Looking back on 2010, I can’t quite believe how much I got done in the wool-related part of my life. Despite having the house on the market for half the year, I kicked out these patterns:
No, we haven’t sold the house yet, but we’re going to try again starting early in the new year.
Oh, and I also ran 2 knit alongs. In July it was the Eiffel Tower Shawl with the Tour de France, and then in December we’ve been doing scarves. Thanks to all who joined in. I am working on cooking up a new idea for another Tour de France KAL next July.
Late this year I learned to spin on a spindle. I love my Golding! That only started recently, but it’s safe to say that I’m hooked. I’ve got about 1200 yards of singles to ply into heavy laceweight. Then I want to create a new design especially for it. That should be fun!
Over the holidays I’ve started teaching my daughter to knit. She’ll be 6 in February. We’re going to have another little session today. Although she’s talked about wanting to learn before, I think what made this happen was that another friend her age has learned.
I’m looking forward to more knitting, spinning & designing in 2011. I’ve got plans and ideas and am looking forward to seeing what happens next!
Happy New Year!
