a year of making
My completed knits from 2011. It feels like a humblebrag (thanks, LibraryGirl), but it's always interesting for me to see my knitting statistics from a year. And this is [nominally] a craft blog after all. Apparently.
I see I spent the first half of the year knitting cardigans and jumpers, determined to knit actual garments after my big shawl efforts of 2009 and 2010, but then in the latter half of the year suddenly had the urge to knit shawls again and they became my go to projects once more. There is one shawl missing from that mosaic as it has a half dozen rows to go, but it lives in my office at work and I add to it slowly, despite casting on in July. It will be finished in the next month or so and can go in the 2012 stats.
As for my sewing achievements, I failed to catalogue them properly. I made a doily skirt, and several quilt tops which to my shame I have yet to turn into actual quilts. I also made a number of cushions, some tops, and several pairs of pants which remain unphotographed.
Also, lots of jam, marmalade, soap, bread, meals, and mess.
PS. For those of you more interested in literary news, I updated my 2011 reading log over here.
