I have already resolved that in 2011, I am going to 1) take more photographs AND 2) blog more often… so, that means I won’t be such a stranger in my own “house” here at LollyKnitting Around!
I hope you had a wonderful December and a great holiday season. I know it is all very cliche to say, but this year – specifically these last three months – sped by at lightning pace. Our various projects at work and home have taken up almost every bit of free time, leaving very little for the extracurricular… most specifically blogging, knitting, and photography. I have managed to sneak a few minutes here and there reading on the Kindle that I got for my birthday in November (in a short word: LOVE) but most of that came when I was in bed with the flu the days after Christmas!
Alas, another year passes… it’s been a challenging year in a lot of ways, but I like to think that these challenges have helped me grow, making next year (and following years) all the better…
My knitting production has been on the slow side this year – and I do hope to remedy that with some mega-production next year!
16 projects – and wow, looking at this mosaic, it shows that I was a pretty selfish knitter this year… *sheepish*. I did knit a mere 2 things for Baby V… of course, I did knit lots of gifts in 2009… but I hope to do more in 2011. The biggest plus is that ALL of these knits were stashbusts – all yarn that was at least a year in the stash before knitting. That is pretty impressive to me I need to continue on with that tradition in 2011!
2010 also brought some fun travels for us – we got to go to the Vancouver Olympics after a lot of planning – worth every second!
We were also fortunate to be able to go to the northwest again when we went to Alaska in July…
Well I know what I am planning to do tomorrow – not all of 2011, but tomorrow! I will be casting on for a hat for the Ravelry Puck This January Hat Trick knitalong My hockey-loving knitting pals and I have done this for three years: We knit 3 hats in January and have lots of fun doing it! You are more than welcome to join us!
