On 2010 and Looking Back

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.
