Out with the old and in with the new, 2010 is coming to the end and it has been a wild year for me. Without getting into too much detail, at the end of 2009 I had no idea that I would be here at the end of 2010.
In the past year, I got a Master’s degree and moved 1,800 miles. Now, back home on the shores of Georgian Bay, I am looking for work and playing with fiber.
My father is a numbers guy, he collates facts about his industry and published reports. In the spirit of my Dad, here is 2010 by the numbers.
- 23 miles of yarn acquired during the year
- 18 miles of yarn currently in my stash
- 4.5 miles of yarn knit into projects
- 426 yards of handspun yarn
- 2.6 kilograms of spinning fiber
- 3 Phat Fiber Boxes
- 7 pairs of mittens
- 14 hats
- 6 shawls or stoles
- 1 sweater (but it was for a baby)
All in all 2010 was a great year, I discovered spindling and the Phat Fiber crew, got a spinning wheel and made an amazing diversity of projects. I reintroduced my sister, CarlaBee, to knitting and she has made some amazing things as well.
All in all, 2010 has been great, and I look forward to 2011 being even more amazing.
