First Finished Object of 2011

Snow is softly falling outside my window this morning. The house is quiet, and I've got a nice cup of coffee sitting next to me. Welcome Saturday morning!

I've finished my first project of the New Year last week. It's an iPad cozy for my Aunt. She opted to forgo the button closure, because she didn't want the button to scratch her screen. I can't say that I disagree with her at all, but IMHO, I think it might resemble a water bottle without that button......ah well. She likes it, and that's all that matters. I enjoyed knitting it too!

IPad cozy - pattern here
PS - Pattern is free!
Yarn - Nature Spun Worsted in Stone colorway (my oldest stash).
Size US #8 needles.
This pattern taught me a lot of things.....
Judy's Magic Cast On for knitting in the round.
Cabling without a cable needle (okay, this is my second project utilizing this technique, but it's still new to me).
Use that stash yarn! This is probably the oldest yarn in my stash. I'm glad it's finally getting put to good use!

I've not made goals or resolutions for myself lately, because I usually fail miserably at them, but I have made a firm decision.
I want to be a prolific knitter. In order to do this, I must spend more time knitting. I already knit quite a bit, but often times, I don't record my projects in Ravelry, and I don't take the time to photograph (however measly my attempts) my projects. This is something I would like to make a conscious effort to do this year.
Hmmm....that sounds an awful lot like a New Year's resolution to me!
