My various Santas were very generous in their gifting this year. It's almost as though my entire family got together and thought, "Knitting supplies for Natasha!" I couldn't be happier :-) I've been a very frustrated knitter lately and have frogged nearly everything I've tried to make due to yarn frustration, pattern frustration or simply that I just don't know what to make. I am so excited to improve my knitting skills this year and get started on some new projects!
A set of knitting needles.
My mom made me this super cool needles storage/carrying case! I might modify it slightly so I can put some circular needles or dpn's in the smaller pockets. I'm a huge stripe fan, so I love the fabric!
My brother gave me some yarn.
Hand-painted silk - gorgeous, right? I am dieing to learn how to knit lace this year and this is going to make one beautiful shawl!
A hilarious (and practical) book! I love cats but I'm very allergic so a knit cat is perfect. Besides, what knitter doesn't want to knit an entire fleet of cats!?
I love this little guy - so cute!!!! The patterns seem relatively straight-forward so I suspect I'm going to have a bunch of new "pets" by the end of the year :-)
I am so grateful to my family's generosity and I can't wait to start some projects!
