Goodbye 2010, hello 2011!

2010 was, in several ways, a fairly tumultuous year for me. In some ways both the highs, and the lows, were more extreme than in previous years, yet, now that the year has changed, I feel like very little actually happened. I started and finished 7 shawls, 2 hats and a few other bits and bobs (including a few works in progress that had been left languishing in their unfinished states since before 2010).

The weather turned chilly early this year, and I had to make myself a beret that could accomodate my mop of hair under it. I'm really quite pleased with it, despite the gauge relaxing a touch more than I had foreseen.

My last completed shawl of the year was a fairly simple, but very cozy triangular shawl. It's yummy and schnuggly and worth the seemingly endless final rows.

I didn't complete the 10 shawls in 2010 challenge, and my first finished object of the year is actually a shawl I planned on finishing last year. I received the pattern as a random act of kindness and the navy yarn was a gift from my Beloved, so it was a real group effort.

And to end this strange post, I'd like to wish you all a peaceful, joyful and contented 2011. May it be a better year than the last one :)
