Unblogged Items 2023

Here are some more unblogged items that I made this year:

Item #1: Itch to Stitch Vienna Tank Top

I made another Vienna Tank top from some rayon fabric scraps. Great to wear in summer.

Item #2: All You Ever Wallet by Sew-Mad

I needed a lightweight wallet for my hiking tour last summer, so I made one.

Item #3: Susaen Sweater by Kirsten-Michele

Yarn is Drops Bella held together with Drops Kid Silk. You cannot see it in the pictures, but the pattern is also along the sides. I learned the provisional cast on.

Item #4: Itch to Stitch Santorini Tank

Tank top with interesting seamlines and a button band on one side.

Item #5: Itch to Stitch Islares Top

It’s a simple top but with a nice neckline. This has already become a wardrobe staple. The fabric is a cotton knit with spandex.

Item #6: Project bags

The big project bag is a free pattern from Amy Lowden. It has everything you need, I especially love the ring for the progress keepers. The smaller ones are some simple zipper bags. I am so happy with these makes. The big one can hold yarn and material for a sweater, and the smaller ones are perfect for gloves or socks.

Item #7: Two by Two Hat by Anne G.

First hat ever that I knitted. Fit is really good and such an easy and fast make.

Item #8: Yellow lingerie set

Again a Maya bra and Watson bikini. The fabric was a vibrant yellow but was already discolored because there was a black sock in the laundry… For this bra, I added 0.5 cm to the underarm to improve the fit.

Item #9: Stripy advent socks

I always wanted to knit some stripy advent socks and this year I finally did. The wool was a Christmas Mystery kit from NicoleCMendez (Etsy). I made both socks toe-up in parallel following the instructions from the craftsy class “Socks – two at a time”. I really liked the heel construction.

Item #10: Tablecloth

A quick and dirty tablecloth for my balcony table. I just cut the desired length and left the selvage edges unhemmed.

Item #11: Penny gloves by Petite knit

I made two pairs of Penny gloves as Christmas gifts. Now I also need to make a pair for myself.

Item #12: Cover for my Ironing board

I made a new cover for my ironing board.

  1. Wow, you’ve been busy last year, Angela! I especially like the 2×2 hat and the Christmas socks, and I’m so relieved that you don’t fret with 2 exactly same socks 😀 Have a great 2024!

      Hi Andrea, yes, it is more than I thought. This is the reason for this blog, to keep track of my makes 🙂 Oh, and I thought about making matching socks, but was too lazy in the end to wind up the yarn in a way that would work.
