2013 Year in Review

It's definitely not been a knitting year for me, that's certain, but I usually do this year in review for my knitting blog, and I'm not going to stop now! With three shoulder surgeries, and the subsequent recoveries, I was a wounded dove for much of the year, but at least the third surgery allowed me knitting ability! YAY! So as a result, I managed to make quite a few items for Christmas gifts. As usual, there are still a couple that haven't yet been received (family Christmas is this coming weekend), so photos of those will have to wait!

But there were four items made that I can share now: The Peacock Ruffle Scarf, made for My Sweetheart's son's bride:

The Turn A Square hat, made for My Sweetheart:

The Noro Two-Stripe Scarf, made for My Sweetheart (he loves the set!)

And finally, the gray Everyday Mitts, made for my DD:

All of these went pretty quickly - okay the scarf took months - I think the secret to holiday knitting, and maybe gift knitting in general, is to pick something relatively easy, and preferably one-skein, only!

The rest of the year, I did manage to finish off a few items - two pairs of socks for my sweetie, my sister-in-law's Landscape Shawl, and a few other items. But it was slow going in the knitting world for Knitnana. Still, with a bionic shoulder, I anticipate great things in the New Year! LOLOL!

I'm Still Here...and I'm Knitting!

I'm especially happy to say that last bit...I'm knitting!! In the two weeks since the surgery, I've finished two Christmas presents, and (drumroll, please?) THESE:

Yes! That's the completed pair of brown tweed socks! I finished the third one the end of last week. (You do remember why I knit 3, don't you?)

My Sweetie was so pleased to have them, he put them right on and wore them!

And that made all the frustration over losing that first sock worthwhile.

Well...almost. *wink*


I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
