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)
56 FO’s! seeeeee, the yarn stash is justified. Before Kailey was born, I learned a new technique: toe up socks
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!
You certainly did have a productive 2007 and the blessing of Kailey is indeed the best thing ever.
A very happy and prosperous new year to you!
I love ALL your pictures……especially the one of all the finished pink socks…..well…maybe the one of Kailey wearing that adorable sweater. Actually, I like the one of you in your sweater. Aw heck, they are ALL nice. You accomplished much in 2007!
Great FOs – especially that last one! What a cutie – and a great knitwear model, too!
Very cute pictures! You had a super productive 2007. Way to go.
I think she is the best FO of the year too. I miss little babies. My youngest just turned two. =(
Fair Isle is something I’d like to try in the next year, too. I’m really kind of intimidated by colorwork in general. But then again, when I first started knitting I was terrified of working in the round.
All your FOs look fantastic, especially the sweater. I think somehow I missed that before; it’s great! And they baby is pretty cool, too, hahah!
Happy 2008 to you too 🙂
Wow, not only was 2007 productive, but it was beautifully productive.
I know the baby is supposed to be my favorite, but since I don’t have kids, I’d say my favorite is the pink STR’s. So cute.
