I did, waving hand madly!

(I see many started 'early'... but that's OK, there really aren't any hard and fast 'rules' to a NYCO, except, it has to be for yourself, and it can take all year!)

I am trying to decide between Backyard Leaves and Ene's Scarf, from Scarf Style. The yarn for each is sitting in front of me.

That's a tough decision, GFTC. Both are beautiful and look like they are fun to make. I want to cast on for the Branching Out Scarf eventually, but I'm happily doing my North Sea Shawl now while I recover from a cold. You mean we were supposed to cast on for our NYCO project exactly today?!? Oops. I finished my second fingerless mitt about two hours ago and can't wait for it to dry. I'm afraid another project will have to wait (notice an unusual demonstration of self-restraint here).

I have socks in progress. They have been for a few months now, but that is 'cause they got put aside for xmas stuff. I have a Linux scarf started for DH, but the knitting is really for me. I am really enjoying the shadow knitting. I bought some lace yarn to play with, but have not cast on yet. Still trying to decide exactly what I want to do with it. So, I guess I have kind of done an NYCO. Started early, but that's ok. I have a lot of just for me projects planned for this year. It will be fun.

Take care!

I did. I cast on for the Short Row Hat from Interweave today. It's coming along really quickly.

I cast on for a pair of garter rib socks in Fleece Artist yarn. It's yummy!

Did my gauge swatch yesterday, but this morning cast on for the "Somewhat Cowl": http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/knitandtonic/2005/12/the_somewhat_co.html

I'm using Elann's Highland Silk instead of the Blue Sky Alpaca Silk called for in the pattern, so I've had to adjust things to match my gauge.

I'm working on two pairs of socks for myself and started a Clap (in rather more my style, simple black alpaca) today. It's nice to have the holidays out of the way and go back to the "selfish" projects - in fact, I'm about to go study abroad for a semester and I only packed one skein of yarn specifically for a gift project. The rest of the yarn (90% sock yarn ;) is, potentially at least, for me. Whew! I guess if I come home with 12 new pairs of socks I'll be aaaaalllllll ready to start on next year's holiday season.

OK, I decided on my project and cast on for Backyard Leaves. I've finished 2 repeats and I really like this pattern. It's going quickly because there are never more than 30 someodd stitches on needles at any one time and the pattern is interesting because there is work on both sides rather than purling back.

If anyone is thinking of this pattern, it involves making 2 of the same panels and sewing them together at the cast on ends. If you have "second sock syndrome" you might consider making them both at the same time like sleeves.

Today I cast on and started knitting a roll brimmed hat in Noro Kureyon. I've never knit a hat before and I've never used this yarn--so it was a day of firsts on the first!

Me! I'm making the Misty Garden scarf from scarf style. Loved the colors so much I ordered the very yarn, too - which I normally don't do!

Dang, I have way too many WIPs to justify casting on anything new right about now... need to crochet an edging for the IK Corset Pullover (so the darned thing doesn't fall off my shoulders), reknit the bottom half of a Ballet Pullover (too short and too tight), finish a pair of socks, a baby hoodie, and a blanket... and finish my second Hourglass Pullover... so much to do... but when all that is done, I'm going to break my yarn fast and start a new sweater for myself... I'm thinking Rogue or the Urban Aran from one of those Paton's leaflets...
