2012 in projects

Good grief…it’s that time of the year already! Can you believe it? So ahum…2012 in projects:

Januari: 


Fair isle yoke finished in the first days of 2012!

Februari:

I knit my first Icelandic Sweater. The start of an addiction!
March: 
Orchid Thief! I barely made it with one skein Malabrigo Sock!
April:
Okay this…was actually a March project…but I finished it on one of the last days
of March so thatΒ΄s why I justified it πŸ˜‰
May
My boat jumper! Since I did some designing on this myself
I’m especially happy with this one.
June: 
My knitting nightmare & dream in one! Took me forever!
No finished knitting in this month!
Sewing:
My yellow skirt! This one had no propper blogpost but I wear is a lot!
July:
Halla finished! At last!!! The result was worth the sweat and tears though!
August:
My Olympic knitting Challange and second Icelandic cardigan!
Sebtember:
*Sigh* This month was mainly:
Work in progress
and
Frogging
October:
Soay finished, this is the most wearable knit I’ve ever knitted.
November:

Ah! Secret project!

December:
Okay…October was a lie…this is my most wearable knit ever!
So that was 2012 in knit projects. I knitted much more in the beginning of the year than in the second half of the year. That’s true I was in a bit of a non-knitting mood. That because I had to much expectations of myself, I made knitting a “have to” instead of a hobby, which is supposed to be fun.
I’ve sorted this out now πŸ˜‰ That’s why I don’t make any goals for the next year…no amount of sweaters I have to knit next years, no amount of sewing, no amount of books I have to read for me in 2013.
I have nothing against folks who do make these kind of goals, they just don’t work for me.

I wish you and you’re loved ones all the best for the next year! I can’t wait to see what it has in store for me,
how I will develop myself, what I will make, what I will learn and who I will meet.

I can’t wait!

  1. Happy new year! You're some kind of jumper knitting queen! I love that fairisle one. I think you might be right about the dangers of a 'have to' attitude to knitting – it's supposed to be fun, right? πŸ™‚ x

  2. Wauw, supermooi en vrolijk πŸ™‚ Bewondering dat je zulke mooie kledingstukken zelf maakt en dat je het deelt, ik vind het mooi om te zien πŸ™‚ Veel plezier met erna kijken, dragen en nieuwe dingen maken πŸ™‚ Liefs Kim
