It’s 2011! I’d hate to sound cliché, but 2011 will totally be my year! I mostly say this because this is the year I finally finish college! After that, I will have full freedom to knit to my hearts desire. I don’t know why, but the closer I get to finishing the less time I have, but I did manage to squeeze in some knitting in 2010.

Gloves

These gloves are the bees knees! I made them late in the summer and I cannot even express the excitement I had as I knit them! I had kicked around the idea for these for sometime and to see it come to fruition, exactly how I envisioned them was quite exciting. I think I can say without a doubt that these were my favorite knits of 2010.

Someday, I hope to write the pattern up and share it with the internets.

Cowl

Mmmmm, Envy. I received this yarn as a birthday gift a couple of years ago, made a too short scarf, and then put it in a box to be frogged. More than a year later, I finally frogged it and made me a nice cowl. This pattern was quick and easy – I made mine  during a marathon of Daria marathon on Logo. A perfect evening, if you ask me.

2010 was also the year I properly learned to do things I failed at in the past. For one, I conquered the spindle. And I also conquered yarn dyeing with kool-aid. I tried this a few times in the past, but always ended up with a orangy-red hot mess. This time I, just like with the spindle, I was much more patient and ended up with much better results.

I can only imagine the adventures I will have in 2011, especially once I finish school! Happy new year everyone!


I just couldn’t finish it. Instead I opted for the Saturday Market Bag from Mag Knits.

This was so much easier on my hands! I attempted to knit this once before, but I couldn’t get the lace stitch right, which I why I thought crocheting somethings might be easier. After frogging the crochet bag, I went back to this one and it was super easy! I don’t even know what I had trouble to begin with. Up next, dishcloths?
