I fell apart on my blog posting in the second half of 2020. There was a lot going on. The building of the studio was going on which kept me busy with decisions to be made. I had also made it half way through my 24 sweater challenge and could see that it would be possible to complete it. In January I had on a lark decided to make two sweaters each month. One from my very deep stash of handspun and one from commercial yarn that would tentatively be destined for publication. I finished the 24th sweater on the 30th of December.
Meaghan has been patiently waiting for an opportunity to take a photo of all the sweaters and went out and took photos yesterday morning. She posted the photo below on instagram and Sarah posted it on redit where it apparently garnered some notice.
It’s a great photo. However most of the sweaters are original design yoke sweaters so an awful lot of the work and creativity is lost in this photo. My plan today or some time this week is to photograph them in a circle so one gets a better idea of what was actually knit.
2020 turned out to be a pretty productive year for me. The studio which until this summer had only been an idea actually came into existence. I completed my 24 sweater challenge. This certainly doesn’t take away from sadness and horror of 2020. I am looking forward to 2021 and actually seeing people again. I’m also hoping to get back to posting more regularly on the blog.
