Tomorrow I will share with you the top 10 lessons I learned from this experience. For now I will share just a few notes.

I had originally hoped to make 4 each for Tommy, Emma and myself (remember, my hubs is a walking furnace, so he gets hats instead). However, I ended up making 4 for Emma, 5 for Tommy (he was only able to wear the Matelot sweater 2x since he grew so fast) and 3 for myself. Plus, I did knit one gift sweater for my friend's new baby, but that does not count toward the 12 in 2012 since it didn't meet the criteria. The sweaters were all made within the 2012 calendar year. The last one was completed on December 23, so I was cutting it kind of close.

Of the 12 sweaters made this year, 2 were made with newly purchased yarn, 1 was made with yarn from a gift certificate and the remaining 9 were all stash-busters. Pretty good, I'd say!

And now it is time to have some wine and chocolate and celebrate...

Or... I could go yarn shopping...
