Patterns, Calendars, New Projects
Charity had asked how I like the Knitting Pattern a Day Calendar. I would say I have mixed feelings. It's a lot of fun to turn the page each day and see a new knitting pattern. However, on the majority of days, the pattern is not something I'd necessarily make. That being said, I've already made three things from the calendar and have marked several others that I might make. The hat I just made came out really cute. It will go to Afghans for Afghans and hopefully find a good home, warming a child's head!
I don't know that I'll buy the calendar next year. I can refer to this year's patterns (along with the numerous other patterns that cross my path in the magazines I receive and online!). I've heard nice reviews of the 365 Knitting Stitches A Year Perpetual Calendar, so I might consider that, but I don't know that I'm creative enough to design my own garments yet. It might just be nice to look at!
I had a great day at The Knitting Guild Association Market in Philadelphia on Friday. Bought too much, but I was well behaved in that I had a list of things I was looking for to complete some projects, and that's really all I bought. More on that later.
