Yes, I am just now — on January 5th — getting around to wrapping up 2011. But since I’ve been in catch-up mode for the past few months, it feels apropos.
I finished the knitting for this in early November, but didn’t get around to blocking and photographing it until the end of December. The biggest hindrance was the gallbladder surgery I had in late November. (I also blame that for the decision to undertake the frenzy of Christmas knitting. That form they give you that says not to make any legal decisions after anesthesia should include a “no new knitting projects” clause.)
Now that all the 2011 FOs are blogged, how did I do on my knitting goals? Well, I did some colorwork but I never cast on those Fiddlehead Mittens. With that in mind, I’m going to keep my 2012 knitting goals more general and say that I want to try three new techniques/items.
