*finish up some longstanding UFO's
*knit garments that were practical and wearable
*take control of my unmanageable WIP list
Overall, I am very happy with how the above objectives were met. I only have a couple of UFO's in my basket and my WIP list is not quite as out of control as it was at the beginning of the year. Learning to pause before impulsively casting on for a project as well as seeing a project through to the very end were probably the hardest but most rewarding lessons learned this year.
I learned that in terms of wearability, I tend to favor cardigans over pullovers. Blue and teal green were the sweater colors of 2011.
Small knits once again ruled the knitting bag.
I discovered the wonderful world of knitted toys this past year. The two monsters and the Quintuplets were my proudest creations of 2011.
Here's to another year of exciting possibilities!
