January here & gone...

I can't believe that January is almost over, and the holidays are well behind us.  I have been busy this month with many projects, including one of my resolutions, organizing my stash.  Now that was a mess, but most of it is photographed and posted on my Ravelry page.www.ravelry.com/angelasmith

In January, I have finished both versions of Ysolda Teague's "Ripley" and her "Ishbel" shawl.  By the end of the month I will also finish Wooly Wormhead's "Castiel", three "Calorimetry", and Stitch and Bitch's "Newsboy Cap."

What's Next:
I will be working on a shrug for my 7 month old, figuring out my first design project, and start the Wispy cardigan from Hannah Fetig.  So much yarn and not enough time!

Favorite Things:
I love the knitting bags from Go Monkey www.gomonkeydesign.etsy.com
They are roomier than most available online, and they are so stylish.

Tips & Tricks:
Pack highlighters and sticky notes in your knitting bag.  They help keep your place with charts, and keep on track when your pattern offers different size options to one pattern.
