Happy Ney Year and January Starts

Hi, everyone. Happy New Year! I hope you all have a healthy and wonderful 2010. My start for January is a "Gathered Scarf " from Ravelry. It is actually made from a sweater that the kids won't let me get rid of. They were always on top of me when I wore it. I have never recycled this way but the kids are excited to see it in a new way. It uses two size needles and it is super fun to do. I also have a skein of Cocoa Mint Panda Soy for this month. But, I can't pick a pattern.
Any ideas? Darin is still un-employed and we are only living on $175.00 a week due to an adjustment in his baseline. He worked for two weeks last summer and was $98.00 over the minimum (for a family of four.) EEK. So, no yarn budget until he gets work. But I have some stash. I will pray for you all if you pray for me! Have a fun day. xxooxx, Jody

This is a fun and easy one-skein scarf pattern:

Makes for good car knitting since you can easily memorize the pattern.

I did not see this one! I think I am going to give it to the Grandma who received the socks (that I made with my past cocoa-mint winnings!) It is perfect for the yarn and my friend! Thanks!
