I had been thinking about a post about perseverance when I read a beautiful post by Knitting Linguist that said everything I wanted to say about knitting and linked it to politics in a way I never could have. Thank you, Jocelyn, for your words.

So this post will just be my annual, albeit overdue, tally of last year's knits.

7 Hats
5 Pairs fingerless mitts
5 Cowls
4 Gifts hard to categorize
2 Baby sweaters
2 Adult sweaters (for me!)
2 Toys
1 Pair socks
1 Pair legwarmers
1 Pair slippers
2 Frogged

30 Total projects

It's a bit light, but that's probably because I knit two adult-sized sweaters, which I haven't done in a while. I've got yarn and a pattern in the queue for another sweater. I am also planning on knitting a Find Your Fade, which will probably take me a long time to knit, since I'm not a shawl knitter and it's a big project. I've already knit 6 projects this year, and I'm sure I'll finish another two hats before the month is over. I've had some requests, which hasn't happened in a while. The two hats are for a friend who didn't find a hat she liked in my periodic giveaway, and my four-year-old friend asked me just last night to knit him a Slo Mo. He had watched me knitting one back in September and remembered that it was for someone else, so he wants one of his own. I can't deny a four-year-old who wants knitted things, now can I?

Another goal is to refine my writing style by using this blog as practice. Let's see if I can reach that goal!
