Here is a look at my knitting for 2010:
This is the lazy gal's mosaic, a Ravelry screen grab, so you'll have to click on the photo if you want to see anything! Except for the Starbucks bear, which was knitted at Christmastime the year before, this is what was finished in 2010.
There are several projects I'm really happy with, such as Magnolia, the gray pullover on the bottom row. I wear this all the time, which is kind of a first for me because I don't usually wear any one of my sweaters a lot. I also get random compliments on it from people who don't know I made it, which is nice. The other one I'm happy with is the black Origami Pullover in the middle row. It's another simple knit that's easy to wear.
Like most knitters, my goal for 2011 is to knit more! I know to be successful this has to be quantified in some way, but that's the basic desire. And, like many knitters, my other goal is to knit from my stash. I've become very discerning about what knitting books I allow in any more, but not so about the yarn. Over the past year, I added four sweaters' worth of yarn to my stash, one skein of Malabrigo sock made it in, and some other single balls were gifted to me during the year. All beautiful things, now just waiting to be knit.
In addition to knitting goals, I also have other crafting goals in the form of finishing some quilt projects:
getting back to my drawing:
and doing more reading, sewing, and even reading about sewing:
Ah, the possibility of a new year!
To start our lives anew;
This time we’ll leap old barriers
To have a real breakthrough.
And then we’ll take one more,
Our unlimited potential
We’ll totally explore.
Everyone will be inspired;
(Whew! While I’m writing this,
I’m getting very tired.)
We’ll read and learn a lot,
All our goals will be accomplished,
Sigh...or maybe not.
