2015: Year of the sock

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 12, 2015, 11:34 AM

Welp, this is me jumping into the deep end again. And I am so excited about it. I taught myself how to knit, purl, M1L and M1R, and K2T (I think that’s the abbreviation for knit 2 together to decrease), and now I think I’m ready for socks (the whole reason I’m learning to knit now). I've received some Knit Picks Stroll Tonal as practice yarn and I cast on last night. two at a time, toe up on circular needles. According to the women on my group this is the ONLY way to do it. and I've seen their results so I trust them.

This is going to be… interesting. If you want to follow along and have a Ravelry account, my username there is the same as here.

Other things I've been up to:
- My Pony got published here: snkhan.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.p…. IF you are interested in publishing models for the sake of having done so rather than for financial gain, and joining a fun project, keep your eyes on that forum for next year (it opens around October).
- Now I've started on a sheep for this year. or maybe a ram.
- Has anyone ever worked with a blintzed pig base. Folded one up last night and it doesn't' seem very practical, but interesting. 
- Started watching Mudoch Mysteries. It's like CSI meets Sherlock Holmes in Toronto. So addictive and fun!
- Roasted a duck. I've been craving roast duck for about a month now, and I finally got to it. It's got a honey/molassas/chile glaze and is some of the most tender and delicious meat I've ever shredded. On the menu this week: Duck wraps with chickpea ragout on Chinese lettuce. Mmmmm. I'll be roasting more ducks this year.
