Happy 2nd Blog-o-versary

by flowergirlknits

Another year has slipped by, another knitting year filled with ups and downs.

The year included:

  • 11 pairs of socks
  • 3 sweaters
  • 5 cowls
  • 2 hats
  • 2 pairs of mittens
  • 4 fingerless mitts
  • 1 blanket
  • and 2 lace shawls

Whew! Well, that’s what happens when you embrace the hermit lifestyle! Some goals for next year include knitting down the stash (probably good for several years!), finishing more sweaters and improving my rudimentary color-work skills. No doubt I will be tempted by many gorgeous yarns and beautiful patterns that I can’t even imagine yet – the craft of knitting seems to be constantly renewing itself and yet remains grounded in basic principles that have stood the test of time.

It’s an exciting time to be a knitter – I can’t wait to start the next year!
