happy first!

Today is my first knitversary. One year ago today I bought my first pair of needles and some acrylic wool at the Lewiscraft (closed forever yesterday). One year ago I opened Stitch n' Bitch and started givin'r. My mom taught me to knit when I was younger, but I'd never finished anything. I'd always knit too tightly, split stitches, dropped stitches, and given up easily. This time, it was like my needles were enchanted, and I began to see what one could do as a semicompetant knittrix. I think Debbie would be proud.

Year in Review Stats:


By the numbers


Finished objects:


Sources:


* total is higher than FO's because I combined some patterns into one object and some projects into one gift

Distribution:


Whew.

As for my weekly goals, I've finished the trunk of Enzo's green sweater, and am about halfway up one sleeve. I remain completely stymied on my Sockapaloooza project, as I can't find 2.5 mm needles to save my life. I've been to three stores and disappointed on all counts. I'm starting to see my life as a comical montage, with LYS after LYS slamming doors in my face. "You can't do it / so give up now / whatcha gonna knit when the yarn runs out? Ain't that a draaag!"
