Knitting in 2008

2008 Knits!

There were socks.

There were original designs.

There were lots of things that rocked!

There were baby things.

There were sweaters. That fit.

There was a toilet paper cozy (seriously!) and a monkey. And sock camp.

There were more socks.


There was a sweater that really really rocked!

The Wizard

There was a little bit of stash enhancing on a fabulous July day.

There were many knits. Many memories. Many friends. And I know it is a blessing to have the ability to enjoy this passion that brings me such joy.

Here's to many more memories in the new year!

Happy happy new year!

I didn't even THINK about new years postings until I saw your post. Hmm. Maybe tomorrow then. Happy New Year! You've accomplished quite a bit this year!

Donna said...

I want to jump into the picture and steal your yarn!

And yes - that sweater does rock. It came out beautiful.

Very impressive year of knitting. Have a happy and healthy New Year to come!

Jocelyn said...

What a rocking year for knitting for you!

That rockin' sweater should have a monument all its own. "The Sweater That Truly Rocks!" Amen.

Glad to have found you and hope to be rockin' right there with you in 2009.

Have a happy, blessed, healthy, prosperous and peaceful New Year.

Isn't it fun to see everything in one tidy little mosaic? A whole year's worth! Very nice! Happy New Years!

You have such a great blog. I find myself clicking on your site to get inspiration and see all the amazing things you've knit up during the year. Love it!! Happy 2009.

I just counted 12 pairs of socks - TWELVE PAIRS OF SOCKS!!!! That's one pair per month!

So. If you knit one pair of socks per month just out of your STR stash, how many years would it keep you going? If you made that a competition, my guess would be20 years. How close would I be?

hee hee, Happy New Year Irishgirlie. I love your mosaic - you really knit a lot of beautiful things this year :0)

Like weaving, knitting is a technique for producing a two-dimensional fabric made from a one-dimensional yarn or thread.
