A 2019 Knitting Recap….

Hi Friends,

Last year’s blog was launched with a blog post called “Knitting Intentions for 2019” in which I talked about my intentions for the new year, knitting and otherwise.  So, I thought that it might be nice to take a look at what I knit in 2019.

My 2019 knitting log was filled with projects! In 2019 I cast on 30 knitting projects, completed twenty-two, five are works in progress that I will finish over the next couple of months, one sits in my car and is used only if I forget my other knitting projects and I frogged four. If I cast a project on and dread working on in, I am not afraid to abandon the project and find another use for the yarn.

While I do knit to relax, the reality is, knitting is part of my JOB. As you know, seeing samples in a shop makes all the difference in the world and we, at the shop, are here to create them. So where you may knit for a couple of hours in the evening, I might knit for 5 or 6 hours in a day. No complaints here, I am lucky to do what I love! So on to what my fingers were busy with the last 12 months….

And I need to finish these pieces –  Sleeves are all that is left on Machi by Rievive in mYak lace (coming to the shop soon). Jennfier Steinglass’s Aboreal, knit in Rowan Moordale, will get a lot of attention this week as I have some hospital waiting to do. Dunham in Shibui Nest and Silk Cloud, in my FAV color, Velvet, only has a few more inches to go! Ronin by Julie Hoover, knit in Shibui Silk Cloud and Fern, will be seamed in the quiet of January.  (Sorry for the wrinkles, but hey, they have been squished in my knitting bag.)

A few pieces have not be photographer here: Destination Unknown by Cheryl Faust, featured on the January 2020 newsletter, Sunday Cardigan by Petite Knitter, Tincure by Andrea Mowry and Some Kind of Wonderful by Susan B. Anderson.

So there you have it… 2019 wrapped up with wooly hug.

Best wishes to all of you for a happy 2020. May you have peace and joy in your life and time to… Knit and be happy!

🧶  Ann

P.S. **check back on January 10th for my 2020 intentions**
