I don’t often have time to knit. I started back in 2007 and haven’t really progressed very much, simply due to the fact that I have very little time to devote to it, and when I can squeeze in some time, I spend it working on things I know I can accomplish, rather than learning new stitches. I do hope to progress at some point. But for now, this is where I am, and I’m accepting it.
With that said, I did get to complete three projects this year.
Well, actually, now that I look back, it would seem as though this first project was started in 2013. So I’m even more behind on posting about my projects than I am on completing them. But that’s okay, too.
I knitted this scarf for a friend of mine.
I bought a yarn that I knew she would like (pink being the only requirement) and didn’t follow a pattern. I simply used the knit and purl stitches, knitting for 10 rows and purling for 2 (if memory serves me correctly).
Here you can see the pattern up close:
This year, I completed two more scarves, both the same yarn and both the same pattern.
One went to my mother and the other to my mother-in-law.
This is the “Sea Cucumbers” pattern from Sheryl Thies’ Ocean Breezes: Knitted Scarves Inspired By the Sea.
They all came out pretty well, if I do say so myself.
I’m currently working on a “baby” blanket for my niece. She’s four. She’ll probably turn five before it’s complete. But my older niece was six when she finally got hers. I am using the same blanket pattern as before, just a different yarn color.
Here’s hoping it will be finished before too long!
What projects (not necessarily knitting) are you currently working on?
