In counting up my knitting for last year (isn't it wonderful to have a record in Ravelry?) I was pleasantly surprised to find I'd completed fifteen projects. This was a significant decrease from the 24 and 23 I'd knitted in 2009 and 2008 and none of them was particularly large or complex, but even so I was pleased with what I managed to achieve in a very busy year that included moving house and renovating.
By category I knitted (ravlink)
7 pairs of socks
1 pair of mitts
1 sleeveless jumper
1 baby blanket
And some winners:
The project of which I'm most proud is my version of the Sage Remedy sleeveless jumper (sweater for those from North America). This was neither particularly difficult nor time consuming, but completing a garment as distinct from an accessory is an achievement for me.
The most favourited project on Ravelry was the Silvery Baby Blanket, using Jared Flood's Tweed Baby Blanket design. I think this appealed particularly because of the colour combination of silvery-grey and lavender.
The piece of knitting that's been most worn (though it's probably the project with the most errors) is my version of the Citron shawl. It's just so wearable. Because it's knitted from laceweight yarn it's very soft, light and snuggly, and because it's bright red it's cheering to wear it with my grey and black winter clothes.
The most fun to knit? Probably the shawl I knitted using Mustaa Villaa's variation on the Wool Peddler's Shawl. This is a very simple knit that combines two of my favourite knitty things - garter stitch and tweedy yarn. I'm nothing if not predictable.
I've a couple of other projects I'd hoped to finish by the end of the year, but they were overtaken by the knitting flurry needed to meet Personal Sock Club completion deadlines. But the good side of my failure to finish is that they'll make my 2011 total look more respectable.
