Finishing......out the old Year
Tomorrow brings a Warm Hat Wednesday New Years Eve post with lotsa pictures. Today will be my out with the old post.
Knittingnonni.blogspot.com's Mariella inspired me to make a NinePatch Nonni Blanket. I knitted up 2 panels on my Minnesota train trip and then put it away. Today I decided to make the two panels into pillows for the sofa. Voila! Washable. Perfect for napping, or knitting with back support!
I have to give the funniest comments to my blog awards this year to Deb from WoundTooTight. blogspot.com for her hysterical response to Firemans Top Tips post.
While reviewing the blog for the year I also noticed the post with the most comments for me, *66*, was the Contest post where I asked you to leave a comment for someone who doesn't get many comments. That was fun.
My biggest flop was the Taos vest. UGH. I am embarassed I even showed it to you. The rest of that yarn is going to be a nice simple hat.
It seems to me comments dropped since Fall. Some of my loyal followers had some hardships and stopped blogging. Blogbletherings I miss you.
I used Ravelry nearly daily this year. Maybe in the Year of the OX, I will learn to do a flicker account so I can download my meager FO's.
Meeting Major Knitter Jennifer from Conn. in the Windy City was a very fun summer knit highlight.
I won some very fun knitthings this year in contests, and I thank all the hosts of the contests that I didnt win too. I love to enter.
Warm Hats Charity Knits has been a delightful experience. Goodness really abounds.
Huck played prominently in the blog as always. He is a comment getter too!
I could not believe how far my Interview with Fireman back in June? went in our blogasphere. Irisheyeslynn tried to trace it back to my original for a good while, and she couldn't. It was a delightful surprise to see it spread like wildfire in cyberspace. Hey, has anyones significat leave them a comment yet???
Irisheyes Lynn's husband Rob featured early in the year and it perhaps was the funniest post of the year.
THe really regulars to Irisheyes will soon be on a sidebar of my Knitblogs I follow. Im learning how to add you all to my Irisheyespage. Karen M, Grace, Lynne, Darcy, Elaine! (blogless) Katherine, Major Jennifer, Donna Boucher, Ling, Bianca, evergreen knits, Deb, Emily Yarn Miracle, Beverly and Kimberly.......and anyone else I forgot and am SOOOOO sorry I forgot, Thanks for comments and the great joy you give me on your blogs as well!
Happy Happy New Year.
