Oh Joy!

Last year, seems the whole year went by with not much to show or tell.  I was deep in the knitting doldrums and not overly excited about anything I knit.  Knitting happened, but it was not with the same enthusiasm as this year has been, and it's only February!

This year, I made the Amelia hat for my 12 in '12 made with Madelinetosh Vintage in Duchess:


I really liked the hat, but I gave it away, not to Carmen (my hat model), but to someone else.  I was happy to hand it off because it really wasn't 'me'.

Then I made the Broken Seed Stitch Socks which I liked, made with Cherry Tree Hill Potluck in water colors and Knit Picks Bare in white:


Then I made the Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend, which took only a few hours to make, and it was a joy to see some of my Wool Ease (in heather green and tan) go:


Then I was had a great idea for another project which started with the left over yarn from the Broken Seed Stitch socks:


And below I finished one sock from the Think Outside the Sox book called Fair Isle Made Easy:


I love this pattern and it'll be my third project for 2012 when I'm done.  How happy I am!  Details will follow when I'm done with the pair.  That is, if I have enough yarn to finish the second sock.  I'm going with the premise that I can never run out of yarn.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

In addition, I made 3 preemie hats, so I figure the knitting doldrums have officially come to an end.  The only thing missing is my spinning - and I'm really missing it.

Now I'm off to knit my second sock before the feel good of the first sock wears off.

  1. Wonderful! It's great that you have fun knitting again. Your new socks look fantastic, or I should say the one sock. You'll have enough for the second! You never run out of yarn!
