2006: A Year of Firsts

2006 was a pretty good year for knitting and one where I covered a lot of new territory.

I started and/or finished several lace projects.
I completed my first two sweaters.
I knit my first afghan.
I attended three hardcore knitter's festivals, going as far as Rhinebeck, on a whim.
I successfully competed in the Knitter's Olympics.
I entered and won prizes for my knitting at the local fair.

All for these for first time. I wonder what 2007 holds!

An amazing list of accomplishments. Don't forget to mention that you went to Rhinebeck and didn't buy anything!!

I see your one thing and I raise you, like 20 or 30 things! You should make a resolution in 2007 to purchase at least 10 things at Rhinebeck!
