2008 Knitting

Well, it’s time for the year-end summary, but first I have a couple new projects to blog about.

For the holiday gifts I gave these to my mom, these to my middle sister, and the socks from the previous entry to my little sister, as I mentioned. However, we had two other guests that got knitted gifts this year…

The honorary 4th daughter in our family got these “Zom-bees”


Yarn: Yarn Pirate in Killer Bees
Pattern: plain ol’ socks
Started: 12/18/08
Finished: 12/24/08

And I whipped out a quick hat for another more spur of the moment guest:


Yarn: Wool Ease Thick & Quick
Pattern: an improvised hat
Started: 12/24/08
Finished: 12/25/08, in the wee hours

That provided a much-needed non-sock item for my end of the year count, which is as follows:

28 pairs of socks
2 hats
1 monkey
1 TP teepee

It was actually kind of a pitiful knitting year. :( Maybe I’ll do better next year… I have a feeling it will depend on my ratio of knitter to non-knitter friends in Seattle.
