A New Year - Let's Roll!

Welcome, 2012! This year promises to be a year of calmness and productivity, and I'm looking forward to it.

So far this year, the work has begun to get the CGK books ready for the tax man. Membership renewals for the new year are nearly ready to send out. There's going to be a membership increase this year, so we want to give members as much opportunity as possible to beat the increase.

I'd hoped to get to a website update this weekend, but it won't happen today. I've had two inquiries about Level 2 this week, and that's going to be job-one tomorrow, and the next couple weekends.

My knitting mo-jo took a bit of a hike toward the end of last year. After gardening season, I worked on a series of face cloths for the Spring, 2012 issue of A Needle Pulling Thread - here's a sneak peek:

The set is a trio of a round, square, and triangular cloth. This sample was made with cotton DK weight yarn.

Five or six face cloths later, I moved on to hats. Since mid-December I've made six hats, and I think I'm about done with that, too.

Next on the needles is a top-down sweater to replace one I LOVE from a Paton's leaflet. This time, I'm making it in Briggs & Little Regal. The yoke is only about 1/2 done.

May the New Year bring you the best life has to offer!
