Remembering the good stuff: 2011 – the knitting

Basic hat for hubby

I’ve said it before – I’m a slow knitter. But if it’s about enjoying the process then I call this hobby a great success. Here are my favorite projects from 2011.

Look UP Valentine2

I started off strong and yarn bombed a tree in my city’s downtown area. Hubby even helped and has suggestions for next time we go out into the night.

Tesserae Socks by the fire

I finished a pair of Anne Hanson’s Tesserae socks out of a lovely rare gem of Blue Moon Socks that Rock for hubby. I loved the pattern and have plans to knit more.


In March I knit a beret for me that I’m still in love with. I didn’t expect to love it so much but the pattern (Spring Beret) was fun and the subtle sparkle of the Kollage Glisten yarn was a perfect pairing. I love wearing it everywhere and it makes me feel so very stylish.

Spring brought sock camp and more yarn bombing.

My Kind of Saturday Cowl

This sweet Irish Girlie Knits “My Kind of Saturday” cowl is knit from another unique Kollage yarn made out of recycled jeans a fantastic idea and perfect for Summer items. I love what Anne Hanson did with the sport weight version – designing around the casual jeans theme of making it look bandana-like. Take a gander at her gorgeous photos

As mentioned earlier this week grandma loved her Knit Like Crazy River Run Mitts.

And the knitting that brought the biggest smiles…

Wee Pumpkins! – So. Much. Fun.
