you and your daughter are both so beautiful - you make the creations even lovelier than they already are. :)

and who can resist the grands? :)

Sue/the view from great island said...

That is an amazing lineup of gorgeous knitting projects. I am insanely jealous, I can't knit but I go crazy for the beautiful colors and textures!

Annette T. said...

Wow, I don't know how you did it all! Your projects are so beautiful. You have me looking for a Noro counter part yarn I could use for the Lisa shawl! I'm not too good at substituting yarns! I know what you mean about unfinished projects, I have a few paintings that are calling me! Good luck on your move and happy packing!

Chatty Crone said...

I too am insanely jealous - of your talent - oh if I could do some wonderful and delicate items. I love that first one - I have never seen anything as beautiful as that.

Are you moving?

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

You are so productive, Tanna! They are all knitted works of art.

Glad to hear your move is going well!

Sandy said...

What can I say, dear Tanna? You know I just drool at every project and say that it's my favorite. I remember each piece and seeing them all together like this is nothing short of amazing. Beautiful creations! Maybe when I get to heaven I will finally learn how to knit!
Always thinking of you.

Jennifer Holmes said...

Oh my goodness! You know I had to count them! 26 projects = 2.25 per month! All wonderfully exceptional. Thanks for making time to do the review. Delightful to behold.

What a nice review of your beautiful work. There's one I don't see :}. It has kept me so nicely warm in this cold winter. It's my comfort shawl.

HI Tannia WOW! How talented and beautiful you are. These creatives are ALL fantastic. Now as a bird watcher,if I was allowed to pick just one, it would have to be 'Dreambird' it is so stunning.

Wow! I am truly amazed at all the beautiful things you created in one year! I really wish I knew how to knit, but I could never get the hang of it. You and your daughter are so beautiful and make wonderful models for these lovely creations!
Have a wonderful day, Tanna, and I pray your move goes smoothly!

Sigh...... I wish I could knit something that beautiful! They are all so lovely!

Debbie said...

Just beautiful, Tanna. I remembered so many of them, too, so maybe my memory isn't as bad as I think it is these days. Of course, it helps that you have such wonderful models for them.

When I read here, I always think of my MIL and how she would love your creations. You are she would be kindred knitting souls for sure.
