And I trust 2009 has been treating you well thus far!
Been seeing the whirlwind of everyone's "new year posts" and have enjoyed reading/scanning thru them ;op
Now appease me for a moment, as I still have to document highlights (= not all of them) of my Knit Reflections from this past year and want to share them now as my 2008 Knit Year in Review
I ended up getting Dye-Virgintized
And had a great learning experience on dyeing my own yarn!! Hopefully, I will knit with it this new year Haha!
Then I truly started knitting fearlessly!!
Hemlock really changed it for me, and opened up a new level of getting beyond what was my "safe knitting".
I took my very 1st knit retreat to Purl Jam over the summer! And met some really great people!! Shortly afterwards I exercised my needles on making more Socks
And then went into a knitting comatose participating in Ravelympics! Haha!My Indigo Ripple Skirt is one of my favorite knits from the year....okay who am I kidding it is THE one! ;o)
But I so love my malabrigo loafers, Ponchita, my 4,821 neckwarmers (tee hee), etc. I could keep going! ;op
I never got around to blogging about it but I actually tried out Spinning this past fall!It was definitely an experience and you gotta get the hang of it. Glad that I tried it out and exposed myself to something different!!
Here is the fruit of my labor on my own spindle! ;op
And it hasn't grown either Haha!
Now.....I can firmly say that I am more than willing to kick in the extra dollars in buying all of my fiber already dyed and spun for me! ;op
In keeping with my tradition of not doing a mosaic of all my finished objects, I decided this time to do a Slideshow: 2008 Knit Year in Review
If you are not feeling motivated or too antsy to wait on a slideshow you can click on the 'finished objects' link (for the project details) that is listed below on my blog or click here for a f.lickr mosaic.
Keeping my thoughts and mind on the future!
I would like to knit more socks and doing some colorwork projects, along with more sweaters!
I have much more I want to talk to you all about, but this will do for now.
And I have my 1st F.O. for 2009 to show too! ...y'all know the drill...as soon as I can get good pics I will load it up! :o)
Have a memorable MLK weekend!!
