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.
