Socks and fishies

Well, here we are, 3 days into the new year. How are those resolutions holding up?

This week was pretty quiet around here with the holiday and all, so there was quite a bit of knitting.
Finished up the last of the christmas knitting. I know, it was late.
These are the stranded socks. I think they turned out pretty well. The pattern looks like fish scales. The yarn is STR lightweight, strange brew, and there's plenty left for a little something for me. I also knit a few fish. I'll be working on these fish for pretty much the whole year, using up my little bits of sock yarn. Maybe in about 10 years, they'll make a blanket or something. I think they're kind of cute.

This is a cool scarf/cowl/? called Taliesin. I'm test knitting it (that makes me feel important, by the way) I'm loving the colors and the texture. It's a really simple knit, easy to memorize pattern. I'm about 3/4 done and I bought some buttons yesterday that I think are going to work well. It kind of reminds me of easter eggs. I'm thinking spring already.

Next up, some double knitting, From My Heart (rav link), with yarn from the stash and hopefully finished before valentine's day.

Taliesin is lovely! I'll be watching for those fish to appear, every so often here.
It's day 5, and plans are still in full-force in my world...tho I did slip just a touch, and bought a shelf unit I needed for the office. Money well spent, I think...but it WAS spent!
