Year in Review: 2016
It's that time again!
As I have done sometime in December for quite a few years: Year In Review. I do it in words (the first sentence of the first post of each month) and in pictures (a favorite posted photo from each month) -- the two are not necessarily related.
In addition to (or, as a set-up for) BEGIN AS YOU MEAN TO GO ON, I spent some time cleaning things up at the end of the year.
I walked to the library on Saturday morning to pick up the latest addition to my Reading list: Mink River.
Way back before Christmas, it was decided that while Rusty was traipsing around the west coast, we'd have a girls' weekend in Chicago.
I lunched & shopped & hung out with my sister on Saturday.
Knitting: Too many things.
Anticipating... our first Farmers Market of the season tomorrow morning!
Ten on Tuesday: 10 Things On My Summer Bucket List
And now, a little shameless promotion.
I knit this adorable hat using leftovers from Gin's Elwood, and I couldn't be happier (except that I wish I'd knit it one size larger) (listen to the voices in your head!).
It's November, which means it's time for NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) -- little sister to NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).
This is why.
I can't quite believe 2016 is almost over!
Another wonderful recap, I always enjoy this walk down your memory lane.

wow - what a year! Love seeing all the places you went - and great job with those group selfies! I love how well December's words go with the photo :-)

What a treat! There are times that I wonder why I blog, but you've given the best reason here - for the memories.

I was thinking of your gift quilt just a few days ago. What an amazing accomplishment. It is always wonderful to see the familiar faces of your whole family! May the next year be full of joy, joy, joy!!!

Looks like a full year was enjoyed. I can't believe I missed that Wedding Ring quilt!

All those months, of knitting, of family, the little kids . . . how lucky you are. (The last one does say it all!)
Merry Christmas. 🌲
