Come December, I always think I haven’t gotten nearly as much done as I wanted to. While this is definitely true for the state of the house, when I go back into my “2011 Knitting” photo album, it turns out I did get a decent amount done.
To recap — I knit my first complete adult sweater:
I made 8 pairs of socks (including a baby sized pair, and 2 Christmas stockings). I also made 26 blanket squares. No, I haven’t assembled it into a complete blanket yet:
I seem to knit in blue more often than any other color. I made several bookmarks that are going unused. I made even more dishcloths (I completely need to find a home for those – I have at least 20 sitting in a bin).
Today I spent a couple of hours taking pictures of a lot of my yarn stash to upload into Ravelry I dutifully weighed things so I could be more sure about the amount of yardage I actually have. I’ve realized that I have some more I have specific plans for, but that I didn’t catalog.
Also in 2011:
- Travel hockey ended (and didn’t start back up again – just house league)
- We spent a large part of the summer with extended family
- The boys won ribbons in the state fair for art work
- Birthdays were celebrated
- Friends visited
- New things were learned
- Noise was made
- Books were read and listened to
“A good time was had by all.”
