My 2018 Make Nine Review

Thursday, January 10, 2019
I had big plans for my 2018 Make Nine to try new techniques and new garments, and while I made a lot of things in 2018, I only made 4 out of 9 items from my Make Nine List.

An Andi Satterlund Pattern: Salal
April 2018
Fate: worn
I originally intended to make the cardigan as part of an Andi Satterlund pattern knit along, but life and my day job got in the way and I ended up finishing it on my own time. I'm pleased with how it turned out and I've worn it several times.

Colorwork Mittens: Unmade but yarn acquired
In the winter of 2017 it seemed like everyone was making colorwork mittens. But when everyone else moved on to shiny new patterns, I did too.

An Andrea Mowry pattern: Fluorite socks 
November 2018
Fate: worn once
When I originally made my Make Nine I had grand ideas to make a What the Fade or Find yoru Fade Shawl. But over the Thanksgiving holiday Andrea Mowry hosted the FlouritgivingKAL and I just so happened to have the perfect yarn and the pattern already in my stash. It was meant to be.

A Stephen West Pattern: The Doodler
July 2018
Fate: made
I have long been a fan of Stephen West more vibrant patterns, but had not yet tackled one. At the beginning of 2018 Kristy Glass Knits hosted a DoodlerKAL and it was just the motivation I needed to give it a go.

Socks: multiple made
Fate: some worn, some stored
In the spring of 2018 I decided to try to knit some socks. I knit a pair of socks for my husband that are just a touch too slouchy, and some oversize Jaywalker socks which are fun to wear around the house before I perfected my sock recipe. I will definitely be knitting more socks in 2019.

Kielo Wrap Dress by Named Clothing
Unmade but fabric acquired

Coco by Tilly & the Buttons
Unmade but fabric on the way

Something Brioche
Unmade- still too afraid

A Christmas Sweater: Julgran by Andi Satterlund in progress
After knitting up all of my Christmas gift knits, I started working on my Julgran sweater at the beginning of December. I nearly finished this thing in time for Christmas, but I ran out of yarn before I could finish the second sleeve. Watch this space.

Things to consider for my 2019 Make Nine
I seemed to complete the makes that I wasn't as specific on, which gave me a bit more wiggle room to deviate some from my original ideas. I also want to be more considerate of how my makes will fit in with the garments that I already have in my closet.

Did you create a 2018 Make Nine List? If so, how many did you make on your list?
