Yearly Round Up!
So it is in fact the start of March– but I’m just getting around to writing my yearly crafty wrap up post.
I didn’t really meet many of my goals. My stash is bigger then when I started the year and I didn’t do as much weaving or spinning as I wanted to. That’s fine – sometimes these goals are meant to be aspirational.
2017 did consist of 24 pairs of socks!
I think my most favourite are the first pair I made this year in Stylecraft’s Head Over Heels. My Advent TryAngles Socks are a close second.
Shawls? I made a few of those too. 7 in fact.
Waiting for Rain is my fave – closely followed by Belle Filles; because it used my hand spun!
Hats! 4 of those. Now I have longer hair I feel I can wear more hats – without looking like someone who has unfortunately lost it all.
The “other” has also been a bit varied this year – 2 pairs of fingerless gloves and a pair of thrummed slippers which were all interesting knits indeed.
I also started my scrap yarn blanket and knitted 132 squares.
In 2017 I used 13,752 meters in 40 projects
2017 was 19,586 meters in 41 projects
2015 was 22,752 meters in 42 projects
2014 was 11,464 meters in 33 projects
2013 was 12,732 meters in 25 projects
I ended the year with 92944.6 meters in Stash. Eep!
Goals for 2018 are pretty simple.
Cold-ish Sheep. First aim is to get to Wonderwool at the end of April without purchasing. Between now and then I’m going to have a think about what I actually want or need. There will (most likely) be yarn – but maybe rather than yarn I should think about what equipment I have and want to upgrade.
12 pairs of socks – work down that sock yarn stash as it provides a huge chunk of my yarn. Plus I wear my hand knit socks every day.
Make at least 1 thing with yarn from Wonderwool 2017 and one thing with yarn from Yarndale 2017 – That shouldn’t be too hard!
