It is January 2013 now.

My yarn stash is all over the guest room, and has been for several months now.  I would like to have less yarn around, but when I go to thin out the stash, I end up loving it again.  Even the bright yellow worsted.

I have found that I prefer working in the smaller gauges.  I have also found that working outside of my likes increases my feeling of creativity.  If reducing volume is my goal, then this is the year of worsted weight.

To kick off, I offer the swatch for an almost finished Hedera jacket.  Hedera is from the Nancy Marchant Knitting Brioche book.  All the pieces are knit, and I started sewing it together on Monday.
