Audra Daughtry

My most satisfying project by far this year has been the Wee Baby Blocks blanket knit for a family friend!

Diana Lichvarik

Although I enjoy knitting socks, the most satisfying item for me has been the Shetland triangle shawl. Made with sock yarn, it is delightful to make and wear.

I haven't done a lot of knitting this year because of spinal surgery in January, but I did manage to knit two Side to Side Shrugs from the Craftsy Website. Yarn is Cascade Casablanca and have one more to knit. They are too cute for words! Three teen granddaughters Christmas presents - I start early. I hope to be back on my knitting machines shortly after release from surgeon end of June.

Judy Drew

My favorite project this year is the Honest Woodsman Pullover from Enchanted Knits because I am learning many new techniques. I also have knit many pairs of socks for my husband and friends.

Tracy Alexander

I made a few knitting goals this year. One goal was to knit a shawl with an applied edge and I accomplished that goal by knitting Pipers Journey.

Miriam Remington

The most satisfying thing I have knitted this year was some fingerless mitts for my mother. If I remember right they are called the ruffled fingerless mitts, not sure though because the tablet I had them saved on died and I haven't refound the pattern yet.


I finished my first pair of socks


I love to knit socks, and they are all satisfying!! This yarn would look great in socks.


Please! My most satisfying project will be anything I can finish, OOO, that is beautiful yarn!!!!!!

Karen Potter

Socks, using 3 different colorway and blending them into crazy blender socks.


I would have to say that my most satisfying project so far this year would be my Coachella tank top. It was a really fun knit and fits beautifully.

Nathanne Verner

I discovered Martina Behm shawls, and I have been cranking out several Trillion scarves as gifts, and as a beautiful way to use my handpainted yarn. Her design creates a work of art with the hand painted yarn. Even the most problematical yarn looks gorgeous in her patterns. So this is my most gratifying project this year.

Sherri Hendricks

I've made a lot of socks. I love knitting socks and this yarn would make a great pair of socks!

RuthAnn Cromwell

I still love the shawls I have made this year and especially participating in 2 KALS. I made Follow Your Arrow 2 with Ysolda and Exploration Station with Stephen West. I actually tackled the Brioche Stitch will probably never do it again but I did it.


It took me four months to do, but I am super happy with my Welsh Boomerang Shawl :-)
I haven't been able to take pics yet of the FO... Waiting for some sunshine 😄


I made a delightful pair of socks with some yarn I got from Etsy. It is self-patterning and knits up like a #2 pencil.


I love the way these socks turned out:

They're probably my most satisfactory project of the year, this far!


My most satisfying project this year would have to be the sweater I am finishing. It's my first fingering weight sweater and I can hardly wait to be done with it so I can wear it!


I just finished a sweater in fingering weight yarn. Learned to do a cable neck band.


I'd have to say Scrap Happy.

the KAL was a lot of fun and I used up some scraps that were laying around.


The most satisfying project I've knit this year isn't actually quite finished, but it's my Gray Skies and Rainbows cowl - a simple striped cowl with gray as the base color and rainbow stripes.


My most satisfying project I have finished so far this year is a pair of cashmerino socks. They are so soft and squishy, almost knee high. I love my so


The Multnomah Shawl


My favorite knitted FO was a firebird shawl. It was my first beaded project.


I went deep into my stash to knit Nurmilintu - as the winter ended up being really long, having another lovely scarf / shawl was fantastic!

Ashley W

Definitely my Lifesavers sweater!


Fish Lips Kiss Heel socks! My socks now fit great.


Pinwheel baby, easy, but impressive looking when completed!


The most satisfying project I have made this year was a small blanket for my newborn son.

It was a hard won project as I was terribly ill with Hyperemesis Gravidarium the entire pregnancy but seeing him wrapped up in handmade just makes my heart swell.


I am knitting a wedding shawl for my son's fiance. Pattern by Wendy Johnson. So lovely.


My afterthought heel socks! They fit so wonderfully and I love how they look, so it was very satisfying!


After knitting only socks, I really wanted to break out and start something else but was too scared to buy the yarn not knowing if I would actually finish the garment and have it wearable. So with the help of a Knit Your Own Project class, I knit the vest pattern Deb by Anrea Knight- Bowman. I was so pleased to have finished it and I will actually wear it.


Super easy-the baby cardigan I made for my granddaughter-purple and teal striping.


It's hard to pick between a Citron I knit out of Habu bamboo yarn and a pair of Geek Socks (also a knitty pattern!) I knit in Knitpicks Felici, which has sadly been discontinued. I love self-striping yarn!


My favorite project this year is my handspun Quicksilver shawl. I tweaked the pattern just a bit so I could use every inch of my handspun.


