Episode 14

Thanks to Littledragon on Ravelry for the suggestion to check for the errata of a pattern!

Thanks to Iggystar71 and mmmmeg for the iTunes reviews!

Mom's Christmas presents: The Shapely Cowl by Amy Swenson and the Prairie Rose Lace Shawl. I used the Schulana Cashmere Fino for the cowl and the Sweet Georgia Superwash Sock in Savory.

Still working on the Lightweight Pullover.

Started a stockinette sock in Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock in Lightweight in Jabberwocky, and still am working on the Alina socks in the same yarn as the Jabberwocky.

Finished the socks for my husband using the Hello Yarn sock in the Triple Chocolate colorway.

Spinning using the Sweet Georgia Fiber Club fiber and the Hello Yarn Fiber Club fiber.

Sheri at Morro Fleece Works sent me back a few fleeces and did a great job again!

My poor Woolee winder broke!

New Podcast: Sassypantsknitter by SillyFru on Ravelry. I absolutely love this podcast!

Goals for 2010:

Knit one pair of gloves and one pair of mittens (preferably colorwork mittens)
Enter yarn and knitting into the fiber competitions for Black Sheep Gathering, the Puyallup Fair and Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival
Spin the yarn for and knit a sweater out of that handspun
Spin for 20 minutes at least every other day
Catch up on spinning for fiber clubs, and no longer have fiber clubs that are more than 3 months old.
Knit more sweaters than I did in 2009
