|I LOVE THESE KIDS!!!|

|This little hooded sweater was the first test knit I have ever done for a designer. It is an 18 months size, so it will be put away for future use.|
|These two hats were knit for a lady, who has a son at STA, who has lost her hair from chemotherapy.|
|A hat for Gryffin for Christmas.|
|A cowl for Adrienne for Christmas. I forgot to get a picture of it finished, so I'll try to get a pic of it when I give it to her.|
|Mittens for Ashtyn for Christmas. Again, I forgot to take a pic before I wrapped them, so I'll try to get one when I give them to her.|
I do have several things on the needles, and plans for more. Maybe another post for another day.

|This shawl took almost a year to knit. I got stuck while knitting it, and couldn't figure it out, so I put it away and went on to something else. Then one day I came across the "pattern errata", and it all made sense. I finished it in about 2 days.|
|Another big accomplishment this year is that I made a couple of well-fitting, presentable-to-wear-in-public sweaters. I wear this all of the time.|
|In keeping with the year of the hats, I made Charlie a Koolhaas (a pattern I have been wanting to knit for awhile now), to wear when he runs. And since it was so fun, I made one for Clay too. See pic below.|
|And because Meg saw the other cowl that I knit, and she commented that she liked it so much, I made her one for Christmas, as well as the Yarntini socks below. Cause John said she is crazy for my knitted socks.|
|Although I did not knit this, I provided the yarn for it, and I think it deserves a photo on the blog. |
Amanda knit this for Morgan's baby.
|Another little hat for Morgan's baby. I would have knit a baby blanket for her baby shower,|
but Amanda wanted to, so I knit 4 little hats for her.
|This pair of socks was donated to the STA Lobster Bash, as well as the hat pictured below.|
|Another baby blanket, knit for Parker and Olivia's first baby.|
|Clay wanted some slipper socks. They are the same size - it is an optical illusion that the bottom one looks bigger.|
|Another pair of socks knit in a Numma Numma KAL. I love these socks.|
Additional information about all of my projects is available on my Project Page on Ravelry here.
|This year I also enjoyed knitting small shawls, or shawlettes. This one is knit in Bugga!|
|I knitted many little hats this year. The one above, and the two below were for Morgan's baby, as well as a little Christmas hat for Collin's baby.|
|I did not knit as many sock this year as I have in previous years, but there were a few. I was a member of Cookie A's sock club, and I think I knit 2 pairs from that club. I really like her patterns.|
|This was also a year for baby blankets. Oh, how I love to knit baby blankets. This is Stacey's baby with his Big Bad Baby Blanket.|
|Another Cookie A sock club pair - in a yarn I've never used before, but really like.|
