2012 in projects

December 31, 2012

Good grief...it's that time of the year already! Can you believe it? So ahum...2012 in projects:


Fair isle yoke finished in the first days of 2012!


I knit my first Icelandic Sweater. The start of an addiction!


Orchid Thief! I barely made it with one skein Malabrigo Sock!


Okay this...was actually a March project...but I finished it on one of the last days
of March so that´s why I justified it ;)


My boat jumper! Since I did some designing on this myself
I'm especially happy with this one.


My knitting nightmare & dream in one! Took me forever!
No finished knitting in this month!


My yellow skirt! This one had no propper blogpost but I wear is a lot!


Halla finished! At last!!! The result was worth the sweat and tears though!


My Olympic knitting Challange and second Icelandic cardigan!


*Sigh* This month was mainly:

Work in progress




Soay finished, this is the most wearable knit I've ever knitted.


Ah! Secret project!


Okay...October was a lie...this is my most wearable knit ever!

So that was 2012 in knit projects. I knitted much more in the beginning of the year than in the second half of the year. That's true I was in a bit of a non-knitting mood. That because I had to much expectations of myself, I made knitting a "have to" instead of a hobby, which is supposed to be fun.
I've sorted this out now ;) That's why I don't make any goals for the next year...no amount of sweaters I have to knit next years, no amount of sewing, no amount of books I have to read for me in 2013.
I have nothing against folks who do make these kind of goals, they just don't work for me.

I wish you and you're loved ones all the best for the next year! I can't wait to see what it has in store for me,
how I will develop myself, what I will make, what I will learn and who I will meet.

I can't wait!

  1. Happy new year! You're some kind of jumper knitting queen! I love that fairisle one. I think you might be right about the dangers of a 'have to' attitude to knitting - it's supposed to be fun, right? :) x

  2. Wow! You've got a lot of range in the things you knit. Your Var makes me want to try an icelandic sweater so bad. And the Halla is adorable!

  3. Wauw, supermooi en vrolijk :) Bewondering dat je zulke mooie kledingstukken zelf maakt en dat je het deelt, ik vind het mooi om te zien :) Veel plezier met erna kijken, dragen en nieuwe dingen maken :) Liefs Kim
