Best Nine of 2016, Part I

As the year comes to a close I thought I’d do my Best Nine of 2016 like I did last year (you can see post 1, post 2 and post 3 from last year). These were my top nine most liked posts on Instagram.

But what were my nine favorite projects that I knit this year? I knit a lot but some projects just flew off my needles and made me happier to make than others. Here are the bottom three…

Cracked Pepper Cardigan
9. Cracked Pepper Cardigan
This was meant to be a gift for my BFF Jess and somehow my gauge was completely off and I ended up with an awesome cardigan. Don’t worry, Jess got her own awesome sweater eventually so I don’t feel guilty that I love this one so much. Plus the grey and neon peach just work together to perfection. This is worn a lot.

8. Cher’s Sweater
Small hand knits + small dog = perfection in my book. I love Cher in a sweater, it makes her look like a stylin’ old lady and it tickles me so much. Now I just need to make one for Jelly.
Eden sweater
7. Eden Sweater
Going without a pattern, just notes and finally using a perfect green yarn I’ve had in my stash made this project a favorite of mine. When I went through what I knit this year a lot of it was in the green family. I realize when it’s a gorgeous green I’m happy to knit it. These two yarns were absolute color perfection.

Okay, these were numbers 9, 8 and 7…what do you think 6, 5 and 4 will be? Any guesses?

  1. Seasons greetings to you and your family!!! My guesses are 6- the black,white and pink cardigan, 5- the coordinating baby and puppy sweaters and 4- the speckled sweater

  2. I can’t even wrap my head around the volume you’ve cranked out this year … I can’t even so I’m going to just wait. I’m picking the black and white cardigan plus the Maddie and sissy’s sweaters as two of your top 3 though. Do I get a prize? LOLOL
