    Surprise Party Shawl by Helen Stewart
    Hey guys, 
    Welcome back! Ash and I had an awesome weekend last weekend! I decided that it was unfair that I didn't get March break anymore and decided to take an extended weekend to Ottawa to visit the fam! I even made it down early enough to have an impromptu knit night with a couple of friends that I don't get to see nearly often enough. We had a blast! We ate some amazing food and I learned the hard way that gin and tonic should never be mixed with knitting. I cast on the second mitten of my Log Cabin Mitts and realised too late that the spiral of the logs flips directions after the centre and had to purl the next couple logs to prevent a weird gap. I'm definitely going to have to try this pattern again (sans gin) to find out exactly where I went awry. In any case, both mitts are done and blocked and the ends are in the process of being woven in. (To be honest, that was supposed to be yesterday's project but the train rides in and out of Toronto were so comfy, I managed to get two solid naps in.)
    All of this gets away from the real point of today's blog, which is THIS BEAUTY:

    New Year, New Plans, New Cast Ons

    So this list of nine new projects took me a lot longer to put together than I thought it would. It is more of a dream list because lets face it, there is very little knitting time in my life at the moment and I am not too sure if that will change. There is also a huge pile of wips that have to be finished up but more on that in another post.

    Stop by the blog and see what I have been dreaming about
