Let Me Sum Up

In 2010, I knit 14 miles of yarn. And despite making numerous yarn purchases, still managed to reduce my stash by 57 skeins of yarn.

I made 18 tops, 16 shawls/scarves/cowls, 4 hats, one pair of mittens, 1 pair of leg warmers, a set of tea towels, a few bunny nuggets, a teeny-tiny-kitty, and assorted Barbie doll attire. Here’s a sampling:

I do not make resolutions for the new year. Nor do I call them “intentions”, as that seems to always remind me of what the road to hell is paved with.

I do, however, plan to continue reducing my stash, both yarn-wise and household-wise. I expect to end 2011 with even less yarn, and less STUFF in the house overall. Hopefully that will not come about by having the house burn down, as nearly happened in the summer.

Overall, 2010 was a pretty good year for us, and I’m hoping for an even better 2011.

Thank you all for being here!
