When I was thinking about this list, I was pretty sure I knew what to expect. Last year, I just broke down what I knit into categories, and I meant to do that again this year, but then Andi did her year in review with photos and I thought that would be a fun way to do it (and much more manageable than a big collage of everything together, which Ravelry basically does for me). So, here’s what I knit, month by month, in 2013.
I have to say, I was pretty surprised by the way my projects were spread out. I’ve organized everything by month finished (rather than month started or worked on), so in the months where I only finished one thing I was generally knitting other things at the same time. But still, it’s interesting to see everything spread out like this.
This year I finished 30 projects:
Socks – 14 pairs (5 gifted)
Garments – 3 (2 cardigans, 1 tank top)
Baby things – 3 (2 cardigans, 1 hat)
Mittens/gloves – 4 pairs
Hats – 3
Shawls/Cowls – 3
For fun, I thought I’d break things down by colour too, since I’m pretty sure I knit with the same colours over and over again (blue and green, I’m looking at you). In the case of variegated yarn, I just slotted the project by the dominant colour.
Blue – 7
Green – 5
Purple – 4
Red – 3
Striped (no dominant colour) – 3
Yellow – 2
Grey – 2
Brown – 2
Orange – 1
Pink – 1
I didn’t break things down by colour last year, but it will be interesting to see if the blue/green bias holds this year. On my (active) needles right now, I have a pink-ish/red sock and a green/pink baby sweater, so for now at least, I’m turning over a new colour leaf.
