So way back on April 30th, I cast on the Soledad sweater by Annika Barranti, using Knit Picks Merino Style in the Storm colorway. I totally cheated and skipped the arms, and went straight for the body, with the fun cable. I'm currently suffering through the arms, but it's sized for a 2-year-old, so it's really not that bad.
I have two main knitting themes this year: selfishly knitting stuff that's just really cool (like Galadriel's Mirror), and what this falls into, using up as much of the leftovers in my stash as I can. In fact, I actually went and bought more yarn today, in the interests of stash busting - how counter-intuitive is that? (The BF was not able to wrap his head around the concept.) I have no idea how much that means I'll actually get done this year, but the stash will definitely thank me for it.
