2019 :: knitting

2019 wasn’t my best knitting year. Well, it wasn’t my best year whatsoever, but I am writing a post about knitting because I already wrote about finding home and I didn’t want to get too deep into the other things that happened this year.
Still, there was some knitting and I did find comfort in that. Looking at this list, it’s funny to see that I have been winging it most of the time. The house slippers were made from a (very simple) pattern, but other than that, I just knitted away.
That explains why this isn’t the most interesting list of knitting, but I had fun making each and every one of these items and that’s what counts.

In 2019 I knit:

:: the sunset shawl (top picture)
:: a rectangle 
:: two headbands
:: eleven hats (one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,, eight, nine, ten, eleven)
:: giant potholders
:: a poncho (or large cowl) (second picture)
:: four dishcloths (that were supposed to be potholders)
:: a sweater dress
:: a green cowl
:: a little circle to put under our tiny Christmas tree
:: a pair of simple house slippers

 If I have to pick a favorite, I guess it would be my sweater dress. I wore it (paired with a long sleeve shirt and leggings) a lot during our time in The Netherlands, it was just perfectly warm and comfortable.

(p.s. yes, I know I’m a bit late with this post, but I wrote it last week and then I forgot about it.)

  1. The important thing was you did KNIT, don't measure it by FOs, measure it by the satisfaction of making knitted fabric. Focus on the yarn flowing through your hands!
