I love a fresh start and a change in pace. The New Year is the perfect time to start new projects, and there are a few that I am participating in.
1. First is a sock knit-along. I am knitting with Amanda, Kayanna, Amy, and Amanda! They are all knitting pros, I'm definitely the beginner in the bunch. I am using Madeline Tosh sock yarn in oxblood. It is the richest color, and I love using it so far. This is my first time using DPN's (double pointed needles), and they are a little scary. But so far so good!
2. I am doing two photo projects: January Photo a Day and the 365 Project. The January Photo a day is a list of specific pictures that you take every day during this month. This the list, it comes from this blog, and you can read more info there. I am posting my pictures on Instagram (@fussycut) and Flickr.
3. I am hoping to join the rose star block party. I really enjoy paper piecing, and I am hoping to make this for my table or wall. The block party is being hosted by Clare, isn't her quilt gorgeous?
4. We wll be starting the Farmer's Wife quilt-along back up in February, and I am looking forward to getting back to these little blocks. For now, my pretty stack of FW fabrics will be waiting for me in my sewing cabinet. If you are thinking about making the FW sampler quilt, this would be a great time to start! Lots of people are starting now that that it is a new year.
