If you want to add "Charity Knitting" to your list of knitting resolutions, here is a quick project for you. Baby Hats for this charity are due before the end of February.

I might have to hire some pinch knitters.

Socks: I am trying toe up and am fine until I get to the heel
Cables: I just got cable tools as a free gift when I ordered some needles, I took it as a sign that I needed to learn.
Finish two of the blankets I have in progress and work on booties for a friend's baby due in May.
Softies: try a couple I'm thinking they aren't as hard as they look

If you have them, you might find that dpns work as a better cable needle. I recently started working on cables for the first time, and I found that I really didn't like the cable needle. I find that a dpn a few sizes smaller than my knitting needle works a lot better for me. Either way it goes, good luck!!

1. Use up some stash yarn - its getting a little unmanageable and I want to tackle it before it gets any worse!
2. Finish my long neglected Log Cabin blanket.
3. Knit a sweater number 2 - I did one a couple of years ago, recently found a couple of patterns that I love!
4. Knit some Christmas gifts - didn't have time to do any this year so I thought I'd get an early start!

I find that I like the cable needles that are more like a safety pin- lock into place and there's NO way it'll come out. However, I take knitting everywhere and all, so there's always a chance during travel that the stuff will work its way out. As for doing a cable pattern- bite the bullet because you know you'll love it! It's not that hard to do... the worst stuff is when you get a complicated pattern. Those look nice but aren't the best first project. Just a simple six stitch cable or something would suffice, really, to get going...

I want to get my mojo back! I NEED to get my mojo back!

I've found a knitting group and I believe next week is the first meeting of the year. Perhaps this will help me get my mojo back!

Yeah, that probably would be best for a traveling knitter. I mainly just stay at home with my knitting, and sometimes go to my gf's mom's house, but I just sit on the couch and knit lol.

2011 New Year knitting Resolution
I am making dishclothes for EVERYONE in my family! I want to be able to give back to all of the family members that have bought me things and givin me things for the last... 15 years of my life!
I am also going to try to learn how to do this pattern in the book "toys to crochet". It is a cow, and a horse. What I'm trying to figure out is how to "chain 5sc into 2nd chain from hook" Any help?

That's crochet. You'll need a crochet hook and some yarn. You're going to make 5 chains(ch), and make a single crochet(sc) in the the second chain from your hook. Hope that helped some.
