I admit, I’m tempted to do a retrospective. A look back at the good and the bad of 2007. In fact when I thought of it, I started to think back and think of how to put everything together and then I stopped. I’m really not the best organized person. Actually, I might be in the pile of one of the worst. Some days I’m flabbergasted that I can accomplish anything, my organizational abilities are that bad.
It may be a shock but there are things that I cast on or knit that I don’t ever photograph and blog. Things like hats or sometimes socks. They just get made, gifted, and I forget to mention them. Because of that, I’d have to really work hard to do a year sum up and I’d miss most of those things anyway. My Flickr has all the pictures of the projects that I remembered to blog about.
Let’s just jump right into 2008 but talking about all the things I cast on the end of 2007.
I cast this on New Year’s Eve and finished it New Years day.
It’s the pattern Urchin. I changed it a bit because of the difference in yarn weight and I no longer wrap my stitches. The pattern is super cute though and easy to follow. The yarn for this one is some Aran weight 2 ply that I had made a couple of years ago. It’s plain wool in the Vineyard colorway. I’m hoping i have enough left over to make mittens. I might actually ahve a hat and mitten set that match.
I started a Forest Canopy in “Joshua Tree” worsted weight and the Spring Things Shawl using the kit I set up in “Blue Corn” Shine. I would have more done on Spring things except that I don’t have the pattern memorized and it really was a busy end of the year around here.
That’s it, unless I forgot something. Which is likely….
