Wrapping up 2019, Welcoming 2020


It's a new year and a brand new decade! Here are my highlights from the knitting year 2019.



In 2019, I completed 24 projects and knitted 13.3 kilometers (over 14,500 yards) of yarn. My biggest project in terms of yardage was Tweed Is Still the New Black with 1,338 m or 1,463 yd. The smallest knit was Hibernia Headband which took only 97 m (107 yd).


The project that took me the longest to finish was my Autumn in Mirkwood cardigan with 317 days. Granted, I'd already started it in fall 2018! The quickest project was Hibernia Mitts which took me just 3 days to complete.



Want to know how many meters or yards you knit in 2019? It's easy to do this on Ravelry. Go to your projects, click Filter your projects... on top, click Year completed, and choose 2019. Scroll to the bottom of the page and Ravelry calculates the total yardage automatically for you. Just like magic!



In 2019, I released 20 new knitting patterns: 5 shawls, 4 garments, 2 pairs of socks, and 9 small accessories. I'm also working on some secret projects slated to come out in 2020. 🤫



The Most Knitted title goes to the 2019 mystery shawl pattern, Spring It On! with 106 projects on Ravelry. Bronze Age wins the Most Hearts contest by a landslide with 961 on Ravelry. It also happens to be my personal favorite of the patterns I designed this year.



In 2019, I wrote 53 new blog posts. The most-read and the most-shared blog post was the tutorial for catching long floats in colorwork on the next round.


Let's take a brief look into 2020. Again this year I asked my mailing list members what kinds of designs they'd like to see in the upcoming year. This time it's a very close race between cardigans and shawls. You're in luck because those just happen to be my favorite patterns to design!

What are your plans for 2020? Let me know in the comments below. 👇
