Oh Cool – I just finished the redo of this vest for my sister and learned something new at the same time. I learned how to do the attached I-Cord edging – it looks sooo much better! It was so easy!!

The picture doesn’t do the colors of this Manos yarn justice. Plus it looks a little funny because it’s on my blocking wires – but you get the idea. I'm Knitting as fast as I can was talking about getting these wires for Christmas – they are great and make blocking much easier. Wish I knew better finishing techniques – my front pieces never seem to exactly match up and I have to struggle with blocking to make them work correctly! Unfortunately my sweaters always have that home made look.

I’d be better off sticking to socks – which always turn out great!

I got a great scarf book for Christmas ....If only my stash had something suitable – too many sock yarns – but I’ll figure something out I’m sure. There are a lot of great things in here that I can’t wait to start.

I was reading I'm Knitting as fast as I can - she has counted her FO for last year – oh my gosh – 70 something. So I went to my little journal book where I keep track of my knitting and I only came up with 13. How do you do it! There just aren’t enough hours in the day! And I’ve completely put my reading aside – The Book Club girls are getting frustrated with me for sure!

We did all get together this weekend and saw ‘Memoirs of a Geisha” – it was great – what a life and such a lost culture of such beauty. It was such an integral part of Japanese culture.

Hope everyone is having a great week. I did put my resume out there again and have had calls of support….hopefully a new job will be in the not to distant future!

My thoughts go out to The Miners Families...

I want to get the scarf book, too. I've seen so many great things out of it being posted. And I can't imagine posting about how many things I knit last year -- seems like so few compared to Susan! But reading blogs and posting my own seems to keep me moving to do more.
