2014 knits (& crochets!)

Leave a comment

I actually knit a lot in 2014 (and crocheted some too) – I finished 24 projects, 18 of which I made in the last few months of the year. (Wow!)

The breakdown:

  • Projects – 24
  • Gifts – 16
  • Blankets – 1
  • Dishcloths – 3
  • Potholders – 3
  • Hats – 4
  • Cowls – 6
  • Slippers – 1
  • Mittens/mitts – 2
  • Shawls – 2
  • Toys – 1
  • Christmas ornaments – 1
  • Sweaters – 2
  • Socks – 1 (pair)

(The numbers don’t quite add up because several of the dishcloths and potholders were counted as one “project.”)

I was a knitting fiend the last quarter of the year and after swearing off knitting for others a few years ago, I whipped up a whole bunch of great stuff as Christmas gifts. Most of it was worsted or bulky weight stuff so it went pretty quickly. Simple too – nothing too taxing that I wouldn’t be able to put down at a moment’s notice when some kid or another spilled milk, hit a sibling, walked into a wall or whatever bizarre reason my presence was required right now, mama. It was fun. I’m still not going to knit anyone socks or a sweater, but a bulky cowl? Sure thing.

Some of them I’ve blogged already, some I haven’t but likely will be in the future. A few of my favorites haven’t been seen here yet so I’m really looking forward to sharing them!

And now for the photos…
