First, a wonderful group on Ravelry.com, called Knitting and Tea and Cookies, is starting a knit-along in February. We are actually making a hat designed by the group's leader, Mary Keenan. I've already made a couple of her designs and they are great. So, I went out today and purchased yarn to make the hat, a scarf, and convertible mittens. The yarn is Noro Silk and is really beautiful.
The second bit of excitement was waiting on my porch when I returned home. It's a new book by Kathleen Taylor called Fearless Fair Isle Knitting. I am so excited to look through it, but really terrified to make most of the projects!
Isn't it beautiful! I'm off to read and plan.
