except for the few (ok, not so few, but its somewhat close to 10) that haven’t been photographed yet. (I’m getting there! Look for a week of FO’s. its coming, and its gonna be scary.) 2009 was a very prolific knitting year for me. 58 knitting projects on rav. going through flickr there where
7 (one not pictured) pairs of mittens/fingerless mitts
5 (one not pictured) baby/child knits
16 (7 not pictured) softies/mini’s
I’ve come a long way since fun fur scarves seven (7!!!) years ago, now I’m designing my own patterns. I have quite a few written up for free here (but you already know that if you’ve been following me for awhile). I have a few designing goals for myself for 2010, I plan on writing up more of my patterns and am feeling like my patterns might be polished enough to sell! My other goal is to learn to steek, yes this will be the year. No if ands or butts about it, this will be the year. I’m going to try to participate in a year in pictures on flickr. And hopefully get my crafty butt in gear and maybe be more prolific and start doing craft shows again, maybe I’m not sure. And ya I’m going to attempt to knit some of the stash. No yarn diet per say, but I wonder how much of the yarn I bought from 2009 and older I can use up. These may sound like a lot of goals, but really they are things that are going to end up happening naturally in my life, well most of it anyway.
2009 wasn’t a bad year it was definitely a crafty one, I canned more. Preserved peaches for the first time, frozen some green beans and peas, also made jam again for the first time in a few years. I became a better spinner this year, still not great but certainly better. It’s still sad to see another year slip by. Goodbye 2009, and here’s to 2010. You all have my best wishes for a lovely year. Its sure to be a good one.
Now where the frick is my flying car?
PS Mike, his brother and his brother’s helper are finishing up the mudroom today. They have insulated it and I believe they are almost done putting up the walls. There is a strange burned sawdust smell in my kitchen (which leads into the mudroom). I’m really looking forward to the extra storage out there but I really, really want the cubbies in the kitchen for all of us.
PPS I’m not sure if I’m going to make it to midnight tonight. Mike got home late last night from a day trip he had to take. Sometimes its hard to go back to sleep after I’ve been woken up. Boy I hope I can make it to midnight!
