When I look back on this year of creating, I’m pleased with how much I accomplished, particularly that my finished projects look more polished than they have in years past. Also, I’ve learned a lot of new skills..like crocheting! I want to keep improving and adding to my skill set in the years to come.

Compared to some years, this doesn’t represent a whole lot of knitting, but I’ve been cautious about over-doing it, since knitting has contributed to a problem I have with pinched nerves in my brachial plexus. A new physical therapy regimen has me hoping that I’ll be able to spend more time with yarn in 2011! I currently have a monstrous sweater on the needles for my husband and hope to replenish my own sweater wardrobe.

Dang. It’s a wonder my sewing machine isn’t worn out. I’ve been busy! What’s not shown here, however, are all of the muslins I worked on and NEVER managed to make into a finished garment. These include:

1. Chanel Jacket using Vogue 7975
2. Blouse with butterfly sleeves – Butterick 4985
3. Jalie 2788 Twist Top
4. BWOF 03-2009-106- Draw-String Neck Blouse
5. BurdaStyle Mag 05-2009-111

I think the first order of business will be to actually sew those things!

Best wishes for an EXCELLENT new year!
