knitting in 2010

So, apparently I only blog from January through August. I guess that means I'm right on time!

Mystery Stole 4
Snowflake's Woodside
Cherie Amour (seaming and blocking, no knitting in 2010)
Malabrigo Houdini socks
Wisp (blocking and buttons, no knitting in 2010)

Also, I crocheted two brain slugs for Snowflake's and my Hallowe'en costume, and wove a scarfy thing.

So, of the things I finished in 2010, there were:
17 sweaters
9 shawls/scarves (10 if you count Wisp, 11 if you count the woven scarf thing)
12 hats (including 3 baby hats)
8 pairs of socks
1 blanket
1 baby blanket
6 pairs of mitten-type things
1 skirt
1 square for a charity blanket
2 brain slugs

It comes out to 34252 yards, which is 19.5 miles.

This year, I participated in IntSweMoDo, a challenge to knit 12 sweaters in a year, and I finished! I acutally knit 15 (I didn't count sweaters for which I didn't actually do any knitting in 2010.) I also did Single Skein September, an attempt to knit some single skein projects, and I won the prize! Yay! I also won a prize in the WEBS 200th podcast giveaway, which was awesome! I tried to participate in Socktober, but all the socks I knit in September had worn me down, and I ended up pretty much just knitting the Yggdrasil blanket instead. I took my very first knitting class: an Estonian mittens class with Nancy Bush, which was super awesome! I also "taught" one friend to crochet and urged another friend to pick up dyeing. Hurray!

Next year, I plan to participate in IntSweMoDo2011, and to knit down some of my stash. In particular, I have 10 sweaters of yarn in my stash, and I want those to be 10 of my sweaters in 2011. I also have a couple of stealth projects in the works, one of which will be big. Plus, I really need to focus more on my schoolwork, and I've made a resolution to read 6 books in 2011. Wish me luck!
