On the Needles – December 28, 2012

It’s our last “On the Needles” post for 2012.  I love closing out a year and starting a new one.

Still haven’t gotten to the heel on the 2nd sock but I’m close.  There’s a chance these, my 13th pair for 2012, will be finished in time but a better chance they’ll be my 1st pair finished in 2013.  Because Photostream seems to be not playing nice again, I’ll just share last week’s picture.  Not much has changed . . with the exception of the orange cowl.  I gave up.  I couldn’t even get the yarn off the needles I had such a mess so the yarn, the needles . . the whole thing went in the trash!  I’ve never done that before but it was very freeing.  It’s gone! It’s outta here and I’m happy!

    Isn’t it amazing how relieved you feel when you occasionally allow yourself the luxury of ridding yourself of something that could become a millstone around your neck … especially when you just KNOOW it will!

      I wish I were brave enough to try socks maybe in 2013! I am into the ruffled scarves!

    My husband’s socks that were LAST year’s Christmas present are almost finished. I bought three skeins from The Painted Tiger’s Pre Inventory sale. I can’t wait to get the grape colored skein in to make myself another pair!
