Summing Up & Looking Ahead

Thanks to the wonder that is Ravelry I am able to tell you after less than a minute of figuring, that in 2011 I completed 46 projects. Many of those projects were pairs of things (10 pairs of socks, for example) and two were sets of four. I made 13 hats and 9 toys, a couple of baby blankets, some sweaters, baby booties, slippers, two scarves and some fingerless mitts. I wonder what I'll make this year?

One knitting goal I have set for myself (aside from my on-going project to knit something for each of the 50 states) is to knit up as much as possible of the yarn in the photo above. This is by no means all of the yarn I have in my stash today, but it's a pretty good-sized chunk of it. Of course, having all of this yarn doesn't stop me from buying more (if you're a knitter or crocheter, you're nodding your head right now, aren't you?). So it's time to put the stash on a diet, and that should be helped by a couple of projects I already have in mind. One of them is an afghan for Liat (for which she has been waiting patiently for quite a long time now). I also forsee quite a few toys, more hats, and who knows what else? It will be a lot of fun to find out!

I just love your goal about sending a hand-crafted item to a charity in each of the 50 states. I read that on Ravelry a few days ago and I meant to PM you about it then. That goal is just awesome.

Oh gosh, I'm bad too. I used to buy for designated projects. I still do but indulge on what I want as well. That's a great resolution for 2012.

Wow! I'm impressed with all you have accomplished knitwise this past year. I know you will do even more in 2012 :>0
