out with the old, in with the new

my final FO of 2008, finished on 31st Jan Dec, a shawl for my mum who has been in hospital for a bit and looked like she could do with something to keep her shoulders warm while sitting up in bed.

pattern: La La’s Simple Shawl by Laura Linneman (free ravelry download)
yarn: James C. Brett Marble Chunky in 07 Autumn
needles: 6 mm

…. and the first project I cast on in 2009, salto socks for the Violet Green group’s knit-a-long.

This was the progress I made on the first day. Then I realised I’d mis-read the pattern and had to frog most of it out. I am nearly back to this point now …

is it next year yet?

Am looking forward to tomorrow so that I can cast on for the VGAlong – the Fans of Violet Green Ravelry group‘s first knit along, any VG yarn and/or VG pattern.  I’m going to do Salto socks in soft green Socrates from the stash.  I have everything ready and am itching to start.
