Knitting Goals

So far my knitting has been pretty basic, nothing that involves putting sleeves in, or turning heels, but I want to change that this year. I have definitely been nervous about knitting cardigans and socks, but I really want to, so I’m going to jump in and just do it. This Christmas, my family got me a set of these needles, and I am loving them. I can’t tell you how nice it is to just be able to change out the cables and have a completely new set of needles tailored to the size that I need. They are light and wonderful to work with, and the points are nice and pointy, no dull needles for me. I just finished up a wrap for myself, hoping to get decent pics this weekend, and now onto a cardi for the babe. I figured I’d break myself in easy with the whole sleeve thing. It’s a bit of a fingers crossed project, this, as I am going to have barely enough yarn and I’m working from a French pattern. More details to follow, providing I don’t make a complete mess of it, that is.
