January Yarn-Along

{Yarning along with Ginny to share my current yarn and book loves}

I so love New Year's and what it does for my knitting.

After all that knitting for Christmas gifts for family through the fall I love to spend the week between Christmas and New Year's casting on for a few selfish projects.

The day after Christmas I started winding skeins and casting on: 

And last but not least, that lovely pale pink Berrocco Vintage featured in the photos above is for a little baby cardigan I sketched up in December. We'll see if anything comes of it or if the yarn goes into another little knit for Miss Ellie. The yarn will be for her, whether it is by my design or someone else's.

I'm also ready to cast on for a few more baby knits as soon as I finish a project or two. I have three little nieces or nephews due in the first 6 months of 2013, plus Ellie's first birthday so I'll need to get moving on those early on. I'm still deciding on the perfect patterns for these gifts, and I'll be sure to share when I do.

In book news, I'm working on the latest Jacqueline Carey novel, Dark Currents. I have a stack of food-related books waiting for me as well. We need a food re-boot for this season.
