Winding down

So, I feel like I should do a year-end wrap-up. But I just finished off half a dozen writing assignments and my brain is shot. Maybe I'll just count my FOs there in the sidebar instead:
  • 14 pairs of socks (the River Rapids are done, just need to snap pics and do the write-up)
  • 11 hats
  • 4 toys
  • 3 sweaters
  • 3 home thingys (industry term)
  • 3 scarves
  • 2 pairs of fingerless mitts
  • 1 ascot
  • 1 wrap
  • 1 bag
That's 43 FOs for 2007. Not bad, eh? That's 17 more than 2006. Although, in all fairness, I didn't learn to knit until May last year, so 2007 did have the advantage of time!

The difference, I think, is in what I've knitted and how they've turned out. There are one or two duds of suckage, but for the most part, I actually wear most of the things I've made this year, and often.

Right now, my Stashmina (shown in the header) is getting the most use. Turns out it works very nicely a big ass scarf! But, if I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be my Central Park Hoodie.

CPH, you rock my world.

I love this thing. *sigh*

Well, that's about all my muddled brain can handle right now. Hope you all have a safe, fabulous, and very Happy New Year! See you in 2008!

Happy new year! I think you should also be quite proud of the way you've stepped it up in 2007 -- you've done some pretty impressive projects considering you only started knitting a year and a half ago!
