Note: Posterous is apparently being a jerk and claims that my blog archive has one (1!) post. Should anyone feel any interest in reading older entries, I’ve tagged everything by month (see the tag cloud).
I again wanted to do an end-of-the-year review and so spent a while today frantically adding all my December projects to Ravelry, so I could count them all.
So, in 2012 I knit:
54 items, of which
26 were hats
10 were socks
6 were scarves/shawls
4 were cowls
5 were mittens/gloves/armwarmers
3 were sweaters (one of which was baby-sized)
To compare these numbers to the stats from 2011, this year I knit considerably more. I managed to make more socks and less hats like I hoped (although 26 still sounds pretty insane).
Looking back at my projects now, there are many that I love dearly. The Essayist Sweater proved to be a great success. It’s warm and soft and I’ve used it as an alternative for a coat in the fall. The Reverie Cowl has been one of my most-used accessories in the warmer months, and I remember knitting it while watching a so-bad-it’s-funny movie with friends. I’m also very happy to have finally knit gloves and mittens successfully.
2012 was, in general, a great year for me and I can only hope that 2013 will be as good. I will in any case start it in the best possible way -with the bf, some knitting, some sparkling wine and vegan potato salad. It doesn’t get any better than that.
