I hope you all had a smashing Christmas and New Year with your loved ones.
I've missed being here in blogland so I thought it was time to remedy that.
Not being one to spend time looking backwards I surprised myself recently by scrolling back through my knitting projects on Ravelry. It dawned on me that, for some strange reason, 2010 proved to be a year dominated by all things wool - and when I say dominated I do of course mean totally and utterly obsessively dominated to the exclusion of all else.
A quick tot up of my projects has led to some interesting results that I thought might be fun to share.
Total knitting/crochet projects completed in 2010: fifty three (or possibly more).
28 thumb wrestlers (counted as 1 project made up of many parts!)
13 pairs of socks
2 tea cozies
12 pairs of mittens
and 1 elephant!
This is one of my very favourite times of year. For me, new year always feels full of hope, possibility and new opportunity - a whole year stretching ahead to fill with new experiences. Naturally, the new year can bring many unexpected things - some great things, some very far from great and some very sad and upsetting things but right now it's a whole fresh brand new year and that feels so good.
I wonder what 2011 will be dominated by? Right now, there's a chance it might involve rather a lot of this sort of thing....
I blame it on Mr Moog - for letting me make him buy me a lovely new embroidery book for Christmas!
He'll never learn ;o)
p.s. I hadn't really planned on being absent for so many weeks but after managing to fall downstairs on my backside a month ago I've been nursing a battered and bruised coccyx - definitely not conducive to sitting reading blogs of an evening....and sadly not conducive to sitting knitting either! Don't worry - I've made up for it by lying on the sofa reading books instead :o)
