Wrap up of 2005

I’ve knitted for over a year now! That means I’ve learned a lot this year. Even though all my finished objects are linked on the sidebar, I feel that I need to do a post about what I’ve made and what I’ve learned. Let’s see.

Number of projects: I have NO idea. Probably at least 30.
Number of projects I actually finished: 22.
Number of projects that were for me: 4.

Projects in chronological order and what I learned from them:
1. The Alien scarf. For Anna. How to knit and purl and tell the difference.
2. The Star & Geek wristwarmers. For Anna and Erik. How to do intarsia. How to do ribbing.
3. The God awful potholders. For my grandparents. Nothing new.
4. The Keyhole scarf. For my grandma. 1×1 ribbing and how much I hate it.
5. The Take a nap scarf. For Aaron. How to make stripes.
