Whew! And yet, somehow, it doesn't seem like I finished that many things! I did rip a fair number of things this year too, so it all balances out.

Some questions (and answers!)

What is your absolute favorite project you've ever knit (one that fulfilled both process and product)? - Leaf Lace Shawl. Loved it, though it did get tedious there at the end!

Which of your handknits do you wear the most often?
- Hands down, my socks. I wear a pair almost every day from November until February/March. I wish it was cold enough to wear my hats/scarves/sweaters more often.

What was your favorite gift to knit? - Hmmmmm, I guess the Baltic Sea Stole for my sister's wedding. It was more than a little repetitive by the end, but I was knitting it for a special occasion, and that made it more special.

Which of your handknits are gathering dust your closet? - My long skinny scarves from last year, and my sweaters, because it just isn't that cold enough often for them.

Which of your handknits have you gotten rid of?
- My first hat - it wasn't very warm. It went to charity.

If you've knit socks, what is your favorite pattern? - The P-word socks from Knitty. Looking forward to making a pair for myself in 2007.

What would you like to make in 2007? - Many things. Come back tomorrow for a better look at those!

*I should have all of the KAL participants listed in the sidebar. If you don't see yourself, please let me know!

    Thanks for including me in the sidebar for the Not a Gift KAL. I'll be finishing my Lacy Serpentine Stole first thing.
