Yes! It’s the rare Saturday update at WendyKnits! I couldn’t let 2005 slip away without a look back.
On January 1, 2005, I was finishing up a pair of gloves knitted in Koigu. On December 31, 2005 I am working on the second sleeve of my Bohus sweater.
This year I knitted two Alice Starmore designs, 8 lace shawls, several pairs of mittens, some scarves, some sweaters by various designers, and a bunch of my own designs. I spun a whole lotta fiber. I completed my first book and am looking forward to it being published in four months.
I went to the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival and the Knitters Review Retreat. I just came back from a fiber trip to Richmond and Powhatan, Virginia. I knitted and laughed and cried along with my friends. I was lucky enough to meet some of my internet knitting buddies in person. I reconnected with a friend from my youth.
All in all, a good knitting year!
Lucy, The King of All Remote Controls, and I will be ringing in the new year together tonight. We’ll have an elegant dinner (if I don’t screw it up), champagne, and catnip.
Best wishes to you all for a fabulous 2006! May all your WIPs grow into FOs.
