Ohhh...I didn't know you used the sewing maching to do that!  I knew you used scissors.  Yeah, maybe I'll attempt those sometimie in the next couple of years.  I've got to make a sweater that's wearable first.   Undecided  That's a goal for me. 

If you can get your hands on a serger... oh, it makes steeking so much less painful.

My resolutions are mostly blog related or assisted - 1)take more detailed notes on what happens when I knit so that I post about more than just finished objects, and 2) make a list of my stash and keep track of how it's being used up as the year progresses. In yesteryear, I would have just done all this stuff in a journal, but now I can do it on the internet to share with everyone else!

I have tons of resolutions:

Entrelac (Lady Eleanor and/or Danicka)
Lace (for hats!)
Fair Isle
A sweater for my son and myself
To use up all my stash before buying anything new (not counting the Cascade 220 I'm buying today!)

My main resolution is to blog more. I haven't written an entry in months! I would like to do an update at least once a week, more if possible. I want to have detailed notes as well as pictures, including in-progress pictures, so I can look back on previous entries and have all the right info.

I also would like to constantly have a sock on the needles. I've become addicted to making socks and buying sock yarn, and I always need a small project to bring with me on the bus.

And I need to find a baby. I have knit a few baby hats, simply because I love them, and I have no baby to give them to! And they're made of wool, so I don't think hospitals or charities would be too keen on taking them. I would do them in acrylic, so I could donate, but I have yet to find an acrylic that compares to Lorna's Laces sock yarn, which is what I have been using. I guess I could keep them for when I have a baby, but that seems so far away right now.

On a similar note, I would like to knit chemo caps and maybe baby caps for the local charities this year. I love knitting hats but look silly in them, so why not knit them for someone who needs one?

I've tried entrelac once and failed but I'm going to try again,
If you haven't already got that entrelac down I think the garterlac dishcolth is an excellent way to learn. In the first paragraph there is a link to PDF of the instruction and to a "photo tut" for where to pick up stitches. I found it very easy to follow and I copied the instructions and photos into a word doc so I could put the pics with their part in the pattern.

I have tried again and it's starting to make more sense but it doesn't look all that great.  Thanks for the link I'm going to try the dishcloths.  I think that having the pictures and a clearer explanation than what I have will help me.
