Knitting Year in Review
Yeah, okay, so it's not much of a "year" when you've only really learned to knit in July, and have only been seriously knitting since November ^^;; so, many a Christmas 2007 review? *sigh* I'm special.
*ahem* Onward! The final count:
2 pairs of mittens, one of them fingerless
4 scarves (1 repeat)
1 dish cloth
1 pair of slippers
1 bag that I really need to line! Gah~!
The biggest loser was probably the bag since I keep meaning to finish it, but never do ^^;; (And you don't even get to see a picture of it so there!)
In first place I think I'll put Dashing fingerless mittens that I knit for my friend Lise (They're going in the mail soon, I promise!) in England because learning how to cable was a pretty big wall for me and I was pretty nervous about it. Thanks to these mittens, I'm fearless!
In close second I think I'll put the mittens I made for Grandpa for Christmas. Another hurdle was colour-work. At least to this degree. I think I was expecting it to be more difficult…
New years eve was an enjoyable evening with some friends, and I started a sweater so that's a great way to start the new year I think!
I was resisting doing the typical new years resolutions this year, but I think maybe I can make some knitting resolutions.
1) Finish this sweater this year. I don't know how ambitious this is, but I do know that I have a crappy attention span so we'll have to wait and see if I lose interest or not.
2) Go to at least one knitting gathering a month
3) Participate in at least one swap per season
4) blog at least once per week (to encourage knitting? Perhaps ^_^)
5) knit a pair of socks!
