I only finished
15 17 knitted, crocheted or sewn objects this year, and none of them sweaters!
I’m noticing that only two of them are for me (the binary cable hat and the tapestry cowl) and I can’t find one of those two (the hat). Darn. I think that’s because I knit two shawl/scarf things that ended up being for other people (lintilla and annis) even though I thought they were going to be for me. Also, I have several sweaters on the needles for myself but none of them are getting finished.
The last two items pictured never got shown off here. I made bird ornaments for my children’s teachers.
And a cute (if I must say so myself) gingerbread house ornament for a friend.
I really like they way they all turned out. I wish I had set aside more time in December for sewing ornaments. Next year! (Maybe.)
I attempted to calculate the yardage of yarn currently in my stash but my spreadsheet program and Google docs both refused to read the file that Ravelry exports. I’m going to say that’s the universe telling me that I don’t need to know. I’m actually glad because 2012 was supposed to be my year of not buying yarn except at Stitches and I know I didn’t stick to that. Also, I didn’t finish many projects and no sweaters so that means not a lot of yarn leaving. Let’s just agree that I probably have too much yarn and leave it at that.
My year was much like yours 🙂 Bought yarn outside of stitches ( and I wasn’t supposed to) , finished 17 things – including ones not started in 2012 (yeesh) and didn’t finish my felt crafts for Christmas. Maybe next year we should do a crafty day for those felt things!
One of the two things I finished for myself (the cowl) was started in 2008! Scary.
Yes, a felt sewing day is a good plan! I think we should refrain from having it include booze, though, since they all need tiny detail work. 🙂
