In January, my iPod mini turned into a TARDIS:
In February I made three hats, two as gifts and the last one for myself.
The first one is a pattern adapted from one of my mum's sweaters:
The second one is my own design, pattern can be found in this journal:
The last one is also my own design, but I didn't write down the pattern:
In March it was time for my youngest nephew's baptism present. I found the pattern on garnstudio.com.
In April, I made my first pair of Rose's Wrist Warmers, from a pattern I found on ravelry.com. I love this pattern to bits and have made five pairs so far, and I'm planning on making lots more in the future!
Still in April, I made this set for a friend's baby. It's the same pattern as the one for my nephew, just a smaller size:
In May I decided to knit a sweater for my oldest nephew (4 years), but not using any pattern at all, just making it up as I went. Obviously, this wasn't the great idea I first thought it to be and I had to frog it a couple of times before I got the measurements right. I finished this sweater in June, when there was a heat wave and a nightmare to work with wool. But the finished sweater (and its matching trousers, see further down) fits perfect now; it's much more fitted than what you find in kids' patterns, which was what I was going for. In short: Big success!
In between the bigger projects all through this year I've busied myself with more of Rose's wrist warmers:
Two black pairs, cos I had to have a pair myself. :)
I can't really remember when I finished this soul warmer, it got lost in all the other projects and it almost got lost forever when I moved house.
It's very warm and cozy and the pattern isn't as hard as it may look. I found it in an old magazine. Somehow I wasn't able to get a good picture of it.
In September/October I made four Adipose plushies, for my fellow Whovians. I made the pattern myself, but I can't share it.
Also in September/October, I made this for a friend's little girl. It's in size 4 years, and I found the pattern on garnstudio.com.
The little hat was part of the pattern, though I did make some minor changes:
These trouses weren't completely finished until November, because I wanted to try them on the recipient before I weaved in all the ends. Again I had to frog it a couple of times to get the right size, but it was worth it. Yarn is same colour as the navy sweater above.
In November I also finished two sets of scarfs and wrist warmers; the scarf I found on Ravelry.com, the wrist warmers I designed myself (pattern can be found on this journal):
In December, I made this shawl and wrist warmers set for a friend. The shawl I found on Ravelry.com while the wrist warmers I just made up as I went:
And finally, I started on a new sweater for my nephew, but it's not finished yet so I don't have any pics.
PHEW! That's a lot of knitting, right there!
