Woo Hoo!
Great to see all the excitement for our 2012 New Year Party.


We will have a wonderful time, staying in out of the cold, and bringing in the New Year together.

Last night, I finished knitting the model for our KAL project. I hope you all like it. I think it's pretty awesome, if I do say so myself.

Finished - Ready to Use by Shandeh, on Flickr

It's a little folding pocket, just big enough to hold a few knitting tools. It is about the size of a deck of cards when it's folded, so it should be easy to grab and throw into your knitting bag or purse, as you go out and about.

I think this might be my favorite design, out of all the New Year KAL projects we have made so far. It's simple and fun, as usual.

I am finishing up the pattern now, so I can post it here for you. Stay tuned!

Thank you for the lovely invitation. Here's my RSVP: I'll be here with PJs on! I look forward to the party, I'll wear my favorite PJs and have my needles and yarn at the ready. Please add my name to the hat. Winning a book would be great but the pleasure of spending an evening with others who are also knitting will be the best.





That project looks fun and useful. Thank you for putting in the time and effort to make it available.

Thank you all for being ready for our party!

I just got an email from a member, asking if they could still participate in the party, if they don't knit the project.

The answer is: EVERYONE is welcome!
You are NOT required to knit the project.
I just always create a new KH project every year, just for the fun of it.

I can't wait until Saturday night!

Just think....in TWO DAYS, we will have our online New Year's Eve Party!

One thing is for sure, I will be HAPPY to say goodbye to 2011. This has been a wicked year for me. Wicked as in BAD, not in good. But, I'm stoked for 2012. It's bound to be an improvement.

Last night, I bought a few treats at the grocery store, and I still need to buy a bottle of bubbly for my virtual toast with all of you to bring in the new year. I will have to stick with sparkling grape juice, because I have to play organ and piano at church the very next morning. Ha! Need to keep my wits about me....

Right now, I am trying to write up the pattern for our cute little knitting tools pocket. I had it all written up on my Samsung Galaxy Tab, but the file is too sophisticated for my old PC to understand. So, I'm typing it all over again, while occasionally touching the screen on my Tab to keep it awake.

Wish me luck!

Cool! Welcome to a new experience.

Wonderful! I'm sure I'll be in PJs too, and I'll be wearing my new handknit slippers as well!

Footississimo Posed by Shandeh, on Flickr

I made them with some INCREDIBLY THICK YARN called Red Heart Boutique Doodle. I had to use size 35 knitting needles, and a size S crochet hook, because the yarn was too thick for anything else. Here's the free pattern: Footississimo Slippers

Gosh, I know how you feel! I remember when I first joined this forum, several years ago. I felt like I had finally found a group of people that understood me....and they were so fun! I look back on those days, and can't believe that now I am a moderator for that same place. I feel honored to be here, and hope I can make you all feel welcome and loved.

Chat is gone anyway.
