Where Did January Go?
Plus look at my evil kitten who is not helping me get any work done. This was me trying to make a shirt for my niece's birthday gift! I have 4 of 7 parts done! I'm hoping she's all tuckered out from harassing me this afternoon, so I can get work done this evening!
I visited my neighbor last night and I learned so much I just have to share! She bought this awesome book called The Knitter's Book of Yarn. Which tells you everything you could ever want to know about yarn, there weights, how warm they are, etc... I learned that wool is not the friend I thought it was. It will not keep me as warm as angora from a rabbit. Which is 8 times warmer than wool! Seriously that's a lot when it's in the negative numbers! Or alpaca which I think is eight times warmer than wool but is much denser so an alpaca sweater will weigh a ton compared to a wool sweater! The info can go on and on. So I need this book but it has to wait until I have the time to sit and read! I can tell there will be some serious knitting changes around here in the up coming year!
So good bye January, Helloooooo February!