That would be my Nuvem, absolutely love it. (etain on Ravelry)


The most satisfying project I've knit this year has been socks, plain ones, from a lavender and green Regia yarn. Sorry--I'm on the Amtrak from Gallup to ABQ and don't have access to my pattern or yarn number.

Amber L

I knit my first sweater. That was by far my most satisfying knit!

Laura Vogl

I knit a shawl called the "Linda Scarf" that was an original pattern for the owner of my LYS. It was beautiful and I loved it so much I'm making one in cotton for summer. It's not online to link.

Ellen Stout

My most satisfying knit this year has been socks for my daughter who is a nun living in France!


Comments have been fun to read! My favorite knit
would be the Shaelyn shawl in dark green mad tosh
light. Fun to knot and wear. LynnIL rav

Tami C.

I learned to knit just a little over a year ago. All of my protects have been satisfying because I learned so much with each one,but I would have to say my Central Park Hoodie was the most satisfying. It will be something I will wear a lot, and I learned what a difference really great yarn can make both in the end project and in the whole knitting experience.

Sherri Bero

I would love to make some socks for my daughters and myself. Gorgeous!

Nancy M

Has to be the Kira K Essential Cardigan that I made for myself.


I knit the Shaldon Poncho after seeing it on a sales person at Stitches West this year. I am totally addicted to sock yarn and loved making this poncho and wearing it!

Ginny Ray

Ooooh pick me! pick me!

My happiest project this year was a Kimono - like a big sweater without buttons. I took it on a trip where there was surprise ice and snow and I was as toasty as a bug!

Margie S in Wyoming OH

My most satisfying project this year is the Striped Baby Blanket I am working on for our new grandson.


I've been in a baby sweater frenzy the last year. Seems that all my daughters' friends are having babies. I love making them because they take so time, but it means so much to the mothers to have something handmade. I think this yarn would make a really cute sweater for a tiny one.

Harmony G.

I'd have to say my first Color Affection shawl! First time carrying yarn and itvwas way easier than I anticipated. Love it!


I just finished knitting the Holden Shawlette and it turned out so beautiful, I want to knit another one. I used Petal Shower, Dream in Color yarn and my cousin is going to love it, I'm sure.

Happy Anniversary Simply Sock Yarn!


Hermoine's everyday socks!

shirley Macemon

Socks for my friend undergoing chemo

Rebecca Briggs

I needed to do an infinity scarf, and could not find a pattern I liked. So, I took a deep breath .... and designed my own! It was a really cool lace pattern that I took from one of the Barbara Walker books, and it turned out great! Everyone who saw it thought it was awesome, and wondered where I got the pattern, Now, I just need to put the pattern on Ravelry.,,


My Minni baby sweater that I made for a friend. It turned out so cute and I found the pattern really kept me on my toes :-)


My most satisfying project this year has been my Lady Sunnyside cardigan designed ny Tanis Gray. I knit it out of Madelinetosh and is my best fitting sweater to date.

Becky Hill

Definitely the Yachats socks I made with yarn I dyed myself in the crockpot! my daughter sent me the undead yarn for Christmas! They are so pretty I hate to wear them with shoes!

Michelle N. McCrillis

The Emily's Firmament Shawl from Webs in merino/tencel is my project this year and I'm almost done. I'm up to the interminable edging. This is going to be a shower gift to my daughter's best friend for her wedding.

Deb Adams

My favorite project this year has been these "spidey" mittens with a matching hat that I knit for a little boy whose dad died suddenly.

Mary Henderson

I made a Minion Hat for my 7 year old Grandson for his Birthday and HE LIKED IT. The hat was the hit of his Birthday Party. Just goes to show how old (I'm 71) or how young (he's 7) that knitting can truly bridge the gap in age. GO GRANDMA!
I think if I win this this skein it will be for his birthday next year,

Thank you...

Martha Donley

Finishing my Nora Sweater from interweave knits has been my most satisfying knit. It took 3 tries to get the seams to my satisfaction, but I love it.


My favorite knit this year was a small project: Saartje's booties for a friend's new baby! Super cute booties, and an even cuter baby :)


I would make a baby surprise surplice and matching hat.


Kaika Sox KAL with Knit Pearl Hunter. Learning to love socks.

Captain Awesome

My most satisfying knit of 2015 has been my Regia 8-ply socks. A quick knit and so comfy it almost makes me wish for fall weather so I can wear them again. ALMOST :)


A pair of Fawke's Socks using Socks that Rock lightweight in Jewel of the Nile. Love them!

Yvonne Mimms

I made a pair of toe-up patterned socks.I usually do plain top down.
