FOs | 2017 in Review

Knitting | Work in Progress - Sun, 12/31/2017 - 11:30
Whew! This year has been a whirlwind of activity on the work-life front. Knitting and designing often took a back seat, so days and sometimes weeks passed with little or no knitting at all. 

As a result, I often focused on smaller projects like cowls, mitts and shawls, but I somehow managed to complete three lap-sized afghans as well. Here's a quick roundup of my 2017 FOs. (Just click the links to see the related project post, but some FOs are so fresh, they've not yet been featured.)


Accessories

Colsie Mirror Gradient Cowl-Scarf



Colsie Lake Gradient Mitts



Colsie Mirror Gradient Mitts



Colsie Green Gradient Mitts



Colsie Plumberry Gradient Mitts


Colsie Rose Gradient Mitts


Colsie Tonal Gradient Mitts


Grey Daze Mitts & Shawl



Kintra Nearly Neutral Cowl-Scarf



Afghans

Tikkyn Flagstone



Valere Summer Rainbow




Valere Vivid Rainbow


Holidays

Christmas Trees Merry & Bright

Patterns

While the Valere Reversible Afghan was the only pattern released this year, there are several in near-final form. They'll be ready for release once they've been thoroughly tech edited.


Going Forward

In an effort to start the year with a relatively clean slate, I resisted the urge to cast on new projects (with the exception of the last-minute Christmas Trees) and chose instead to finish active WIPs. The two new cowl-scarves will be especially useful, since we're in full deep-freeze with snow on the ground and windchill temps often well below 0 degrees F.

My goals for 2018 are rather straightforward. Once again, I'll be striving to focus and finish, which means limiting myself to roughly three active projects at a time. First on the list is Herlacyn Heatwave, which is almost but not quite done (all it needs is a border). I'm also itching to cast on something new, so I'm waffling between another cowl or shawl. 




As we wrap up the old year and welcome the new one, feel free to share your 2017 accomplishments, your plans for the coming year, or a mix of both. Thank you, as always, for stopping by, sharing your comments and feedback, knitting my designs, and offering your support and encouragement.

    I am woefully behind on my blogging for 2017- I could use another month of this year just to play catch up! But oh well, such is life. I guess I’ll just have to work extra hard in January! I have lots of big things in store for Knitted Bliss in 2018, and I hope
