It’s been a year now since I started (re-started) knitting. And a year now that I started blogging about it. It was a good year, and I’m happy that I’m still keeping up on this hobby. I’ve tended in the past to pick up a hobby and keep it for a month or two (soap making, candle making, fabric dying etc) but I think knitting is here to stay. It’s relaxing, portable (unlike my quilting, which I still wouldn’t mind doing but I don’t have the room anymore in my apartment) and creates beautiful things.
Now, I’ve also learned though that knitting can have alot of ‘whoops, awe hecks and dang its” Such as with my Mountain Peaks Shawl I recently mostly finished. I had doubled the cobweb yarn and had estimated a extra 150 yards above what the pattern called for. But alas it wasn’t enough. I was going to be 10 grams short of what I needed. So here is Miss Mountain Peaks with out some of her peaks. It’s still pretty, but not quite what I wanted. I just don’t know if I can bring myself to knit another one. (give me a few months) I am very tired of p2togtbl (purl 2 together through back loop)….
So cheers to the Peakless Mountain Peak Shawl.
Here’s to 12×12 more years.
