2010 Wrap-Up

Happy New Year, everyone. It looks like the new year here will be even busier than the old one. I’m feeling a mite discombobulated, so I’m not even going to attempt to string this last set of projects into any sort of meaningful theme. Let’s just call it a brain-purge of all the 2010 projects I never got around to showing you.

blue-lizardAnother lizard shirt, this one in blue. This one is made the same way as the first one was.
rice-packetsRice packets! I put these in my sugar jars and laundry detergent to keep them from getting hard if a little moisture makes it into the jar. They make a huge difference, especially in my sugar jars. Without these little guys, we have to chip the sugar out!
2x2-meA set of 2×2 rib socks for me.

Yarn: Zen String Loopy Legends in Laurie’s Carolina Morning (100% merino wool – 3-ply light fingering weight.
Needles: US 1.5 (2.5 mm) dpns

There’s another bat just like Glidey around here somewhere, but he was lost almost as soon as he was completed. Someday he’ll turn up and I’ll get a picture.

Also, imagine a pile of this yarn. I finished up the fiber, but have no photos yet.

May your new year be happy and bright!
