2011 in projects

It's that time of year again and everyone is posting about their New Year knitting resolutions. I'm not making any this year because last year's was a comlete failure. The only thing I did is knit some socks and some soft, warm gloves (come to think of it, too warm, considering the temperatures we've had so far this winter). I could blame it on life getting into way and bad things that happened in the family but I'm not going to do that. I'll keep these goals for next year, hoping it will be better than the last. And that's what I wish to all of you.


After 22 scarves in 2010, I managed to keep it under control and make only 8 in 2011!


This year's hit seem to have been mittens, 8 pairs altogether:


I'm also proud of my 5 sweaters/cardigans/vests (one of which is in child size, true!) but I'm not proud of the fact that I have photos of only 3 of them:


2011 also saw my first pair of socks, followed by two more, one for my husband and one more for myself:


Together with 2 hats, 2 phone cozies, a baby blankie and a table runner edging, it totals 30 projects. Not bad, considering what a difficult year it was.


I also contributed 9 squares to a collaborative project in Serbia group over on Ravelry, the result of which is a beautiful blanket (you can see it here).


Another collaborative project that began in 2011 is NS Needles' first knit-along. It started quite unexpectedly, one lazy evening over a glass of sangria, while pckristina and I were musing over possible projects for the yarns we got as presents from a friend.

  4. Oh za ime svijeta, kako možeš proglasiti neuspješnom godinu s tako mnogo opletenih radova? U odnosu na tebe ispada da nisam igle uopće u rukama držala!
    No, kako nisi zadovoljna, ja ti želim da ti ova bude uspješnija po vlastitim (vrlo visokim, moram primijetiti) kriterijima i da svakodnevni život što manje smetnji pravi tvom pletenju.

  5. Failure? Mora da se šališ!
    Nadam se da će ova godina na obiteljskom planu biti mirnija a na kretivnom vrlo plodna!

  6. Vrlo lepi radovi.
    Ja znam engleski, i dobro je približiti blog ljudima koji ne znaju naš jezik, ali šta sa našima koji ne znaju engleski?
    Uvek su dovoljne fotografije:)
    A i ova slova, valjda su provera da li smo pismeni, ne znam čemu služe, osim da nam oduzimaju vreme, da manje imamo vremena gledati prelepe radove!

  10. Nije bitna kvantiteta, nego kvaliteta! Ali izgleda da je Tebi oboje uspjelo u 2011. Zelim Tebi i Tvojima najprije zdravu, a odmah potom i sretnu 2012 - kad je srce stretno, onda i ono mjeri i vidi drugim ocima.
    Sve najbolje...
