2015 knitting goals

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
a few weeks back, I shared my 2014 knitting recap. Today, I'm turning my thought bubbles into a post!
 

First, I must define: KNITTING means to me: happy, dreamy, fulfilling. This year, and always, I want to: CREATE. INSPIRE. SHARE.

 

 

My overall goals: learning, designing, podcasting, teaching.

I want to be part of the knitting community by listening to/watching podcasts, attending events, and participating in KALs. do test knits/sample/tech edit knits as time allows.

 

Specific project/stash goals:

  • sweaters (tops) should fit well, I should love the yarn, and knit with quality patterns.
  • socks with fish lip kiss heels, using slightly heavier yarn with nylon or socks that rock.
  • accessories: shawls that I really love, cowls, hats. always have a conversation knit on the needles!
  • stash: knit from stash (including handspun). spin my fiber! only buy awesome yarn! destash. reclaim yarn.
  • patterns: techniques to develop: fair isle and brioche. read my knitting ebooks, emags, and books. take craftsy classes. knit patterns from my library.
  • Kristine's style: well fitting. modern regency. items to wear with dresses. geeky accessories are fair game!

2014 knitting recap

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I am really proud of my knitting last year. I took on new challenges for techniques. I knit with yarn I had deemed "too precious to knit yet". And my purchases stayed on target with what I was wanting to knit, for the most part.

 

some stats and details for last year's knitting adventures:

  • yardage knit in finished projects: 25,349 in 43 projects + yardage of several samples not tracked.
  • yards added to stash: 20,634, with 5,678 of that knit within year (which means almost 20k from finished project yardage was from old stash!)
  • I knit with notable stash as old as from Oregon Flock and Fiber 2008, a Knit Picks warehouse sale from 2009, the second Sock Summit in 2011, my handspun from Tour de Fleece in 2011, among others.
  • types of projects: NINE tops (over 10k of yardage was in that category). 15 shawls, 7 pairs of socks. 4 kid/baby items, 4 hats, 5 cowls, and 4 others which included a blanket. Among those counts were samples and test items, as well as prototypes for my own designs, with a couple of gifts and commissioned items.
2014 tops, in newest to oldest order... Dec: Regency, Nov: CustomFit Alta, Oct: Rhinebeck, Sept: Hitofude, Aug: Beekeeper, Jun: Handspun, Apr: Laneway, Mar: Lovegood, Feb: Halele'a
 

 

  • I learned a new favorite heel (Fish Lips Kiss Heel). I knit fair isle. There was much striping, to use stash and because I love stripes. I did my first real seamed sweater and used the CustomFit system.

  • I spent time with my niece in her knitting most months of the year. And I taught my first class in public, two sessions of it!
  • I attended the Rose City Yarn Crawl, Zombie Knitpocalypse, and Rhinebeck. I participated in event KALs for each of those, the Ravellenics games, Tour de Fleece, and bunches of podcast KALs too. I participated in the knitting community more, with conversations on podcast forums and Instagram (@kdlb).
  • I re-started my podcast and found a new format in video that fits my bubbly self. Episodes 26-41 came out between mid-September and the end of the year.
  • I found that I love having a pair of socks, an accessory like a shawl, and a garment on the needles. And when I keep conversation knits at hand, I get accessories done while traveling, worshipping, and playing board games.
  • knitting makes me very happy!

... and that's the story :)
