I'd knit simple fingerless mitts in Monsoon.
I would choose Mal Mechita 698 Moon Trio Cresc. Thanks...
I like Estrellita Beautiful Dreamer.
Love Beach House and Moon Dust.
Soo hard to chose...they are gorgeous! Love Sunflower and Rabbit Hole.
I've been knitting for about 6 years. Self taught. I would really would like to knit an actual pair of socks. Don't know why I haven't taken the jump yet. My first ever knitted item was a cabled scarf, the second was a brioche wrap. I would also like to knit a sweater one day.
I'd pair together Frost and Rumor.
I'd make Beezee
I'd make the cowl in Sandalwood and Dark Ginger.

I would definitely would prefer to have a DK weight shawl. I would choose Oak, Court and Spark and Life in Mars... I also love the colors Joji made her Odyssey Shawl with. I'm in the middle of a Winter Windstorm (Upstate NY), at the moment. It has been a very long winter.
9653. Reminds me of all the dragonflies that come around in the summer.
I have a noteand at the end of the year list goals. I evaluate how I did and I tweak for the next year. Nest year I want to learn new techniques in knitting. (ie. socks, brioche, mosaic,stranded colorwork) I also want to spin as a priority and sew. For personal goals...I want to get fit and make time for myself. (a priority for 2019) I would also like to take a road trip or do a retreat.

My standout project this year is the "Garter Squish" by Steven West. It turned out Queen sized and EPIC!! My youngest son will get it for Christmas... He asked for a blanket. And boy is he getting I also completed 3 other blankets and a ton of other projects. It was a very productive year. I don't have small kids so I have tons of time for me... :)

Years ago, my adult kids and I opted out of doing big gift shopping. I always get my kids and their people something. I'm a giver and want everyone to open something for Christmas. This year, amazingly, I knitted, crocheted or baked all the gifts I'm giving. The only online shopping I did was for myself! lol All yarny related and wrapped... (Is that weird to wrap gifts for yourself?!) lol

I try to make someone laugh as I am out and about on shopping days.... Releases happy chemicals... :o)
Oh yes...thought I was the only one. In addition to my studio where there is a LOT of yarn... I usually have a basket or bowl with seasonal colors displayed in my office on my desk. I work from home. I also have a bowl in my bedroom with a skein to match my decor.

Absolutely a coffee person. HOT and lots of it. NOT a fan of Starbucks or Dunkin Donut. I do love McDonalds coffee though. I make my own at home usually..It's from Aldi's and wonderful. I buy flavored coffee when available and for the holidays. Now enjoying coffee with White Chocolate Raspberry creamer.
