I have only just turned the third page on this new 365-book and this book has to be read as it unfolds, one cannot go and take apeek at the last page to see how the book ends. And the whole of last year and all the decades before were only a prologue for this book. Then maybe not, maybe this is just another chapter in the book "Lene's life and knitting". Let's hope this is not just another printing, let's hope it is at least a revised edition.
The rusty sock is still at the same stage it was the last time I looked at it: one quarter of the second sock done. I am not sure but maybe it is the gauge issue. I so love small gauge. But then I have some skeins of heavier yarn in my stash and I really need to work through them at some point. There is plenty of inspiration for heavy yarn lace and maybe that would be the way to go with that stash. I think I will try to make a swatch today. Also i know for sure that I would need to shop a bit for dk and worsted weight yarns too to really see what is out there today and how they feel. I should shop some new yarn ---- how wonderful that sounds? With new yarn would comd new inspiration and new possibilities.
When decorating the house for Christmas I came upon the bear that I made quite long ago. I have been turning it over and over and looking at it from all possible angles and wondering if i should plan to knit "somebody" instead of something. A short visit to a fairly tale could be a nice change. This thought is taking up a lot of space in my mind, I just don't know whether the idea is finished or if I should let it simmer a bit.
And I have been drawing little bunnies and transferring them onto charted paper to see if that would be a way to go. Lots of unfinished ideas floating around, none of them really sparking off into serious flames of knitting. Not yet, anyway.
But there is another new year to see if any of them work out. And as I said, this book doesn't allow peeking.
Okay, time to go, get some wood and build a real fire.
