New Year Wrap Up

I haven't blogged as much as I thought I might this year. The coming of Ravelry saw to that. Adding pictures and projects on there makes the blog seem a little redundant. Blogging has also been slower than I thought with my dial up connection. This year it'll be different. I have a new camera that takes great pictures, and we're getting high speed internet in the next few weeks. So more to come. . .
As far as knitting goes I'm going to make a list of all the things I have knitted this year. Heck-- I might even throw in some pictures.
I made:
1. 4 pairs of socks (one for my sock pal, one for my sister, one for my mom, and one I frogged already for myself)
embossed leaves for Kari
2. 1 pair of mittens(bird in hand)
3. 3 adult sweaters
4. 4 children's sweaters
5. 1 purse
6. 5 pairs of felted slippers
first pair for Michael
7. one scarf
8. 2 headbands
one for my mil
9. 3 Christmas stockings

New Years knitting resolutions?

  1. Try steeking(bought a Dale of Norway book so I'm half way there)

  2. Knit Dan's sweater in time for our sixth anniversary

  3. Knit Dan some socks.

  4. Knit more socks in general

  5. Finish up my UFOs that are hibernating on Ravelry

  6. Make Christmas stocking for Dad, Mom, and my family.

Here's to a Happy New Year!
