OK, I didn’t knit a pair of socks every month in 2010. When I look deep within myself I know that it’s alright, I’m not a sock-a-month person. Unlike Elizabeth, I have lots and lots of socks; my daughter has lots and lots of socks. I’ve knit a lot of socks in my life. I like to knit socks; I always have a pair of socks on my knitting needles, just one pair at a time but always a pair of socks in the project bag. I got all the way through June before the project began to wear thin, we traveled to England and I didn’t finish a pair for July. That was the beginning of the end of this project for me.
Just so’s you know, I’m OK with not finishing the year. I did spend my first year in our newly renovated house, hanging pictures, figuring out what went in each kitchen drawer, finding a spot to display my mug collection, the list is endless. I posted a photo a day on my art web site. I traveled to England. I lost 22 ½ pounds. I took care of my family. It was a great year and 2011 is going to be even better, the mind boggles.
I did lots of charity knitting this year. I’m a very fortunate person and I believe in giving back; I hope to give back even more in 2011. I’d also like to lose another 20 pounds, exercise a bit more, knit more, travel more and grow less facial hair. I expect to reach most of those goals and the ones I miss; well it just goes to show you that I’m not perfect.
