It’s the last day of the year, but never fear! I will not be doing a retrospective of 2012 knitting**, etc.
In fact, my primary reason for posting today is simply to wish you all the very best in 2013.
Have a safe New Year’s Eve, whether you’re celebrating or hunkering down. As for me, I shall be at work, sending help to those who need it and thanking goodness I have the skills and will to help them in large ways and small.
** A final knitting update: The pink ruffled-edge baby cardigan is all done, except for buttons. And as I am bedward bound in a few minutes, with no suitable buttons in the house and no time for a trip to buy them, the sweater will not be my final FO for 2012. Perhaps it will be the first of 2013?
Then again, perhaps not.
In fact, last night I started the aqua Knotty But Nice hat for the BC16’s female friend. I completed the bottom band and 16 of the 29 rows of the cabled section. Once I finish that part, only 15 rounds (decreasing to the crown) will remain. There is a good chance I’ll finish that before the aforementioned baby cardi, simply because I can knit it without any further accessories. If that proves true, then this hat could be FO #1 for 2013.
Care to place bets? Things to keep in mind: I will be at work tonight and Tuesday night, for 12 hours a night, and the supervisor and/or workload may not allow for much knitting.
Chat at you next year, kittens. (Corny, but true!)
