Also modeled by Jessie cat.
Perhaps a bit less enthusiastically!

This is some great yarn from Mountain Colors called Teton, a bulky weight merino. Tim has a hat, I have the bandana scarf. Jessie cat is warm..

Honey Cowl and Jessie Cat

I made this cowl (free pattern from MadTosh) over Christmas using some fun sock yarn (no idea what). The cowl is great--a great weight, fun colors, looks good with lots of stuff.

Yes, this from the woman who hates cowls.

One point five

I've finished one and a half repeats of my Romeo, and the first pinky color is almost all used up. I'm in a good fair isle rhythm and probably only have to tink one out of every five rows because I don't pay attention. This will definitely be my Super Bowl knitting project!

Christmas socks

I have been very in to red, green and gold yarns this year--I think it is because we had a very colorful fall and loved seeing all the colors out the window. This yarn is (I believe) an old 'rare gems' from Socks that Rock.

Love struck by Romeo

This is a Kieran Foley pattern that uses small skeins of yarn dyed in a sequence by ColorShift yarn at etsy. Probably the most demanding and intricate thing I've done but so far, so good. This photo is one complete repeat.

I'm going for that 'short but frequent' blogging thing, can you tell?

I'm working on this little sweater, created by two very talented ladies at Tin Can Knits.

I'm using Berroco Comfort, which I bought for a different project but, well, there you go.

I am not a fan of lace, and if you look closely you can see a gazillion errors, but all in all this is just fine. I tinked certain sections four or five times. So be it.

Secret Christmas Knitting

These socks were happily opened by Tim on Christmas morning. If you look closely (and ignore the cat), you'll note that there are little Pilot dogs running around the legs and feet.

I'm posting more projects on Rav and being less busy here, so if you're want to see more of what I'm up to it is kiminoregon at Ravelry.

Happy New Year!
