I didn't knit yesterday. That strikes me, now on day 2 of the new year, as odd.  I knit on New Years Eve, starting a pair of socks at S&K's party as I always seem to.  They always throw a great party and I always seem to have wrapped up all of my portable knitting, frantically having finished it for the holidays and whatnot. So I grab whatever skein is handy and stuff it in a project bag and, sitting at their kitchen bar, cast on what is both my last and first knitting.

This year, it's Baah! La Jolla in the Purple colorway. Perhaps not the most fascinating of names but it's accurate.

I bought this yarn from Loopy in Chicago when they were still carrying Baah! I was disappointed that they stopped carrying it, the colors just scream at you from the wall and then you want all of them.  Fortunately, there are other sources.

I've not made any knitting resolutions this year. There's the vague general wish of getting the stash a little smaller so it fits more neatly into it's bins rather than my precariously setting the lids on and hoping.  I've had some thoughts about hats and mittens and fingerless gloves. Of course, I've knit two hats in the past week (a new one for me and one for my massage therapist, more on those later) so perhaps that bug has worn off a bit. And more washcloths, as I try to work through the cotton. But overall I'm just looking forward to seeing what I have, making pretty things, etc.

Hope you're off to a wonderful new year!!
