My year in knitting

Happy 2007! So what did 2006 bring knitting-wise? It brought some basic projects and some very time-consuming projects. It brought on felting and a rewarding charity project. I did realize this year that while I’m a slow knitter, I don’t think I knit as slow as I think I do.

Shedir. The hat that started of Made by Hand and a gift to my mother, three years after her death.

A crochet potholder that has too many holes for being really useful, but it was fun and does get some use. I need to work more on crochet.

I’m not much one for resolutions, but this year I want to buy less yarn and use more in my stash. I also want to focus on only two projects at a time. And I want to be less critical of my knitting. And I want to become a knitting designer, yarn shop owner, and spinner. What? A girl can dream…
