Breiwick & what-nots

I've been meaning to update - honest! Seriously though, I've been in a bit of a knitting slump lately. Maybe it was the ginormous amount of knitted presents I spewed forth at Christmas time but for the last month, I can't seem to get inspired by anything. Even my Dream in Color Classy which came a couple of weeks ago. Actually, I do have plans for that - a beret called Breiwick designed by Gudrun Johnson. So this:

...will become this:

I was actually afraid my red hair would clash with the color of the Dream in Color yarn but this picture of Gudrun reassured me of any potential clashiness. Oh! I've also started work on a 2009 afghan, knitting two squares a month using a different pattern every month. I'm using Vanna's Choice Solids because who the hell can afford an afghan out of anything besides acrylic? Anyhow, here are January's squares:

February's squares are still in the works but not moving along very speedily because of wonderful, glorious midterms! Ooh, and I just got a peek at the Spring Interweave Knits. Their last few issues have been a bit of a let-down but being a complete cardigan junkie, I'm so excited there are some good patterns this time around. I really like the Millefiori cardigan, I might need to use my Rowan Felted Tweed for that.

That Dream in Color is super pretty! And I think I might steal your blanket idea, I've always wanted to finish an afghan but have ZERO patience for it!
