinking about jumping on the bandwagon. It's an awesome idea and I really want to knit gifts next year instead of running out at the last minute and buying everything.

Thank you, your shawl is also very beautiful, just a tad smaller than mine :)

Your shawl is lovely!! I had to put mine on hold but will be getting it out in the new year. I joined the kal. What a brilliant idea!
