happy 2024

Well, hello!
That holiday season pretty much flew by... and so did that year!  And we are already 5 days into 2024!
Since New Years Day, we've taken down Christmas, I started to swim again, I haven't eaten anything processed, I wrote up a pattern for a hot water bottle, spent a lot of time with Libby, started a scarf for Steve and ripped out my Violeta Pullover!  It's been a lovely 5 days!

I also filmed a few things. 
 On instagram, I put together a quick try on session of all the knits I knit in 2023.  Well, most of them anyhow.  I must have made 12 Friend to Friends that didn't go into the pile.  And, a pop-life cardigan for my sister, Lisa.  That video is here.  
I also uploaded a video of some of the places we traveled in 2023.  I left out Seattle, Orcas Island, Bainbridge Island, Rochester, NY,  Lancaster PA and Philadelphia PA.  Going to try a little harder this year on remembering to film the clip wherever we go!  The places you go (and knit) video can be found here.  
And then I filmed a YouTube where I did a quick show and tell of the same 2023 knits.  That video can be found here.  

This is Violeta.  Isn't she a beauty?!  I have loved working on this.  But that sweet piece of fabric is no longer in existence as I ripped it out because of something I forgot to do.  I should have been adding cables in that stockinette section.  That's what happens when you don't read the entire pattern.  (Note to self!)  That's okay.  The pattern has fully clicked in my brain and I know exactly where I am going now.

If you would like the pattern, it is on sale until the end of January.  Half off!  There is also a KAL going on... the only thing you need to do is start a project page on ravelry.  They are giving away great prizes!

Happy New Year Friends!  Here's to you and your crafty endeavors!  I hope your fingers take you to projects and yarns that make you feel incredible in yourself. 

xx, leslie
