How do you measure a year?
In daylights, in sunsets, in midnights
In cups of coffee
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife.?
In sweaters? I knit 18 sweaters this year (four of the miniature variety)!
In pairs of socks? I knit 9 pairs in 2011!
In yards of yarn? Sweaters+Socks+Gloves+Hat= ~23,094 YARDS! That's a LOT of yarn!
In sewing? 9 Projects Complete in 2011.
I didn't achieve my 3-tier monthly goal (1sweater, 1pair of socks, and 1 sewing project each month), but overall, I'm proud of all the things I DID get done! There's obviously room for expansion and improvement in 2012, which I see as a welcome challenge! It's pretty amazing to compile and look at all the things I created in 365 days, and to see the progress I'm making as a DIYer. I'm already planning projects for 2012; I can't wait to see you all on the other side!!
And, however you measure your year, I hope that it's filled with love.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!

That is an amazing amount of knitting and sewing to have accomplished in one year! I feel like a slouch next to you! :-)

Wow! Amazing results!!! I like your three-tiered approach and I love the photo re-cap - I may have to borrow that for re-capping 2012. I like how you measure your year!
