A year in knitting

I have been reviewing my Ravelry project page to see just what I achieved knit-wise in 2012, its actually quite a list, 50 projects and only one frogged, one in progress.  I have used mainly stash. Only buying odd balls where needed apart from a major spend in March and a few odd charity shop hauls.

I have achieved a few knit related goals - learnt how to dye and how to crochet, both of which need practice.  We won't talk about drop spindles, something that needs major concentration!

These are some of my favourites













So what is planned for 2013?  I already have a request for a ten stitch blanket for each of my grandsons. Two more baby cardigans for a friend.  I need to have another try with the drop spindle, get to grips with crochet


and I think that because I was so good yarn wise in 2012 that I deserve a bit of stash enhancement. So watch this space to see what I treat myself too.

Wishing you all a knitty new year x

  1. A great achievement indeed! Well done, Sue. I have seen many of these for real when in progress, and some you have worn when finished, and can vouch for your production rate and expert knitting skills.

    Looking forward to seeing your projects in 2013, and the gifts that you will be buying for yourself. Good luck also with the crochet, dyeing and drop spindle.
