Two finished objects, on the third of the year
The Ten-Stitch Twist blanket has been completed, tested, and has been found satisfactory.
I like it much better than the sweater the yarn was in its former life.
The Noro Kureyon makes a pleasant light weight afghan. Finished size is 42 inches across, just right lap size.
This pattern doesn't require a great deal of attention when knitting. This made it a great knit for movie watching, or visiting with company.
Hippocampus mittens knitted with leftovers from my Kauni cardigan. They have gone to live with Bekky.
They were so much fun to knit that there is another pair on the needles for Girl of the House.
Have you discovered Settlers of Catan?
Girl of the House received the game for Christmas, and we've been playing quite a bit while we're huddled around the fireplace for warmth. (Once again, it's severely subzero in Minnesota.)
It's good for three or four people, and there's an expansion set to make it fun for more people.
