Out with the old...
I've seen a few of these end of year round up thingies so I jumped on the bandwagon and decided to do my own.
I think 2006 can only be summed up as 'the year of the baby' in my world, with the safe arrival of Sol, Scarlett, James, Niahm, Alexandra and John. Baby knitting was plentiful here at Casa Rain and you all patiently put up with my rambling on about all things tiny.

I have to admit to really enjoying making little things and to feeling just the eensiest, weensiest bit broody. It's the shoes, teeny tiny shoes get me every time.

Once friends and family had ceased breeding, it was time to move onto bigger and better things. I managed to turn out a few sweaters for myself and about a billion pairs of Mrs Beetons (ok, 4, but it felt like it). There was a whole host of other bits and pieces that were sent out as gifts that I completely forgot to take photos of, something to remember for next year.

I really feel like my knitting has come on in leaps and bounds this year, I learnt a whole heap of new techniques and consolidated a lot of the old ones. I've ironed out a lot of bad habits too. My favourite knit of the year has to be Scarlett's flying suit, I loved seeing her in it.
I'm only carrying over
Jedi coat (still needs a lining sewing in)
Green cabled cardi (half the sleeves and the button bands to go)
Lily Chin Reversible Rib Shawl (it just goes on and on...)
Scarlett's garter stitch hat (awaiting the top part)
Fetching (awaiting thumbs)
Serrano (please don't make me finish it)
Braided cable cardigan (awaiting sleeves)
The sample for my Sensual Knits submission (how I wish I could show you)
All in all it's been a very productive year. Hang onto your hats for the next one...
