This is one of my favourite times of the year. The stresses and strains of Christmas are over but there is New Year celebrations to look forward to. I can still legitimately drink mulled wine but there are no presents to wrap. Sitting on the cusp of the old and the new is a very exciting time for me. With only a few days left of 2014, I’ve taken stock of my knitty achievements. And I’m pleasantly surprised. I’ve posted over 30 patterns this year. Judging from the number of visitors, the wider knitting community also enjoys what I’ve thought up!
I’ve made over 40 items – big and small. I couldn’t pick a favourite if I tried. I loved treating my little (!) boy to his ribbed colour block jumper and my current all time favourite top is the body warmer I made in a few afternoons. I also know that my aunt rather likes her spiral socks whereas my dog really doesn’t like her dog coat. Obviously I can’t ask any of the babies whether they like their blankets, but I made no less than three of them, so there is a good chance that at least one of them is appreciated!
I didn’t make any New Year’s resolutions in January so I have no yardstick to measure my knitty success. However, completing, on average, a project every 1.3 weeks is not bad! Does show that I commute a lot…
So here’s wishing you all a very Happy New Year – let it roll on!
