Happy New Year!

Hey ho a day late.. but better late than never hey?

Had good intentions of writing a post yesterday .. but it kinda slipped by in a haze of sleeping and feeling really ill.. yep we all came down New Years Eve with a bug.. sort of cold/flu type thing.. that is all of us apart from Taryl.. who isn't allowed to be ill as he needs to run around after us ;) lol

Over Christmas he was my little Elf.. helping with all sorts and now having a car came in real handy and Elf's have to stay 'ealthy or so I say!

Any ways, this time last year.. my intention was to knit myself garments and that I did manage.. 7 jumpers, 1 sleeveless top, 2 cardi's, do have a lace weight cardi on needles.. well pleased with that.. my favorites have to be the Mondo Cable Pulli's did 2 of those, followed by Lila (Ravelry Link)

Counting all the garments knitted last year, comes to 33! most of those for Anni and I have the first for this year waiting to be cast on.

Wasn't just garments, did some shawls/shawlettes and all told 11.. 3 of them for me, 2 Pogona's.. love that pattern and did a Ishbel with matching beret.. which came in well used with the cold snap we had in December.. Had hoped to do Damson for my Mum for Christmas but the yarn never arrived and not too sure where it is!

There was a Hat n Scarf set called Joanne, which is on the cover of Yarn Forward 33.

Last but not least was 2 pairs of socks completed, with one pair on needles, one pair was for me and one for a friend of Taryl's who was taken by Tary's hand knitted ones she wanted a pair, also got Tracy (Taryl's GF) to start a sock, she made a good start, with a toe up and I did the heel as that she felt was beyond her and she has the leg to do.. if she even finishes she may do the other ;)

Ended the year by finishing a scarf for Anni and then making a start on Maia (Ravelry link) in gorgeous Supreme Sock yarn YarnAddict Yarns


Wishing you all a wonderful 2011 and it is all you can hope for and more x

Sorry you're feeling ill. HOpe you're better. Wow, you have knitted a lot haven't you?! I've certainly kept you busy enough. I'm amazed you've managed to knit for yourself at all. I'll be in touch with more tomorrow.

Get well soon.

Love the shawl you've started. Can't wait to see the finished shawl.
