A year in Finished Objects.

I spent some time this morning looking back at my FOs from the past year, and thinking about what I want to do now that the calendar has revolved back around. Last February, Jason and I made a trip to Florida and New Orleans, and I began my first “real” pair of socks on the way down. I bough two skeins of sock yarn at The Quarter Stitch in NOLAs French Quarter, and now I’ve knit nine pairs without realizing it. Add to that the two half socks waiting on mates and the pair I knit and ripped out because I hated them, and that works out to 11 pairs, which is just crazy.

The fingerless mittens pictured here are, by the way, my favorite thing that I’ve knit, ever. That %$#&% dog sweater is my least favorite, and I’m still a little horrified that I gifted it anyway.

I’m determined that this time next year, I’ll be able to post a full grid of twenty projects.

1. Thumbless Dashing, 2. FO:Monkey, 3. FO: BFF Socks, 4. FO: Sunset Socks, 5. Christine’s Sox, 6. Simon, 7. Cathay Top–Preblocking, 8. FO: Bruce Wayne Socks, 9. FO: Vog On, 10. FO: Broadripple, 11. FO: Popsicle Socks, 12. FO: Birthday Bag, 13. One down., 14. 365/2 (Turn a Square), 15. Liz’s Earwarmer, 16. Basic Neckwarmer, 17. Jason’s Cozy Feet Socks, 18. Mom’s Garden Socks., 19. Milo’s Sweater
