At the beginning of the new year, I made a goal to knit (at least) one item each month for myself. For my January project, I chose the Off Piste hat, since most of the knitting I did for the month was finishing a couple Christmas gifts. Oh, and after I finished up the gift knitting I just got the sudden urge to make a few cowls for myself.
The sudden urge, or need, to make these came to me after several days of taking Jackson for walks in cold, windy weather where I about got my cheeks frozen off. They make a pretty cute accessory, can now serve me well for all practical reasons of staying warm, and they used up some leftover yarn in my stash. =)
And now my Off Piste hat is close to being finished…
I really did want to have it done by the end of January, as I still have to hurry and decide on my February project and get that started. There are so many things I want to make, it’s kind of hard to decide which to do next! I might pop back in here over the weekend and show you the few I have in mind, and you can take a vote to help me decide. =)
