New Year’s good intentions

My good intentions for 2013 are largely knitting related:

1. Learn more knitting techniques. Knitters like Helen Griffin have made me realise that there’s more than one way to cast-on (to say the least).

2. Learn more about knitting history and traditions. Visiting museums and galleries like the V&A, I want to make a conscious effort to learn about and draw inspiration from knitting foremothers (and fathers), such as the sock knitters of Sanquhar.

3. Make some patterns. Who knows? I might even be able to sell some.

Pangolin Christmas cards – finishing touches

Happy New Year!

But before I start on 2013 projects, here are the finishing touches from an old one.

Yes, yes, I know it’s bad luck to keep the Xmas decs up, but here are some pictures of the finished pangolin Christmas cards before I sent them off to friends and family. I was really pleased with the results and couldn’t resist making a print to keep for myself. Maybe next Christmas I’ll try to make a few extra to sell.
