2012 has been an amazing year of knitting for me. It is hard to believe that almost 365 days have passed from the point where I started tabulating my yearly yardage total. So far, I have finished 10 shawls, 12 hats, 11 cowls, 6 sweaters. 3 pairs of gloves, a blanket and a few other things. I can't really remember this year without seeing needles in my hands. (I can't stop thinking about what I will knit in the coming year.... The list is long, but I will get back to that as the month draws near, ie next week!)
Earlier this morning, I bound off a Cap Sleeve Lattice Top by Purl Bee in Elsebeth Silky Wool. Dreamy yarn, easy pattern, and an end result that really matches my personal style.
I recently finished an Ishbel Shawl in Malabrigo Sock in the Persia colorway. What an amazing little shawl. Now I understand why there are thousands of project pages on Ravelry. Yay for Ysolda Teague and her designs. I gifted this to my mother in law for Christmas and I really hope she loves it as much as I do!
And an Oaklet Shawl in Classic Elite Miracle. My mother in law picked this yarn out while visiting a yarn store I had never been to... the yarn is tencel and alpaca. The end result is fuzzy and soft. And the pattern can be found for free on Rav.
I gifted my sister in law a recently finished Pasha Hat in Malabrigo Silky Merino. Jane Richmond can really do no wrong when it comes to hats..
I'd say it was a fruitful few weeks. I am approaching 12,300 yards for the year and I am desperate to see just how far I can go. Off to the drawing board and to my stash to continue on! Happy Knitting!
