2nd Year Bloggiversary

Come tomorrow, I will have been blogging for 2 years. Not bad for something I started out as a 'lets just see if I can do this'.

I really enjoyed taking a look back over the last year of posts. Here are some random observations:

  • I completed approx 35 projects in the last 12 months. Whew! I'm thinking my speed must have improved this year. Either that, or other things have taken a back seat to the knitting.

  • 25 of these projects were gifts. Which made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Sharing the love... ;o)

  • Of the 10 knits I made for myself, 4 were sweaters. And I wear them all! (This is a first.)

  • My stash seems to have grown a ridiculous amount. Some as a result of the Colorado blanket. Others because I seem to lack self control in a yarn store. This coming year I am going to make a concerted effort to try and knit more from my stash.

  • I have good intentions - NanKniSweMo, Ravelympics and the like - but rarely seem to meet these self-imposed goals. I'll probably refrain from signing up for these events in the coming year, and instead knit at my own pace.

  • Most importantly, this year I made some really great knit friends - both locally and online. I appreciate you all for making this hobby even more enjoyable :) Thank you.

Congratulations on the blogiversary! That's quite an impressive bunch of FOs too. I'll be keeping an eye on what you stash in 'friends activity' though!

Happy Blogiversary! And wow, what a lot of knits. I've never really counted up mine. My one year anni was in June and my 100th post was just a few weeks ago!
Here's to many more years of blogging (and knitting!) :)
