And It's A New Year

So. On the knitting front. I frogged Odessa. Again. I want to start some toe-up socks, 3 sweaters, the Odessa (again), a scarf, and... Well, you get the picture. I cast on for the scarf - a simple k2p2 rib for The Boy - but I'm not happy with it, so I think I'll be frogging that as well. I am swatching the elann alpaca and the karabella aurora 8 for two of the sweaters. But a whole lot of nothin' going on. I did manage to snag this at The Knitting Room in Medford:

Isn't this stunning? It's a little more purple in the picture, and more red/burgundy in real life. I'm looking for a flame/candle tip lace pattern. Any suggestions?

    I so need to go shopping with you. You get the best yarn. I like the color of that yarn you "snagged". Is it a lace weight? If you go and look at knit spot( she has several gorgeous shawls, scarves, etc that she designed. Some of them are free and some of them are pay, but I would think that any one of them would be worth whatever the price of admission. Also, if your yarn is heavier than lace weight, I think that some of her shawls are made for heavier weight yarn.

    Happy New Year to you and the Boy.
