2017 – A Knitter Looks Back

As 2017 draws to a close, I was inspired by several of the knitting blogs that I follow to take a look back at the projects I created throughout the year.

I knew that I didn’t get much knitting done this year, but I was still surprised to learn that I only finished 6 projects. Now, if these were six sweaters, blankets, or other large projects that I finished, that would be one thing, but the two largest projects were a cowl and a scarf. The others were a pair of socks, a hat for Kiddo, mittens for Kiddo, and a pair of fingerless gloves.

Here, in no particular order, are the finished projects from 2017 (with links to my project pages on Ravelry):

I gave up and frogged one project, the Hyperion Pullover. I’m hoping to give that top another go sometime soon. I also will end 2017 with 2 projects still on my needles, the very, very belated Birthday Socks for my mom, and the Shark Attack Blanket for Kiddo.

Even with the limited list, I still don’t know that I could pick a favorite. There are features I love in each project. I love how the cables look in the Tauremorna Mitts, the Dinosaur Hat and Mittens turned out adorable, the Clearview Cowl turned out delightfully soft and squishy and I wear it almost daily, the Speckled Space Socks turned out beautiful, and the yarn was fantastic to work with, and the colors in the Siobhan scarf are absolutely gorgeous.

I guess, if I had to pick an absolute favorite, it would be the Dinosaur Hat and Mittens, they turned out super cute and kiddo loves them!

Here’s hoping that 2018 brings more knitting time and more finished projects.
