Imagine When I Found My Mojo

My missing mojo has been found! It was hiding in a knitting group and a wool festival.

After joining the knitting group a couple of weeks ago, I picked the shawl I started in April back up. Getting back to the needles felt good. It didn’t hurt that the yarn was something as beautiful to work with as Anzula Cloud. The pattern is Imagine When by Joji Locatelli. I absolutely love the play between the simplicity of the garter stitch and the skewed sections created by short rows. And the color  - petunia, a shocking pink. And the squish factor – what’s not to love about merino and cashmere?! This is going to be a favorite.

Looking Back at 2013

I made one New Years resolution in 2012, and that was to make 2013 the year of (mostly) selfish knitting. For the first time ever I (mostly) succeeded in keeping my resolution.

In 2013, I knitted 8.10 MILES of yarn. That’s 14, 256 yards. 42,768 feet. 513,216 inches. 13,035.7 meters if you prefer metric. That’s a lot of yarn.  What does that make??

  • 1 shrug
  • 7 pairs of mittens and fingerless gloves
  • 11 hats
  • 1 bag
  • 7 sweaters
  • 8 stuffed animals
  • 1 pair of baby leg warmers
  • 3 cowls/scarves
  • 1 pair of slippers
  • 6 shawls 
  • and 2 dishcloths
 I’m going to have to knit faster in 2014 if I want to put a REAL dent in this stash…
