I’ve been reading several of my favorite knitting blogs today, and many of them created a summary of what they knitted in 2010. This inspired me to want to do the same. I began to list everything, and I was kind of surprised by all the things that I knitted in 2010. Luckily, I’d kept track of most of my projects on Ravelry.
David put pictures of all my finished things into a collage. It would have taken me 10 years, and it wouldn’t have looked nearly as nice, so thank you David.
There are five hats that I didn’t photograph, and I just finished a scarf and hat for my sister-in-law. I forgot to get a picture of that as well. Other than that though, I think this collage pretty much covers it.
In 2010, I knitted total of 13 hats, 11 pairs of socks, 6 scarves, 1 pair of gloves, 2 pairs of fingerless mitts, 3 sweaters, 1 pair of baby pants, 5 stuffed animals, and one mini-me. Holy mackerel. That seems like a lot.
And it was really a year of learning too. I learned to make bobbles, lateral braids, and I did my first herringbone rib. I did lots of colorwork. I learned magic loop and knitting on two circular needles. It’s been quite a year.
2011 Knitting Resolutions?
1. Seriously – get rid of the stash. I don’t have a huge stash of yarn, but I really want to knit down what I have.
2. Finish knitting the patterns in the The Joy of Sox book.
4. Successfully finish THE SWEATER.
Who knows what else will inspire me in 2011? Maybe I can convert and inspire some new knitters!
Happy New Year of Knitting!
