So let's get started. I have pictures to show and am so proud of what I have accomplished in the past 3 weeks.
This is not the greatest picture but this is the man's Turn a Square hat by Jared Flood. I love this pattern and do it in the magic loop method. The yarn is Impeccable by Loops and Threads. This is one great yarn to work with. It is an all acrylic yarn but knits up so nice and doesn't split. I have used this a lot for winter wear for all of my family that lives in the southern/west part of the USA. The northern family gets wool wear. Since it gets so much colder up there.
Hubby also got me a nice gift certificate to my LYS as well as signed me up for a class making cuff down magic loop socks. I have been doing toe up for several years now and am looking forward to learning the other method. Then I will have my choice of which way I do them. And before you ask.......................yes I have done the Kirtchner close before and I have no fear of it. In fact I find it rather easy to do.
I have also updated my YoP list and here it is. Notice that I have not deleted anything or added anything to the list. Just updated what was going on with it.

I have been very blessed this past year and look forward to 2012. Thanks to all my crafting friends who read my blog and comment on it. Thanks to all my family/friends who tolerate reading my blog but never comment. (hint hint)
I must go and continue taking down the Christmas decorations (yes, I know it is the middle of January but I have been kind of lazy this year)
