I did not knit as much this past year as I have in previous years (partly because I spent so much time watering the garden), but I was no slouch, either. I tried some new things, like dyeing yarn using KoolAid. I retried some things, like toe-up socks. My Ravelry project list shows a ton of WIPs, which I am hoping (as always) to finish. Most of them just need a button or some seaming or blocking - I don't like to count something as finished until it is usable - so maybe, just maybe, some of them will get finished in 2013.
Speaking of finishing, I was in a LYS recently, purchasing buttons for a long neglected sweater. When I mentioned that the garment had been languishing, she informed me that she offers a finishing service. The idea of hiring someone to finish my handknits just feels... wrong. And yet I would love to have someone take a quilt top I pieced together completely by hand and turn it into an honest-to-god quilt. What is your opinion?
