Hitting 100!

I just logged my 100th project on Ravelry. I feel such a sense of accomplishment at this fact. It has been right about 10 years since I started knitting and it has been such a great time! I owe my sister Katy such a debt for teaching me this fabulous craft.

2009 - Piles of hand-knit socks. The pile is now triple this size!

While the number says 100, I almost feel that the number of completed items is closer to 200! Between the 50-odd sweater ornaments over the years, and the fact that socks are a pair, I could probably get by with a good 200. However, project-wise, 100 is pretty impressive. Other than the cat hats, AK hats, fingerless gloves, and ornaments, I try not to repeat patterns more than once or twice. This is a testament to how many wonderful patterns there are out there.

Thanks to all that create new projects! I have tried small things in the past, and am amazed by the creativity that continues to come out. Here's to another 100 projects! Let's just hope it doesn't take me 10 years to finish them!
