Above is a mosaic of the 16 finished items from 2009. It seems a fitting post to write on the 31st of December 2009. The year seemed to fly by and I’m happy to have all of this work to show. I think it’s definitely a record for me – I’ve never finished so much knitting in one year before. I credit this prolific work to three things: 1. my knitting friends are so creative and inspiring that I feel constantly energized and encouraged by them; 2. Ravelry has opened my eyes to knitting possibilities I never would have thought of, and has created a world-wide community of knitting friends to draw inspiration and information from; and last but not least, 3. DB, who not only puts up with my obsession but actually encourages me to stretch the boundaries of my hobby and craft. THANK you to all the knitters and non-knitting encouragers in my life.
