    Thanks so much for the motivation — I am ready to get out some of the unfinished projects and finish them up. My goal for the new year is to work on projects that I have specific yarn in my stash — plenty of those. I also have a lacy garter belt to knit for my wonderful Daughter-in-law to be by late May — exciting event. Love the Lacy hat for you daughter – nice pattern.
