At the end of the year, I always enjoy thinking back about what I have finished this year. With life as busy at it was, I didn’t get that much done, and as irregularly as I have been updating, it seems like all I have done was tell you a listing of things I have finished… So, I won’t bore you with yet listing everything again. I have gone through, and found a few more projects that I don’t think I actually told you about, so I will show you:
This is a little barefoot sandal, with the most adorable rose on it. I made it out of 10/2 cotton. I actually tested the pattern, which was quite neat to do. Ravelry does not wish to cooperate that the moment, and I can’t actually find you a link. I actually don’t know if it has been added to Ravelry yet… The name of the pattern is Baby Rose, designed by Stephanie Haberman.
And a friend found me this neat pattern for a mug rug. Being the tinkerer that I am, I of course could not leave it alone, and decided to see if I could make a dishcloth out of it. The pattern is very easy, and it creates a gorgeous square. So, I got some Christmas kitchen cotton, and this is the result:
I like the pattern, and have been intrigued by the color play. I just used 1 strand of Worsted Weight cotton, US 7 needles, and used only 1 strand. Otherwise, I used the original pattern. Next time I would cast on a few more stitches, I think this ended up being about 4 or 4 and a half inches approximately square. But making it bigger is literally that easy, you just cast on more stitches!
And that concludes the review of this year. Some of you might be asking, but are you not going to share your resolutions for the new year? It may be a surprise, but No. I don’t make resolutions at the end of the year. I don’t see why that is the perfect time to do it, and I don’t intend to do it just because others are doing it. Sure, there are a few things I would like to see happen next year. I would like to publish more then 5 or so blog posts! I would like to get a little more time for Knitting, Crochet, Spinning, Bobbinlace, Cross stitch, and way too many other hobbies. But whether that will happen? We’ll see. And I am perfectly happy with that!
