2019 :: knitting
2019 wasn't my best knitting year. Well, it wasn't my best year whatsoever, but I am writing a post about knitting because I already wrote about finding home and I didn't want to get too deep into the other things that happened this year.
Still, there was some knitting and I did find comfort in that. Looking at this list, it's funny to see that I have been winging it most of the time. The house slippers were made from a (very simple) pattern, but other than that, I just knitted away.
That explains why this isn't the most interesting list of knitting, but I had fun making each and every one of these items and that's what counts.
In 2019 I knit:
:: the sunset shawl (top picture)
:: a rectangle
:: two headbands
:: eleven hats (one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,, eight, nine, ten, eleven)
:: giant potholders
:: a poncho (or large cowl) (second picture)
:: four dishcloths (that were supposed to be potholders)
:: a sweater dress
:: a green cowl
:: a little circle to put under our tiny Christmas tree
:: a pair of simple house slippers
If I have to pick a favorite, I guess it would be my sweater dress. I wore it (paired with a long sleeve shirt and leggings) a lot during our time in The Netherlands, it was just perfectly warm and comfortable.
(p.s. yes, I know I'm a bit late with this post, but I wrote it last week and then I forgot about it.)
