I thoroughly love everything that was in this box. The mittens fit perfectly, no joke. Click on through to see what was in the box. I put a ton of notes on the stuff. Thank you so much, Holly!

Had a bad Monday?

Have a look at some cute stuff.

And booties to match., originally uploaded by Wileycomma.

I finished these over the past week. The hat is Woolywormhead's Baby Tri-peak hat, and the booties are Oh Baby!Baby booties. I have some comments about the pattern on one of my Flickr photos. I think the hat will be going to Baby Jack, along with the rest of the stuff I need to finish and mail to BC. I just really wanted to knit the booties after doing the hat, so I think I'm going to give those to my roommate's relative who will be having a baby in a few months. I think the purple/brown colors are pretty gender neutral, but correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm so pleased that I finally got better pooling knitting this yarn as a hat. I tried three or four times as a sock and I was not pleased. The stripes work. I hope Jack's bean isn't too big!

Knits from 2008

2008 knits, originally uploaded by Wileycomma.

This is about a week late, but I've been busy enjoying time off from school and everything.

Click on over to flickr to see what I've finished.

What I hope to accomplish in 2009 is:
knit 12 socks (a sock a month, six pairs, hopefully)
get proper photos of my finished objects ( I still need to get modeled shots of Thorpe and my Tangled Yoke Cardigan)
Here's probably the number one thing, spend a bit more time studying than web surfing.

I did fairly well for my first semester of college, but seeing some of my friends not do so well in a couple classes really makes me not want to be anywhere near that.

I would also like to read more this year. The internet has largely taken up my reading time. Sure, the usual text book reading, but I want to finish some of the novels that have been piling up the last year or two. I keep buying books to read and I never have any time. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd like some input.

Here's to a wonderful year, everyone!
