2008 Year in Review

I really came back to knitting in 2008. Even with the qualifying madness, I still knit a bit over 3 miles of yarn this year (around 3.07 miles, to be exact, or 5,405 yards). I made…

Two and a half pairs of socks
Two handbags
One baby blanket
Four dishcloths
3/4 a full cardigan
1/3 a short sleeve cardigan
One scarf (finished), one scarf (that will never end) still underway
One lace shawl
One lace shawl I gave up on
One baby mitten
One hat

And that doesn’t count things I’ve knit and frogged out and already forgotten about (like some oversized baby booties and a sweater that only Escher’s child could wear).

So what do I want to do in 2009?

Finish the wool cardigan
Finish the cotton cardigan
Finish the socks on the needles
Make another baby blanket
Make a bunch of baby stuff for the bunches of babies that are coming
Make myself some socks for a change


About Kristy Lamb

I recently finished my PhD in genetics at Yale and am currently a postdoc at Weill Cornell Medical College of Cornell University in NYC. I love science, people, and the fiber arts. We'll call it my muse. I taught myself to knit over Christmas break in 2002, when I was home from my sophomore year in college and was terribly bored. Despite starting with three big mistakes (very long aluminum needles, a very bad Coats & Clark how to knit book, and Lion Brand Homespun), I kept at knitting, even after that first 1/2 hour trying to tie a slipknot. Science...seems to be much the same process as the above.
