Happy Knit Year

I Wish You All A Happy New Year
It really is strange that we look back just because we have a new date. But we do. I do. It seems that I have used over 28 kilometers of yarn in 2015. No, I am not showing a video of that. LOL! But here are some highlights :-) Apart from three gifts (two baby hats and scarf) all of my projects are knitted in colors. No black, white, gray, beige, brown and so on :-)

Scarf Of The Year
I really enjoy knitting the Red Katana scarf. Garter stitch with a little extra that just makes it more fun. I love the effect the two colors make in it. I ended up with five of them - one for a gift...
Here are all five of them :-)

Rainbow Of The Year
No year without a rainbow. I knitted a garter stitch shawl with Kauni and mohair and it came out just what I wanted. Large, soft and warm.

Yet Again And Again
The Viajante has become something I reapeat over and over again. There were three off my needles - one knitted as a gift. It has become my Tour de France knit...
All three of them together...
Sweater Of The Year
For the first time I have managed to knit a sweater that actually fits, is lovely to wear and that I use a lot. How to measure for a garment is the key, and so is the design. Take a look at my last one here and see how it looks.

Mittens And Price Of The Year
I always want to knit more mittens. I almost never do. They are quick and lovely knits, but the fact that I have to knit two makes it less attractive... But, I managed to keep it going in an easter competition where my mittens actaullay won the Color Delight Price.

Polymer Clay Of The Year
Polymer clay makes my soul sing. I wish I could do a lot more. But knitting is really a great thing to lean on instead. Stitch markers has been great for gifts, for my own use and just for the making of them.

For the statistics, here are the number for 2015: 8 scarves, 4 shawls, 3 Viajantes, 4 sweaters, 2 cowl, 2 baby hats and 1 pair of mittens.

Thank you for being with my blog through 2015. For all your comments, advice, encouragements and for your love. You bring color to my world by just being in blog land. Take care of yourself in 2016. Spent time with people that makes you fell well - and let the rest take care of themselves. Find your color - and never let go :-)

  4. Sikke en produktiv farveglad strikkepige! Jeg har en stor svaghed for Red Katana, synes det er både raffineret og elegant.
    Trøjerne er bare skønne. De kan lyse op på en januardag!
    Godt nyt år og fortsat god farveglad strikkefornøjelse.
