2010 Knitting Year in Review

Filed under: Crafts — Catherine @ 11:51 am

It’s that time of year where I look back at all the items I knit or crocheted last year. Surprisingly, I hardly knit anything the first 6 months of the year while we were wedding planning. You could almost say this is a half-year in review and then my results don’t look so bad!Before I jump in, I need to share the last couple of items I finished! Between the bibs and the ornaments, I finished knitting Ishbel. It is sadly still waiting for its photo op but you will see a pic of it blocking in the photo mosaic below. Perhaps after we get our foot of snow I can take some pictures of it lying on the fluffy white stuff.

I also knit a couple more ornament covers. I found the that less knitting = more stretching = better looking ornament. When I ran out of Ikea ornaments, I picked some up at Target (dollar spot!). In total I made 8 of these and got to keep one!


I also knit a scarf for my sister in this awesome yarn called Pomp-a-Doodle.

Project name: Pomp-a-Doodle Scarf
Pattern: Pomp-a-Doodle 1 Ball Scarf
Yarn: As the pattern name states, just 1 skein of PaD yarn in Plush Plum
Needles: sz 9s
Started: Dec 11
Finished: Dec 11
Notes: I love quick projects and this was easy to knit with. The scarf comes out a little short but it’s still functional and so soft!

I couldn’t resist, I had to knit a scarf for me too.


This colorway is African Violet and took just 2 days to knit.

Now that I am all caught up, I can properly do my 2010 Knitting (Half) Year in Review.

Last year I knit 12 items. This year… 8.

– 1 pair of socks
– 1 baby hat
– 2 baby bibs
– 1 shawl
– 2 scarves
– ornaments (I only count this as one since they are so small)

So sad! I really need to pick it up for 2011. My goal is to at least get back up to 12… heck, 15! I know I can do it!



  1. I know, knitting just has not been high on my priority list for the past year or so. So much house stuff, sewing, ballet, pilates, pets, LIFE. I need to just get back to knitting when I sit and watch TV, I guess…

  2. Yeah it took me awhile to get back in to it. I usually try and knit a couple rows in bed before I go to sleep. All that yarn isn’t going to knit itself though!
