2016 Knitting Project round-up

Here are my knitting/crochet/spinning aims from the beginning of 2016:

  • Continue with the aim of one finished object per month
    Considering I had almost three months off knitting, I’m fairly pleased with managing to complete 11 projects.  3 of the completed items were started in 2015, the others are all from 2016.
  • Knit a usable item from my handspun
    Still not quite managed this, but I’m including my mittens from unspun mawata in this category.
  • Watch more of the Craftsy classes I have bought (so tempting when they are on sale to buy them all)
    I have watched a few more of them, but still could do better. At least I haven’t bought many this year!
  • Learn a new skill (perhaps Brioche stitch)
    Still not learned Brioche.
    I did spend a week learning inkle weaving, so I’m ticking this category
    I also learnt to knit backwards
  • Spin more
    Had a go at spindle-spinning silk tops
    I’m pretty bad at keeping records of spinning. I have done some more spinning.

Here’s the gallery of finished items: 6 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of mittens, a shawl, a blanket and a toy.

Note that Ravelry links will only work if you are a Rav member (sign up: it’s free)

  1. Mittens from Knitworthy 2, project finished on New Year’s Day
  2. Sweet Coriolis socks. Using yarn from a Knitting Goddess club from years ago – one sock is mostly yellow with some grey, the other is mostly grey with some yellow. I don’t have a picture of the finished pair, but they fit very well.
  3. A non-matching pair of socks, using two patterns that I only wanted to knit once.
  4. Tour de Sock 2016 round 1
  5. Tour de Sock 2016 round 2
  6. Tour de Sock 2016 round 3: backwards knitting!
  7. My Ravellenic Games project: A Follow Your Arrow 2 shawl. Really chuffed to get this done within the time limit
  8. Crochet blanket for my beautiful niece
  9. Tour de Sock 2016 round 6: finished some time after the deadline
  10. Squad Mitts – a surprise present for a good friend
  11. Denise: a toy for de niece, from Edwards Crochet Imaginarium

Aims for 2017:

  • Complete 12 or more knitting/crochet projects
  • Complete 2 or more spinning projects
  • Keep accurate spinning records
  • Knit something from handspun
  • Brioche stitch
  • Watch more Craftsy classes
