Happy New Year

I didn't make my goal of 50 projects for the year, but I did squeak in a last project for the year with fleece pajamas for Andy,

and a last pair of socks, which are almost twins!
Considering how many knots were in this skein of yarn, I'm calling it a Christmas miracle.  Of course, I immediately cast on for a new pair:

because there might be some sock yarn that found its way into my stash this year.  Actually, a LOT of yarn might have joined me this year.  While under normal circumstances, I would feel bad about it, anything short of alcoholism to cope with the stress of 2020 seems like a "win."  

I'm working tons and tons of hours at my new job, but I think I'm still going to try for 50 finished projects this year.  It's my turn to make gifts, so there will be some smaller projects--maybe fabric bowls?  More table runners?  How many table runners do people who don't sew use?  It's a lot, right?

Let's hope 2021 is a MUCH better year than 2020.
