Now that I've turned the heel on my second Tart Lime sock, I know there's just a few days more to finish it. Which means I can start thinking about my next project just in time for the New Year ... a good time to think about my knitting resolutions for the coming year. My first resolution? To choose projects to knit the yarn I already have.
With that in mind, I've cast on a Heartland Lace shawl. Many years ago I bought some dk weight cotton/nylon blend yarn because I loved the colours. And ever since I've been at a loss as to what to knit from it; that is, until a fellow Raveler messaged me to ask if I could spare some so that she could finish her shawl. Absolutely. And after looking at her project pages, a lace shawl seemed an ideal use for this yarn. Last summer I knit a swallowtail shawl - one of the most interesting and challenging knits I'd ever attempted. Another challenge seems like a good way to start a new year!
