Knitting Review 2011
Knitting 2011 started out with a little Kimono for a sweet little girl. Had kind of a slow start, with only three projects before June brought us The Littlest Man.
Vogue Wide-Brimmed Hat went to dear daughter.
Cozy shawl went to a prayer shawl ministry (actually crocheted).
Then, there was the Coming Home Gown for The Littlest Man in June.
And, probably the most fun project I have ever done, a Lion Mane (crochet) and Loincloth (knit). Littlest Man's mother and I had way too much fun with this one! Just realized I did leave out a "goat hat" that I don't have a photo of that I did while teaching Amanda to knit.
This was quick and easy and oh, so fun to wear this summer! It travelled to Italy and felt right at home there with all the wonderful romance.
Another of my favorite shawls, the Ginkgo.
A Sursa Shawl (with modifications... now, belongs to another friend) in Noro.
Entrelac hat #1... a fun knit-a-long project.
Baby sweater for a sweet ex-tenants new baby. (Don't know why blogger turned it, but I'm not going back to try to change it!!)
Entrelac #2 for a dear friend's birthday.
Pumpkin hats galore!!
Great fitting, easy little Weekend Cardi.
I have such a hard time choosing a favorite among my shawls... but, this one rivals them all. Wear it A LOT!
This was an ambitious project... came out well... but, I don't LOVE it. Kaw Valley Wrap. Hoping summer months make me enjoy it more.
This was Elfin Hat number 2, so that Littlest Man would have one to match Little Man's from last year.
Three stockings were made... one with serious flaws in its snowflake. Still have two more to make to fill my order. ;) A little behind for Christmas.
Made my dear, dear friend Kathy a Sirdar Waistcoat just like mine.
And, the last project... Whew!... is this scarf. 2011 started out slow on the knitting projects, but averaged out to two projects a month. I'm okay with that. Here's to 2012!
If you made it this far, thank you for indulging my record of the year in yarn!! Have a great day!

ps - Dotsie at Podso (who always has wonderful mosaics) introduced me to Picnik and I did have a little fun playing with that this afternoon! Hmmmm... I can see experiments brewing!
