Happy New Year! We had a glorious day here with sunshine and a high temp of 50 degrees. That doesn’t happen very often on January 1st. I took full advantage of it – working both horses, picking up manure, and picking up rocks. All of those tasks would happen rain or shine, but it sure was nice to have an unexpected warm and sunny day.
I wasn’t sure if I knit enough projects to even bother with a yearly recap. I was pleasantly surprised though, to see that I knit 16 items (even if a couple of them were exceedingly easy). Here they are:
16 total projects:
– 2 pairs of socks
– 1 pair of fingerless mitts/wristwarmers
– 4 scarves
– 4 shawlettes
– 1 shawl (a 2nd shawl is SO close to being done)
– 2 baby hats
– 1 adult hat
– 1 silly project (cat bed)
for a total of 5,679 yards.
I said last year, “I am well aware I won’t be knitting quite as much as in 2010.” Well, that would certainly be true – much time was given to going to school and bringing the horses home. The blog has been somewhat neglected as well.
All in all I’m quite happy with what I accomplished knitting wise. I’m also enjoying going to school and I’m thrilled to have my horses at home. I’d say it was a good year!
