That's a wrap

One of the reasons I started this blog is to stay in close touch with family and friends. I was warmly surprised on Christmas Day as I made my phone calls, to have numerous extended family members tell me how much they enjoy my blog. I am so glad that people are reading and enjoying it. I would say that is one goal accomplished.

Another reason for blogging is to keep track of knitting accomplishments throughout the year. Last January, the Purling P's suggested 2006 be renamed 200Socks. This sounded like a fun adventure and I happily signed up. In 2006, I completed 6 pair of socks. That's a pair every other month. I'm pretty pleased with this!

Now, for the list (drumroll......)

THE LIST OF SHAME
or what I did not finish last year
Single Pomatomus, Looking For Mate

WOW!!!!! I cannot believe I finished 5 sweaters last year! Sure, 3 of them were started the year (or 10) before, but still, that's pretty impressive for me! I really tried to focus on finishing what I started, and ripping what wasn't working, which leaves me in a much better place this year than last. I only have one single sock in search of a mate. I enter 2007 with a clear conscience and clean needles! What fun!
