New Year - New Fiber

I'm not one to jump on the Nekkid Needles by New Year's bandwagon. Since I enjoy having many projects going at all times, I don't think I've ever had completely nekkid needles.

I usually cast on something new Christmas evening, but this year it was put off until today. I cast on for this Curlicue Coverlet

It is a Mary Maxim kit with Starlette yarn. I chose Medium Willow. I typically don't like to knit with acrylic. However, I do prefer it for afghans and throws for ease of cleaning. This particular yarn doesn't feel like spun plastic, as so many acrylics do. It's quite soft and nice to knit with.

Happy New Year!
