When I was thinking back on how my year in knitting went, I remembered it a bit differently than it actually went. Somehow this past year has seemed to pass at lightning speed, and yet last January seems so far away. Generally I’m a bit of an overly productive person, meaning I feel like I need to be productive at all times, and I mean all times. Even when we’re watching a movie I like to have a project to work on. Well one of the perils of this mindset is even when you’ve knit 2.5 sweaters (one that you designed from scratch and had to knit twice), 2 pairs of socks, 4 hats, and a pair of gloves that actually took 4 gloves to perfect you still look back and think, hmmm…is that all I knit?
A few of these projects I haven’t photographed, like the hats & gloves, but here’s a look back at my projects from this year that made it to the blog.
Next year knit plans include working on my fair isle game, finally knitting the Ondawa I’ve been too cabled out to knit since I finished my Stonecutter, some kind of scarf or cowl, and lots more socks! I’m sure more things will weave in and out of the queue, but that’s what I’m thinking at the moment.
If you’re a knitter, how was your year of knitting? Have anything planned for next year already?
