2004 Update

Yes, it has been a few months since I posted. Guess I am not much of a blogger, but I decided to at least present my list of 2004 projects. I was amazed to see that I had a total of 32 items for the year! So here goes:

2004 Knitting Projects
  1. Seaman's scarf in blue silk/wool
  2. AbFab afghan, Colinette in greens/yellow
  3. Ribbed striped hat, in blue and beige
  4. Another ribbed hat, same pattern, same yarn
  5. Cardigan in red/blue Deco-ribbon
  6. Garter stitch scarf in blues
  7. Simple socks
  8. Pullover, Hunter, in Rowan Summer Tweed, blue
  9. Scarf, Eros in purple/green
  10. Tank top, baby blue cotton tape
  11. Child's aran sweater, Rowan cotton glace, light blue
  12. Longitudinal scarf, red Deco-ribbon/Splash
  13. Shawl, Mountain colors raspberry
  14. Hearts baby hat, Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran, white/red
  15. Lamb baby blanket
  16. Fern pullover, frogged # 8 and made this sweater instead!
  17. Bucket hat, in Debbie Bliss denim
  18. Cardigan "Air", Rowan Calmer in coral
  19. Hat, "Aura"
  20. Booga Bag, Noro Kuyeon
  21. Black and white striped scarf in Debbie Bliss alpaca silk
  22. Cardigan, "Eloise" in Noro Blosson, #5 color
  23. Garter stitch scarf in leftover Mountain colors yarn
  24. Cable scarf, pink
  25. Ribbed scarf
  26. Sophisticated fisherman's scarf, black
  27. Matching mittens, Debbie Bliss cashmerino aran black
  28. Wave scarf, Anny Blatt angora super and Victoria, pinks/blues/beige
  29. Scarf, double wrap stitch in blues and black
  30. Fuzzy scarf, Eros and something fuzzy, black and gold
  31. Bow tie scarf, Mountain Colors, rust
  32. Man's aran sweater, Rowan Polar, rusty red

Most of these items were successes, although there were a few failues. One obvious failure is the Hunter (by Kim Hargreaves) in the Rowan Summer Tweed. I enjoyed the yarn and like the color, but the fit of the sweater was too boxy. But then I frogged it and made another sweater, so that isn't a huge failure. The bucket hat is another questionable one; the hat is much too big and the cotton yarn doesn't have enough body for the hat. That has sunk to the bottom of the yarn stash bin, awaiting its final disposition (should I pull it apart or wash it in hot water to try to shrink the hat?).

On the positive side, I love my Eloise sweater out of Noro Blossom and I wear it more than anything else I have made. The baby blanket with intarsia lambs (several white lambs and one black lamb) was a big hit with the recipient. My husband really likes his new aran sweater out of Rowan Polar, and it was fun to make, other than it was so BIG compared to my own sweaters!

Projects in progress for 2005

Right now I have two projects on the needles:

  1. Wave and shell shawl in Dune. I have been working on this for a few months when I can't think of anything else to do. I alternatively love the yarn colors, and then I decide the colors are ugly. But it is a nice project to just pick up and knit some on when I don't have anything else to do.
  2. Irishnaan sweater for me. This is a detailed, complex pattern by Alice Starmore. I think it is really quite beautiful, but I have only done about 5 inches on the back.

I have yarn available for several more projects and am periodically helping Kendall with her scarf projects. Still I like to be working on at least three things at once so I will probably cast on another one soon. Once its on the needles I will record progress.
