Just keep knitting

Nothing like a State of Emergency to really put a wrench in those holiday travel plans. I, like many other travelers, had my flight canceled early last week due to the massive amount of snow that blanketed the NY metro area.   

While I was super bummed about not being able to go away, I was in NO condition to complain. Our airline even refunded us the ticket! (bravo Continental!) The only thing that became ridiculous was the condition of our roads in our town.  Hoboken even got blasted by the head coach of the Orlando Magic which was late to their NBA game due to the terrible conditions.

On the bright side, we had the chance to spend extended time with our friends and family. And of course through all things good and bad, I knitted!

Waffle Stitch Hat

Pattern: My own
Yarn: Karabella Aurora 8 (left over from Camilla)
Needles: US 7

I truly love the spring in the Aurora 8. It's elasticity makes it a perfect yarn for hats.  The stitch pattern is the same as the fingerless gloves I made back in October. Both patterns I hope to write up soon!  (new years resolution #1 – write more patterns!)

It's blowing my mind how quickly 2010 went and how much faster I worry 2011 will go.  Highs thankfully outweighed the lows.  Ups overcame the downs and holy crap did I knit every chance I got.

My Knits of 2010

2010 was all sorts of awesome for me.  My husband and I bought a home, I turned the big 3-oohh, and I sold my very first pattern (yea Orla!).  I am so very excited at where my knitting will take me in the year ahead and I hope you all will stick around to see what happens!  

I wish you all fabulous, exciting and adventure filled '11's!  Knit on!

    Congrats on so many beautiful projects in 2010! That’s too bad that your travel plans got concalled, but that’s fantastic that the airline treated you well and you had such a great perspective on it. Love the new hat!
