Happy New Year!

On the first of every year it has become tradition for me to host a Crafternoon brunch at my house.  Some of my nearest and dearest crafty friends brave the cold weather and come over toting project bags and a potluck contribution.  We eat, we drink tea, we craft, we laugh and we start the year off by doing many of the things we want to nurture throughout the coming year.  I love this tradition.

This year Missy and I used the occasion to cast on for a sweater knitalong we are doing together.  We toasted the occasion by clinking needles and swatches together and then casting on for Strokkur.  I haven't done much in the way of stranded colorwork so I am looking forward to increasing my knitting skills.  We are both using a shockingly blaze orange accent color in the sweater yolk so it will be exciting to see how these turn out!

Thanks for taking this picture, Jessica!

Good riddance, 2013!  Welcome, 2014!


  1. Welcome 2014! I had a great time as always. I am always impressed by the talent at the table and the creative dishes that people share. Your photos are all so beautiful. May I digitally slurp the first one for my ravelry project for those socks?

    1. Ha! Slurp away! I have always thought that term to be amusing.

  2. I'm sorry I missed this. Also, I can't wait to see the sweater progress! Great choice.
