January

In January I got a case of "finish-it-itis." As you know, when that hits, it is important to run with it. My goal was to finish some ufos (unfinished objects).

As such, I tackled and completed:

a hat for my daughter

 She pointed to a picture she liked and chose her colors and I knit it.

a self-designed, Latvian-inspired hat (begun 4 years ago)

a basic baby hat

a thread crochet cellphone case (at least one year old - no good photo)

a hand-quilted lap quilt (5 years along?)

a baby sweater

And last weekend, I attended a spin retreat and spun up 8 ounces of Frabjous Fibers Polwarth roving.
