Happy New Year!!

Wow, where has 2011 gone?? As I get older the years are starting to pile up faster and faster.

What could New Years be without some Resolutions??  Here are a few of mine.


  1. Get a handle on the housework.
  2. Reorganize my kitchen.
  3. Destash my craft supplies.
  4. Lose weight ( the universal resolution)
  5. Complete 12 WIP's for 2012.
Maybe this a list I can really get behind and accomplish this year.

But there was  a large WIP that I completed December 30, 2011 after 4 1/2 years of work.

Sock Yarn Blanket
5" blocks, 140 blocks. All sock yarn scraps and odd balls. Size US 2, 3mm. needle. I used Shelly Kang's pattern from her blog: The Heathen Housewife. I changed up the pattern by making larger blocks (Cast on 71 Sts. per block), knitting on the diagonal to produce a square blanket and I used a black crochet border. Thank you Shelly for your inspiration.
