It’s been a year now since my first finished object on Ravelry, and I’ve compiled some facts and highlights.

The very first project completed was a set of guest towels, followed by:

  • 48 pairs of socks
  • 2 pairs of slippers
  • a felted accessory pouch
  • a crochet curtain for the bathroom
  • a lace table cloth
  • 2 shawls (Multnomah by Kate Flagg and Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark)
  • a capelet
  • a sweater
  • a fair isle cardigan (Sirdal by Dale of Norway)
  • 2 hats
  • 1 pair of fingerless mitts

Other significant facts:

  • I currently have only one WIP (work in progress), the Prairie Rose Lace Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark
  • I will most likely cast on the Tempest cardigan by Ann Weaver, the 2010 Lace KALendar by Carmen Oliveras, and some socks in the next couple of days.
  • I had 7 UFOs (unfinished objects) when I joined Ravelry. 3 of them are done, and I’ve added another 2.
  • I finished 3 projects for the 2010 ravelympics, teamknitmore and teammanicpurl
  • I learned to graft a sock toe, how to do a short-row heel, magic loop and 2-at-a-time socks, toe-up sock construction
  • I discovered knitting on the Internet and knitalongs
  • I listened to a lot of knitting podcasts
  • I finished my first big lace project
  • I got myself sock blockers:
