Here is an account of my progress: I finished items 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 10 (Hurrah!) and I promise to finish at least 2 others. The rest, I'm afraid are destined to become yarn--and may possibly find new life in the 5-year blanket.
As I slowly picked away at my UFO's, I was also creating several new items. Below is a photo account of my "Year in Stitches":
KIS Designs offered 23 new patterns in 2014 (five of which were in that UFO pile). Not a bad year!
I didn't do it alone. I have amazing friends who keep me in stitches and I am so grateful to my super-hero test-knitters: Barb, Debbie, Becky, Rebecca, Darrel, Lisa, Louise, Margie, Michelle, Dennette, Beth, Theresa, Diane and Carmen for their expert knitting skills--as well as their editing eagle-eyes! Thank you all so much for your encouragement and willingness to lend your needles to the cause.
Thank you also to my wonderful models: Caleb, Anna, Savannah, Ian, Velvet, Sydney, Jocelyn, Tabitha, Carly, Sara and Erica. Thank you all for braving the rain, wind and blistering sun. You are beautiful!
I look forward to 2015 and have already gotten a jump-start on my projects. 3 new patterns are out for testing and 5 more are in the works. And of course, I look forward to making a bit of progress on the 5-year blanket--after all, I only have 4 years left to complete it!
Happy New Year everyone! May 2015 bring you happiness, good health and a whole lot of knitting!
