2013 Creative Recap

And now it's time for the annual creative recap. This year I knit a lot. I didn't realize how much until I took this screencap of my ravelry project page. I posted up 20 projects. And as with every year, not every project made it up. This year I made 9 pairs of socks, 4 sweaters (which included a Dad sized sweater and a fingering weight sweater), 2 shawls, 2 infinity scarves, 1 regular scarf, 1 hat, and 1 ornament. There is a pretty good chance that I knit a half million stitches this year. (Actually, I know that I did. Most of what I knit gets partially ripped multiple times before it is completed.)


As for design work, I put out the companion shawl to Celestarium, the Southern Skies. And then I released Lit Knits. I still can't believe that the book is finished.

So what will this next year hold? Well, I had a look at my stash today, and it looks like I need to knit up a lot more socks. I'm definitely not keeping up with my sock yarn acquisitions. I also have a few designs in the works. But after finishing the book, I think this year will be more about selfish knitting.

What are your guys' knitting plans for the upcoming year? And do you have a particular weight of yarn that you can't keep up with?

Congratulations again on your book! This is a great achievement! Happy 2014 to you! I look forward to seeing your new socks! As for me, I will probably try to knit a sweater and continue to destash my very small stash at the same time :)

You go, girl :) Looking forward to catching up with you after all the big hurrahs!

I have friends who are encouraging me to tackle the Beekeeper's Quilt as a way to make a dent in my sock yarn stash. I've gone as far as to purchase the pattern. I think I will follow the Revelry Group for awhile and then jump into the fray.

Selfish knitting sounds like a great plan for the year, you had a very successful 2013!

With the book alone you had an epic knitting year, that you released another pattern AND knit all those other items is seriously impressive! Not that you need to, but you totally earned a year of selfish knitting!

Such a great year for you! :) The stash I can't seem to keep up with is worsted weight. Don't get me wrong, I have plenty of fingering and sport (and all the others, really) but my worsted pile is by far the largest.
