New Years Resolution?…..ummm

I don’t do new years resolutions because I don’t want to be disappointed in myself or possibly disappoint others.  But setting goals is a different thing (to me anyways). But really …..making plans is more my speed.  Sure I could make plans to lose weight or exercise more and maybe I will, but in 2013 I plan to definitely knit and embroider more and make them available for sale on  I will blog the same amount or quite possibly more (Even better).

2012-12-31 12.53.39Still working on the afghan for a family member.  This is panel three, panel four will make it complete : )  My hands have been very sore these last few days and so this yarn and cable pattern will only allow me knit a few rows at a time before the hands say no more please!!

2012-12-31 12.52.21For some reason this yarn and pattern ( second knit photo) are much easier on my hands so I have been working on this one for the last couple of days.  Of course it really helps that the yarn is baby alpaca! The pattern is called Baby Alpaca Grande Shrug/Vest.  The yarn and pattern are from Plymouth yarn Co. the colorway is denim.  Very easy to follow and knit! I will show the finished vest when done knitting it, but need to continue with the afghan as well so it might be a while.

I tried the vest on at a yarn store 2 years ago and fell in love with it.  Love the yarn, love the pattern, loved the fit. Here’s a link on Ravelry

John and I went to Pannikin in La Jolla for breakfast this morning.  It’s our favorite coffee and scone place, if your in the area you might want to check them out.  Pannikin Link

happy new year and happy knitting and crochet 🙂




  1. Happy New Year! I’m coming around to the same idea, not to set huge knitting goals or otherwise. Your vest looks great!

    • The link in the post is not mine but thank you! I will have photos when done : )
