goodbye 2006

it's the last hour of 2006 and i'd hoped to post photos of the things i've been knitting lately (but i don't have any). my brother is going to send me pictures of his feet in the socks i made him for christmas and also a picture of my mom in her new Odessa hat. maybe i'll put up some pictures next year. ha. i don't know why i think that's so funny. i'm pretty sure no one else thinks that's funny. hrm.

for now, i'm thinking up some new year's (knitting) resolutions...

1. finish UFOs. i have a million. some of them just need the ends woven in. what's up with that?
2. give steeking a try...ah!
3. knit (and finish) more things for myself.

i'm trying to be realistic with my list. i would commit to going on a yarn diet or giving project monogamy a try but i know it won't last long enough to see results. seriously. not buy yarn? ha! not start a new project every week? pshaw.

we'll save that for '08

happy new year!

it's my one year blogiversary (well actually, it was on the 12th but i was knee deep in finals and completely out of it). let's see, i've been doing this for a year now, and my mom JUST figured out how to leave a comment. that's cool. i feel less bad about having so few comments now that i know she wasn't choosing to NOT leave one.

so what did i do in that year? knit. duh. here's the break down...(knitting FOs only...otherwise the list would be infinite)

ipod mini case
three lacy ribbon scarves
one blue ribbon scarf
ipod nano case
heart scarf
bella's ribbed flower hat
counterpane accessory pouch
heart lace bookmark
green socks
shibori scarf
black socks
blackberry beanie (2 of them)

Seed stitch beanie for Jack's Mannequin
cabled newsboy hat for my SIL
camera cozy for Nikki
two dog sweaters for Lola
