Along with a record-breaking 70 blogposts, I machine-knitted innumerable swatches, 10 cardigans, 1 dress, 1 afghan, 4 ponchos, 18 pairs of socks, 3 earflap hats, a crochet-look skullcap and a couple of DNFs that I never mentioned.
got off to a rocky start, airing my dirty laundry
I was in a knitting funk with no direction and a lack of inspiration. Over the months,
I whined quite a bit, threw in some nostalgia here and there for dramatic
effect and yes, I probably over-shared!
I hit my stride and began my quest for not only the ultimate long cardigan, but
the perfect pocket to go with. I knitted and blogged my way through lace,
stripes, striped lace, ribber techniques, and pockets of all sorts.
past month, I kept off the keyboard, busy with some sewing and making Christmas
socks and gifts, without sharing, because I had nothing new to add.
my crowning achievement for the year was the shortrowed decrease hack
slant edge on patch pockets – used it several times since and I love it –
yesterday, finished up another TBHoodie
on the LK and an added outside pouch pocket, using the decrease hack – so much faster
and proving it works great on mid gauge too!
you and your family all the best for health, happiness and good fortune for
2019! May all your machine knitting efforts have positive and happy results!
