I could do a bunch of 2010 in review posts about all areas of my life but, let’s face it, I am pretty obsessed with my crafting so I guess it seems appropriate that this last post of 2010 would be all about what I knit this year. (I’ll do a New Year’s post about 2011 soon!)
My biggest accomplishment this year was the shawls project. In January, I undertook a challenge to knit 10 shawls in 2010. Well apparently I cannot count, because lo and behold, I ended up with 16 beautiful shawls:
But that’s not all I knit. Somehow, I also managed two sweaters, a tank top, several pairs of socks, a few hats and scarves, two afghans and enough other projects that I knit 50 things in 2010!
Today I spent in a flurry trying to photograph everything before the year closed. Of course, it was 37 degrees out and I needed to model my new hat:
This year has been a GREAT year craftwise. I picked up a new craft, spinning, and I’m about to embark on a third, weaving. Yes that’s right. No sooner had I written my last post about bartering for woven scarves than I opened up my Christmas present from Wes – an Ashford Knitters’ Loom!
I’m looking forward to a fabulous 2011 filled with warm woolen sweaters, more shawls, an afghan for my home, and who knows what else?
I hope you’re having a happy, healthy, and WARM New Year!
