Knits at 11

Or, rather, KNITS OF '11.

1. Seaman's Square Cap I, 2. Hat's Not Another Noro Scarf, 3. Cable and button detail, 4. Ragtop v.1 & 2, 5. Puerperium, 6. PS June Project Sweater, 7. Cerasifera on the trellis, 8. Asymmetrical, 9. "Blue" yarn, 10. Stripe Study II, 11. Purple & pink, 12. Caera Cowl, 13. Monster Bum, 14. My PS Yellow Project, 15. Pixie, 16. Woven Cowl II, 17. Freestyle, 18. Nice and simple, 19. Lakedale front, 20. Christmas booties.

  • Five hats (not shown: another "Square," similar to the first, and a woman's cabled cap just finished)
  • Six wraps/shawls
  • Two pairs of mitts
  • Two infant cardigans
  • One bag
  • Five (!) cowls
  • One pair of adorable toddler pants
  • One pair of red booties

Started in 2011 but not finished: another child's sweater, a quick vest for me (well, I finished it but it doesn't fit me), a small toy, a scarf, another vest-y type thing, a cardigan (it's all over 'cept the seaming... and other various finishing).

And then there are all those squares.

And all that yarn I dyed. Eleven of the projects pictured above -- plus the unfinished cardigan -- make use of hand-dyed yarn.

This one was sent over to (blogless) Flan a few days ago as padding for Hooked, Flan's number having been the random one.

I thank Ravelry, Flickr, and the knitorious archives for helping pull this all together. I'm not a very good record-keeper, so I can't really say how this compares to previous years. I don't set goals, either. It is what it is... and it's pretty fab, if you ask me. I'm thrilled with my fiber-related accomplishments of 2011.

2012? Bring it. *clink*  Happy New Year, everyone!




All beautiful. I need to do a post like this, too.


A very productive year, yarn-wise.


I'll drink to that! :-)
A very lovely fiber year, Vicki!
Happy New Year.


So lovely, Vicki. My favorite? That Lakedale shawl.....SO pretty. Did you dye the yarn for it?


What a productive year! Nice and simple is my favorite.

Great recap!


You have had an amazing fiber year. To have knit (mostly) with yarn you've dyed is a wonderful accomplishment. Your curiosity has led to a new avocation and an excellent year of knitting enjoyment, for us!.
