I made my list of things to remember to do or think about this semester and tacked it up on the fridge, and then I snapped a picture of the snow falling outside.

My knitterly goals for 2010? Not goals so much as ideas and possibilities: handspun socks, something cabled, spinning for a sweater, a nice balance of knitting that calms me and knitting that challenges me. I also plan to keep working on my spinning — which will allow me to keep something handspun on the needles all (or most of) the time.

And with that, how about some knitting and spinning progress to kick off the new year?

This stuff is awesome. 155 yards of about 3.5 oz of Crown Mountain Farms superwash merino in Albatross, destined to be mittens for my brother.

You know, because I’m keeping these:

Boh is so ready for 2010. (Or dinner.) Happy New Year!

  1. Either that or he is trying to shame you about keeping the mittens…. pushy doggie! I LOVE the yarn you have spun for the new ones, though, so I wouldn’t worry about it!!
    What is your language requirement? A French requirement is the reason that I don’t have a PhD in Art History!! :-)

    Off to my dinner- corned beef and cabbage, bless the Scots-Irish soul!

  2. Happy new year! I love the idea of having ideas and possibilities rather than specific goals. Those mittens look great – I’d totally be keeping them too and I reckon the Crown Mountain Farms yarn is a pretty generous substitute for your bro – your spinning is so impressive, I’m in awe!

  3. Happy New Year! New year, new semester–isn’t there just something about that beginning, all new and shiny with possibility? Best wishes in meeting your goals.

  4. Happy New Year! Loving the handspun for the mittens–you’ve got a
    lucky bro! Good list too–I’m thankful you’re dedicated to spinning, I so enjoy reading about your ventures!

  5. Just so you know, I’ll be teaching “German for Reading” this coming semester … would a correspondence course count? I love how that fiber spun up! Those mittens will be wonderful — and I doubt he’ll miss the pair he never knew he had. (Boh wouldn’t tell, would he?)

  6. Happy New Year!! It looks like 2010 is off to a good start for you with that lovely handspun and “confiscated” mittens!
