2009 - A Knitting Review

So last year I made a list of my knitting goals for 2009. I hit some of my goals that I made, fell short on others, but overall I am happy with my 2009 year o' knitting.

I did stick to knit from the sock yarn stash. I originally said no sock yarn until Stitches, but I changed that to no sock yarn until Sock Summit once I realized that SS09 was a reality. It was a good decision to make that change. I got lots of good stuff in Portland. And, honestly, how was I going to go to Sock Summit and not buy sock yarn? Please. :)

Another goal was to knit a pair of socks a month. I did knit 12 pairs of socks this year, but it did not work out to a pair a month (I mean, I really did knit three pairs of socks over Sock Summit weekend!). But, 12 pairs is good enough to say goal accomplished.

And then there was the 5 sweater goal. Hmm, how about three? I guess I didn't turn into the sweater knitter I hoped to. I blame it on catching the Ishbel bug. :)

Those couple of WIPs that I have had for years are still just as unfinished as they were last December. I have not yet frogged the projects, but I am seriously considering it.

Here is a run down of a few things I knit this year:

  • 1 clapotis

  • 6 hats (3 adult sized, 1 kid sized, 2 baby sized)

  • 3 Ishbels

  • 1 beet

  • 2 Noro striped scarves

Obviously, you can check out more of what I knit this year on my Ravelry project page.

So, what will 2010 bring for my knitting? Hmm, I don't really know. There are a couple things that I have up my sleeve, including a CPH, a whole bunch of baby knitting, and with any luck some wedding knitting (gotta get a ring first for this one, though!).

Hope everyone has a great New Year. Thanks for reading the blog and I hope you will stitck around in 2010. I think it's going to be a very good year for knitting!

So, what are your knitting plans for 2010?
