I've been quite the productive knitter this past year! With the help of picasa, I've pulled together a collage of (most of) my projects completed during 2010.
(just for fun, here's last year's collage for comparison's sake)
I've made a lot of progress this year! I think 2009 was decidedly the year of hats, but this year I can't really put a label to it. I knitted more kids' sweaters, venturing in to top down raglan designs, fair isle, as well as pieces knit separately and seamed. I knit a lot more lace this year, including 4 shawls, as well as a couple pairs of lace socks. I did a couple pairs of mittens this year, both fingerless and with fingers, which I'm planning on doing more of very shortly. It was a good year!
In the new year, I'd like to do more sweaters for me and try to knit more for me. It's amazing how much of what's above I've kept for myself. 7 of the items above are still with me ( and three of those are toques). I'm still working on melding what I like to wear with what I like to knit, ya know? I want to knit more socks, for sure. But my main goal I think is to knit more in a finer gauge. I think I'm happier with projects when I do, and my knitting is certainly teaching me patience. Maybe there's a fingering-weight sweater in my not-too-distant future. :)
What about you guys? What are your knitting / crafting goals for 2011?
