YOP #48

Well it is almost to the end of my year....and I'll soon be taking stock of what I've my Friday post showed, I've finished up a few things....

I also started one of the patterns I bought during the indie sale...I am in love with the Snowy Woods Cowl...and I needed to start it! I am using Nerd Girl Random Fandom This Shark, hence my project name Shark in the Woods..  It's got a bit of a sparkle to it....the pattern calls for Aran and it's DK, so I'm hoping it'll turn out should as I am such a loose knitter....
I'm thinking of starting another pair of socks, my Hey Have I Ever Steered You Wrong?, because Bernard and Christmas....I bought the kit, but I've only ever done one pair of toe-up socks....but hey, if I can do cables on the cowl, I can master toe-up!

I also need to add an edge to the yellow pompom fits, but is slightly big, so I'm going to add a crocheted edging to it....

I went to NYC on Friday and did a mini yarn crawl...two stores in Brooklyn and two stores in Manhatten..I'll be doing a post on them soon....lots of goodies....including a new Zauberball that needs to be cast on NOW!  while on the bus to NYC, I did work on   'Tis the Season, but ended up frogging a good bit of it for a missed end stitch..bah-humbug!  But I do want to finish that up too...

I have been sick again for about a week or so...since about last Saturday....I think it is finally leaving, but this Saturday I spent the day not doing much...watching an America's Next Top Model marathon and taping a Vikings marathon and taking I'll tape and watch The Walking Dead marathon starting at 2....I'll probably work on some things today too....

Lovely yarn for your cowl. It's been cold here, so I was just thinking about casting on a quick bulky knit cowl.

Hot fluids, lots of rest, maybe a bit of Rum and feel better! Gavin's on week two of his cold and he's been just miserable!
