Year of Shannon" is the Swift Hat, cast on in October. I knit this in Cascade Superwash 220 sport, in black. It's leftover from my Soldotna pullover. I love the lace pattern and the fit. It's slouchy but not sloppy.
My November cast-on is on hold while I knit a few small gifts, but I plan to finish it by the end of December. The December project is a garment, yarn and pattern are ready but I'll wait til winter break to cast on so I have time to make some progress on it. Trying not to plan too far ahead, so I can cast on the project that speaks to me each month... but with temperatures dipping well below freezing now I'm definitely ready to immerse myself in some cozy winter knits!
