It took all day to knit 10 rows but...
The shawl is now blocking.You can't see it, but I added beads (the pattern didn't call for them). The reason for this is two-fold. I like beads... and I like the weight they add to a shawl. A proper FO post will follow in the new year with all the details.
All in all I knit 54 projects this year. (Tomorrow in my Surmount the Stash post, I'll tally up the yearly yardage.)
I had a few goals this year.
1) Knit at least four (adult) sweaters: I actually made five! And as you know - one of them was a man sweater!!
2) Knit one pair of socks for everyone in my family, plus a few for me (10 pairs total): Done! There were actually 11 pairs knit. One for each member of the family, some for extended family, and a couple for me.
3) Finish one afghan: Nope... no afghans finished. In fact I barely worked on any at all. I have a couple scrap sock yarn afghans on the go, but really made no progress.
4) Knit a lace weight shawl: Well... I didn't do that, but I did make some lovely fingering weight ones. Actually, this year was a little light on the shawl side, with only six shawls made this year. I actually just caked up some lace weight - so maybe I can try to conquer that goal this year.
So - although I only met two of my goals, I'm counting this year as a pretty darn good one knitwise! Tune in next year for some 2013 knit goals!
