The first FO of the New Year is here! It is Nimbus a free pattern from Berroco.com. I love the free sweaters they do and of course they have one of my favorite designers on staff, Norah Gaughn. This pattern was so fast to knit. I actually started it on the first day of my Christmas vacation and finished it on New Years Eve. It languished until Sunday when I finally went out and bought a button for it. I made it from Bernat Soft Boucle in the gray color way I used two and half skeins of the yarn so I have a skein and half left over for something else. This yarn seems to grow in the skein; according to the yardage on the pattern I should have needed four skeins but whatever. I still love it the fuzziness does obscure the stitch definition some but it is a great swingy warm sweater. I wore it to work today and am very happy with it. My New Years Resolution for knitting was to wear what I make in public, I am working on it.
My knitting resolutions:Wear what I make or find homes for them
Use up projects worth of yarn I have in the stash
Make my Fair Isle sweater
My crochet resolution:
Make a crochet quilt
Other knitting news include a pair of fingerless mitts, a new deluxe scarf and some flip top mittens for Jazzy all coming soon.
