2009: The Craftermath

Hi there, It's very quiet in the office today as we wind down for Christmas vacation. Looking back, it's been a very crafty year, so I thought I'd post some crafty highlights below. I will be back in this space on January 4th with the results of Giveaway #34; in the meantime, I wish you all the best for a very happy holiday! jan1 January got off to a slow start as I took a break from Christmas crafting...but contemplated making a turtle quilt. (It's a neat one – a variation on the Drunkard's Path block.) feb-2 In February I got down to work, making a baby quilt for a friend. I love these little tiny fabric scraps. march-1 March arrived, and with it a Snap Coin Purse Class at the workroom. april-1 In April I cast on a pair of Viper Pilots socks. Sadly, I finished the DVDs before I finished knitting. Maybe I'll get back to them now that my Christmas knitting is finished! may-1 May brought sunshine, sandal weather and the first of many Denyse Schmidt Single Girl quilt blocks. june-1 Thinking ahead in June, I cast on for a baby sweater for my friend's baby to wear in the fall. I need to work on not getting ladders when stitching in the round. july-1 What's July without a new shirt to wear as a beach cover-up? I had fun experimenting with pattern modifications...although with all the rainy weather we had, I didn't get to the beach. august-1 August brought crafting of a different sort as I worked on bringing my current obsession – terrariums – to life. sept-2 September brought log cabin love. I was ready to snuggle into fall early this year! oct-1 In October the weather cooled down significantly and out came the knitting. Above, my February Lady sweater, and what will eventually be a matching pair of socks... nov-2 In November I covered my work table in kraft paper and got to work on something entirely different. Keep an eye out for the March issue for the full reveal! dec-3 December rolled around and with it, a million reasons to add glitter. Christmas knitting kicked into high gear, but when I wasn't knitting I was cutting, pasting, gluing and glittering. Hooray for the sparkle season! I can't wait to see what 2010 brings. Enjoy your holidays and I'll see you here in the New Year! (ps. Want to play along? I'd love to see what you were up to in 2009. Just leave a link in the comments!)
