I usually review my finished projects for the year at the end of December. I was sitting here thinking that I didn't knit much at all this year compared to other years. I made some soap and I did some sewing. But after reviewing my blog archives, I realize that I did more than I thought. Not as much as previous years, but still more than I thought. FO's are as follows:
Koigu brown socks for me
Michael's neck gaitor in Kraemer washable wool
Fetching fingerless mitts for me
Emily's hand dyed socks (Shelley's sock yarn I think)
Misty Garden scarf for me out of Shelley's hand spun green wool
Opal socks for my mother
Blue hand dyed socks for Kelly
Dream Swatch headband for Kelly
4 cork people
Colin's blue socks
Kelly's Manos scarf and hat
Clementine Shawlette from Maryland Sheep and Wool hand dyed (for me)
Prayer scarf (requested by a sweet nun at a local nursing home)
Purple socks for Cate
Felted bag (that ended up in the Salvation Army bin... I hated that thing)
Vintage shawl (for me) Kraemer Alpaca
Sock Monkey hat for Colin (which he refuses to wear for some reason... my husband says he is smarter than we give him credit for :-P )
Socks for new baby
Spa Socks for my aunt
Lady Eleanor for me ( Best of The Year Award :-)
Charity scarf and hat (which I still have... yikes)
Dashing Mitts (intended for Michael... for me in the end)
Not bad for not much knitting, huh?
Unfinished objects include one pair of adult socks, Meghan's lace sweater (hopeless), the pink lace shawl, and Colin's Aran pullover sweater which I am currently working on.
We went to Barnes and Noble last night and I got his book:
For those of you who like to knit the classics.... this book is for you. There is only one sweater (vest) in this book that I wouldn't knit. Everything else I love. Especially this one..
The scallops at the bottom are knit separately and then sewn on. It's so different. And yet still pretty classy looking. There is another turtle neck pullover that I love with a cabled edge at the bottom and on the sleeves but I don't like how the sleeves are set in. They create some pointy edges at the shoulders which reminds of something Dr. Spock would wear on Star Trek. Check it out:
Am I crazy or is that weird?
