New Year = more knitting

Ok so now that I've taken a good year break on blogging I think it's high time I start up again. I've always wanted to maintain a knitting blog, I just never realized that it would be this impossible. So for this years new year resolutions, maintaining my blog will be #1.

My other resolutions are too:
- finish all of my UFO's, and there is a lot of them
- try knitting at least one pair of socks, one piece of lace, and one cardigan
- try spinning some yarn
- got to hot yoga at least twice a week
- get my drivers license.
Lately I've been knitting Lady Eleanor for my mother. I started it half way through December and I finished the knitting last weekend. I'm going to finish with the fringe tonight and then block it. These pictures are from a few weeks ago and they don't exactly show the colours properly.

I've also just started on Heroine a felted jacket. It's my first felting project and I'm a little worried about how it's going to turn out. It's currently hibernating until I finish Lady Eleanor, but hopefully I'll have pictures up in a few weeks.

Lastly, I've signed up for a Vampire knitting swap on Ravelry and I'm excited to see what I'll be getting. I've been doing some research on my swappee and I think I'll be knitting a pair of fingerless mitts for them, sending off some luxury yarn, and possibly sending them the first book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, which in now on HBO as True Blood.
