2018 was a pretty good year, knitwise… I completed 40 projects, which is my biggest project count yet, though many were small, quick projects.
Interestingly, I did not knit one shawl this year, which quite surprised me when I went over all my projects. If you’ve been around the blog for any length of time, you’ll know I love knitting shawls.
There were a lot of socks knit this year, thanks in no small part to my On the Go designs:
In fact, I knit 11 pairs, which I think is the most I’ve ever knit in the year.
While I didn’t get around to releasing any designs this year, I did work on them..
And I’ve been told my Cygnet protoype got lots of wear over the summer.
I was very pleased to finally finish the Empire Line Cardigan
A knit I’d started and frogged and restarted many, many times. If you count from when I very first put needles to yarn on this one, it took me 11 years to finally complete!
And of course, there were many fun knits for the fair.
Sadly, I will not be entering the Ancaster Fair in 2019. I found out that the reason my beautiful yellow socks did not win a ribbon was because they were disqualified for not being “a new item”. I politely requested to know how the judges determined that, and provided proof that they were new (ravelry entry and blog posts), but the Fair Adminstration couldn’t be bothered to respond. So I won’t be spending all that time on projects that can arbitrarily disqualified. I don’t mind not winning a ribbon, but I want it to be for a fair reason
So what will 2019 bring….? Tune in tomorrow!
