Last, but not least are my Camelot socks that I finished yesterday.

Aren't they cool?

They are very warm and comfy and I'm surprised at how quickly they knit up. I'm not one for colourwork, but I've done enough of it to be adept at it.

Just as I was ready to start grafting the toe on my Camelot socks, my doorbell rang. It was my trusty postie delivering yet another order from It was the Peruvian Highland wool I ordered for my Chicknits Ribby Cardi. I don't think I ever did the kitchener stitch as quickly as I did yesterday so I could cast-on for my cardi. I love the eggplant/wisteria colours I decided on with everyone's help that voted.

I wonder if I'll be adding this to my 2004 list?

Happy Knitting!

I like your colours better than I like mine! I got the wisteria with the Dusky Purple, and I don't think they contrast enough :(

Well, you have made some beautiful things this year. What an impressive list. I have had the Wallaby pattern for about 13 years and never made it. Not sure why...but after seeing yours I would like to make one.

What an incredible list! Beautiful knitting too. I love my Rogue cardigan and give you full credit for the inspiration. And I still have that sampler vest on my list of things to do.

Great list! You've really done some beautiful knitting this year. I esp. love the camelot socks. I gave in and ordered yarn for the ribby cardi also...just came a few minutes ago from elann! Now I just need to get the christmas gifts done.
