2010 in pictures...

Almost all of my projects... There were some more, but these were the main ones... I see a colour pattern emerging... This year, I'm trying more colours! Promise :D
In total:
7 pairs of socks
4 hats
5 pairs of mittens/gloves
2 baby bibs
5 stuffed toys
2 Xmas ornaments
7 shawls/scarves
2 bags (1 sewn)
5 sweaters/tops
1 baby dress

One scarf I hadn't showed you properly: it's the one with the lovely girl in it. I had quite a lot of yarn left after knitting my Haruni, so I decided to knit our Mermaid a mini Annis:
It only needed 18 grams of yarn. Which means I have enough left to knit another one. (Just in case she looses this one. Ahum, ever the pessimist...) I had intended to use beads, but the holes of the beads I had were just too small, ending up ripping the yarn. So, I ended up knitting nupps after all...
And the shawl in all its glory... I used quite a large needle compared to the yarn, but that made it possible to make 7-loop nupps, which stand out nicely after blocking. A great little 'test run' for the Estonian shawls I'll be knitting this year! (Yes really!)

I just remembered I've totally excluded the hats for India (6)! I'm off to knit some more of those as we speak...

I'm looking forward to another great year for crafting. I can also let you know that me and the Hubby have a crafting business idea brewing; a little 'bun in the oven' so to speak. It's still in idea stage, but it's a great idea (if we can say so ourselves) and we hope that it will come to fruition and realization this year. A prime year, the best year to take an enormous leap of faith...
