My knitting adventures in 2010 could be summarized by the words first, small and repeat. This year I managed to finish my first wearable scarf, then proceeded to knit another and another. By year's end I had cast off on five scarves. This was a huge accomplishment for a previously scarf phobic knitter like myself who had an uncounted number of unfinished scarves hidden at the bottom of my knitting basket. This past year also saw the rise of small projects in my knitting bag. I have always gravitated towards sweater patterns, but I only managed to knit three garments in 2010. Most of my projects were small, quick and portable. And then there were the repeat knits. It was a year of obsessively knitting two Give a Hoot Mittens, three Color Ripple Scarves and four Botanic Hats. Never before have I knitted a pattern more than once. Repeatedly knitting these patterns was like revisiting a favorite book or snuggling under an old but well-loved blanket. So the lessons learned in 2010? Small can be good, try to overcome the (UFO) ghosts of the past, and repeating oneself is never a bad thing.
