2013 Knitting Recap (a little late)

So we’re over a month into the New Year…better late than never.

The top row, left 2 projects are from Legendary Knits volume 2 by Anne Podlesak of Wooly Wonka Fibers. These two patterns are part of an 8 pattern book that is in the process of being released as you read this. Top row, right project, are the Dragon’s Egg Socks also by Anne Podlesak. These socks (yes, these actual socks) are the ones that are photographed in the Unofficial Harry Potter Knits magazine as I had the pleasure of knitting the sample pair.

In the second row are 3 projects from Legendary Knits volume 1. The left two are projects I knit for myself and on the right is the Scheherazade Stole that was a sample knit for the book. With the exception of the Sleeping Beauty Cowl, all of the yarn shown in the top 2 rows was hand dyed by Wooly Wonka Fibers.

Third row features my Rainbow Harvest Moon in which I discovered a new pattern designer, Heidi Kirrmaier. Love the finishing details in her patterns. Then we have 2 more patterns with yarn by Wooly Wonka Fibers. Unsinkable which was a special collaboration between Anne and Kirsten Kapur for the anniversary of the Titanic sinking and Alexia which was a Shakespeare in Lace Club pattern.

Finally, 3 colorful pairs of socks. For more details about any of these projects please see them on my Ravelry projects page.

ETA: Oh my gosh, how could I forget two more cowls? I had not marked either of them as complete on Ravelry. Will update with photos and yardage later today.

Ruffly Neck Warmer and Blenheim Cowl, neither of which I marked complete on Ravelry because I never uploaded the final photos of them.

2013 Knitting Recap

Also, I wanted to say that I accomplished two knitting goals last year: to knit something with my handspun (Blenheim Cowl – the red/purple yarn is my handspun) and to get comfortable with stranded colorwork.
