The Year in Knitting (and Crocheting, and Weaving, and Crafting…):
2012 Projects

Favourite project:
That’s gotta be the Dancing Cranes stole. It’s simply the most beautiful thing I’ve ever knit… even if it does shed all over everything.

Least Favourite project:
…the ones I still haven’t finished. :(

Patterns Published:
None, and that makes me annoyed.

Last Year’s Resolutions and Plans:
– spin more
– knit something with handspun yarn
– design and publish two new patterns

Yeah, not so much.

– try a new sock architecture

I didn’t get to try any of Cat Bordhi’s sockitectures, but I did really like the toe-up sock with a gusset! It fits really well. If I use the pattern again, I’d probably want to use variegated or (semi-)solid yarn, instead of striped.

– finish Napramach and the Stripy Socks

Er…

– finish the Dancing Cranes stole in time to wear to a wedding

Yes! I did this! And it was awesome!

– cast on for fancy cabled knee socks
– use up more yarn and fibre than I purchase
– get some stock in the Etsy shop

…nope. :/

Plans for 2013:

Everything I didn’t get to do this past year!

– spin more
– knit something with handspun yarn
– design and publish two new patterns
– finish Napramach and the Stripy Socks
– cast on for fancy cabled knee socks
– use up more yarn and fibre than I purchase
– get some stock in the Etsy shop
