Which, I realize, was way below what I have knitted other years. I guess I realized that although I love hand knit garments, I am not wearing the sweaters that I've made nearly enough to justify knitting more. There are a few sweaters that I wear regularly, but the others add more bulk than I'd like. And my knitted skirts? Love them. In fact, I've thought about doing a simple cable knit skirt like I saw so much of at Anthropologie early this winter. I have resumed a beginner's knitting class, and i am SO proud of their accomplishments in just a few short months! That's where my real love is...teaching others to knit. So, in 2011, I didn't do much, and what I did was smaller projects. We'll start with the most recent:
A Very Merry Christmas Stocking by Joy Green
Jess Hutchison Bear and Bunny
And the last two are patterns that I created, and wrote, based on two pricey scarves by Fossil. Yup...I directly copied them, and will share the pattern with anyone who wants it.
So that's my knitting 2011 year in review...somewhat paltry results, but enough to keep me more than
inspired to finish some stuff in my knitting bag and to try some new things in 2012! I even have the slightest urge to knit a pair of mittens and socks!
