Out With the Old

Happy 2012, everyone! 

I can't remember the last time I was so happy to see a calendar turn.  Here's a quick look back at 2011:

There was a little bit of rodeo:

A vest that didn't turn out so well... 

And a shawl that turned out a whole lot better than expected:

I got my heart broken:

Then patched:

And finally healed (Hooray!):

I conquered my fear of stranded colorwork:


Met Ysolda (in a really badly lit room):


And consequently knit a sweater that actually fit me:


I even climbed a mountain:


It's been quite a year, and honestly one of the hardest I can remember.  Here's hoping 2012 holds nothing but happiness and good things for all of us!


  1. Happy New Year! Sounds like 2011 was a bit of a rollercoaster for you! Hoping for all the best for you in 2012.

  2. Happy New Year! I loved your 2011 story. I too waited for calendar to turn and this year - much happier then the previous ones - nice job, good partner, growing up kid :)

  3. What an amazing year! Hope 2012 is more amazing.

  4. Best wishes for 2012. Here's hoping it's the best yet!

  5. Best wishes for a great 2012. Your red cabled vest and the colorwork hat are gorgeous!

  6. hey chick.
    what a year.
    I still cant get over how amazing that hat is.
    I hope that 2012 is so much better for you not only in your knitting but in all the other stuff too.
    Can't wait to see how it progresses.
    all the best
