Year of Projects: Unita Cabin 02



Knitting on the Road: Canada • Canal du Midi • Conwy • Dalarna • Denmark • Friday Harbor • Hiiumaa • Huron Mountain • New England • The Road to Oslo • Santa Fe • Spey Valley • Christmas in Tallinn • Traveler's Stockings • Uinta Cabin • Unst • Whitby

After a week of on-and-off attention, my first Uinta Cabin sock is finished and the second is at the heel flap. Usually I motor through colourwork patterns quickly because I can't wait to see one pattern develop, then the next, and so on. This one's no different. Add to that the fact that I'm knitting the leg on a larger needles than usual and it's full speed ahead!

Chances are the pair will be done in the next few days and with that I come to the end of my year of projects. Since July 2011 I've knit every pattern in the book Knitting on the Road with one exception - I skipped over Traveler's Stockings as I had already knit them in the summer of 2010. For next week's post I'm planning an end of year wrap up, and for the last Sunday in June I'll preview my next Year of Projects. Yes, after the great experience that was Year One, I'm definitely in for Year Two!

I have so much respect for people who can succeed in a year of projects, especially because I'm not sure I could stay on track for that long. So, congrats in advance! I cannot wait to see what your next challenge year will be like.

I think these are the prettiest of all. You saved the best for last.

Can't wait to see what's up for year two!

Your an inspiration! Clever you for setting a goal and achieving it!

Love the little houses in ths pattern, looks pretty complicated!

Look forward to your wrap up, can you wear all the socks in one post, like a cat walk?

Have a good week!

Well Done this year! Your sock knitting is inspiring me to give a pair a try next year. I think this pair is my favorite of the year.

these are beautiful, i adore colorwork, (probably because I'm so bad at it.)

Kepanie said...

That looks so spectacular! What advice do you have for knitting colorwork works?

Your socks look awesome, I'm soooooooo envious. Congrats also on your list. Like your idea of a wrap up and a preview. I need to get my brain in gear.

I love how this pair is turning out! I'm so impressed that you managed to work your way through a whole book - my list was an evolving thing from the start, lol.
