It’s that time of year when everyone looks back at what’s happened over the last year. Well, who am I to buck a trend? Here’s a look back at Kat’s Crafty 2017.
January saw the end of a six-year run of Iron Craft Challenges. We could so any craft we wanted and I chose to etch some glasses.

Of course, there was also the January mitten KAL. This year’s mittens were called Under the Sea. I entered them in the Minnesota State Fair and they took second place!

I closed out the month with a trip to Iceland where there was a little yarn purchased! Though it wasn’t all for me I promise.

Through March I worked on my mittens for the Minnesota Twins’ Opening Day.

In April I made the HB2 sweater with some of the yarn I bought in Iceland.
June and July were spent getting the Guild’s yarnbombing put together. This is our finished horse, Pronto.
I also had to whip up a 10′ x 6′ backdrop, which took me a week of pretty much nonstop knitting.
I turned some cute flannel sheets into Christmas pjs for my husband and I in December.
And I started another yarnbombing project. This time I am knitting a five foot tall cozy for a lamppost in St. Paul as part of Saint Paul Cozy.
Wow, looking at it all like this, I’m really quite proud of all I’ve finished this year! I’m looking forward to knitting off 2018 with a new mitten KAL, Bloomin’ Happy Mittens. Have a great holiday everyone!
