Yes, chicken nuggets are made out of Satan

Hey guys, just a quick post, I have a ton of projects to show you, but for now, I just want to share this:

Knitting goals for 2009:

1) I want to make a sweater. Possibly this one or this one.

2) Socks, because I love hand knit socks, are going to be big for me, I hope.

3) A shawl for me, probably Icarus since I started that (and frogged it but that's cause the yarn is icky, I ordered better) already. Want to see the yarn I ordered? It's pretty. Clicky here. :)

4) I want to learn a new technique. Possibilities are: steeking, intarsia in the round, and really complicated lace.

5) Finish. Mom's. Tablecloth.

Happy New Year!!

Good goals. I plan on making a sweater too! I just got the yarn to make the Must Have Cardigan.

Ambitious goals... a sweater and a shawl! I don't know if I could pull that off in the same year.

Steeking scares me. I mean, you spend all this time knitting and then you CUT it?! Eeeks! I'm going to learn a new technique this year too, but it's a relatively safe one I think, socks.
