Yeah, yeah, yeah I know its been 2008 for 2 months now. But remember, I kinda fell off the ball and it ran over me. So I’m going to pretend like I was waiting for the Chinese New Year. Ok? Ok good.
2007 was a busy year, it was a good year. I’m a little sad to see it go, but am energized and excited about what 2008 will hold for us. I was a bit productive in the knitting front last year, which you can see all of my FO’s here (Ok, except for the 2 I haven’t blogged about yet)
13- pairs of socks
1- me sized sweater
6- dishcloths (that I bothered to write in my knitting journal)
I love these socks, they are still as vibrant as the day I casted off. I’m sure if I really think about it there was some other new to me knitting technique that I mastered last year. Considering I’ve only been knitting for 4 years.
Here are some FO’s that I feel amazingly brilliant about still:
6 socks from 3 hanks of STR. It makes me very happy.
the colors work beautifully with each other, and its oh, so soft!
I can’t wait for Spring so I can wear this again!
Kailey gets a bunches of complements when she wears this sweater out.
My goal for 2008: I will learn how to knit fair isle. There are so many beautiful fair isle patterns out there, I wanted to learn last year but with a newborn it just wasn’t going to happen. So this year. I.will.learn!
Before I go, my best FO of 2007:
Happy Chinese New Year!
