My New Year

I had the Perfect New Year's Eve/New Year's Day.

I spent it knitting.

But not just any knitting.

Pirate Knitting

That's right. I was PIRATE KNITTING.

But it gets better.

What's even better than Pirate Knitting you ask?

I'll tell you. It's Pirate Knitting with Katrina!

Yarn PornAt the stroke of midnight, in two different cities, in two different time zones (so I guess that was two different strokes of midnight) we cast on using the same yarn, and the same pattern.

Excitement was high in the air as I waited for the ball to drop. I gathered the fortifications I would need for our endeavor.


You can see all the necessities are there, yarn, needles, pattern, caffeine, chocolate, and Captain Jack Sparrow (because one simply can not pirate knit without Captain Jack Sparrow).

Early ProgressAt the stroke of midnight I cast on. Feverishly I knitted...fourteen rows. And then I went to bed. But don't worry. I spent New Year's Day knitting as well. When I called it a night last night I had this done.

End of day 1

Remember when I said I wanted to knit less this year? You know I meant over the overall course of the year. I didn't necessarily mean today. You understand that right? I can't just stop cold turkey. I need time to wean myself from the yarn. HEY! Stop judging me!

What a great day and a great way to ring in the new year. This is too much fun.

Wow! Impressive! Are you two going to synchronize the cast on of sock #2 too?

Silly Lady.
You kill me with how quickly you whip something up. I haven't knit in four weeks.

Less knitting...what kind of goal is that?!? I'm think'in you need saved from yourself on this one.

Areli said...

Sounds like so much fun :-)

Less knitting doesn't mean no knitting and what better way to ring in the New Year.

I SERIOSLY doubt that much could be better than knitting and my Captain Jack. Mmmmm...
