Yet Another Unexplained Absence...
Please accept my apologies. In the meantime, the family Christmas looked like this:
I know, it looks crazy doesn't it? Two are mine, three are my sisters and SIX are my brothers (three are only temporary). The age range is 2 1/2 to 19! You can see the evidence of my knitting on several of these young people, and they were quite happy to receive. At the end of the day, I had requests for two more Sockhead hats. One hat is finished and living in Vancouver already.
2010 Knitting Roundup
posted a spreadsheet about her 2010 knitting mileage. Well, that's just a personal challenge in my little brain, so I pulled some numbers from my Ravelry
- 1 baby gift
- 12 hats
- 26 pair of socks
- 2 sweaters
- 1 wrap
I used a total of 16,988 yards of yarn or the equivalent of 9.65 miles of yarn! Many of the socks went into my sock gift basket and very few remained after Thanksgiving. I picked out one pair to keep and the rest will be donated. With the exception of most of the Sockhead hats, I also donated most of the hats.
My goal this year is to continue to use up my stash yarn - I hope to knit at least three hats in January. I am participating in Samantha' Roshak's sweater KAL this year, so I plan to finish at least 4 sweaters and I hope to complete 12+ pair of socks. Flint
is the first sweater in this KAL and I am just about ready to start on the sleeves. Hopefully, things will settle down a little so I can get some photos taken and share some WIP and an FO! I barely got photos of most of the finished Sockhead Hats - believe it or not!
Well, the sun is shining, so I think I am off to take some photos!
