I've been away a bit. Between designing shows, and... well, designing shows, my November and December got crazy. Really. But things have settled a bit, so I decided to do a "Yearly wrap up" post.
I had an ultra boring meeting this morning, so I did a lot of totalling then.... fyi. :)
In 2011, I knit:
37 individual projects, including:
14 large lace projects
5 pair of mittens
and 4 other things like socks and baskets
15 projects were from books
8 from PDFs
4 from magazines
5 from free sources
and 5 of my own design
In 2011 I knit 22,918 yards of yarn, also known as 13.02 miles, and I finished a project every 9.86 days, on average.
Also in 2011, I designed 6 shows, learned to spin on my new spinning wheel, and spun a lot of yarn - two hanks of which were used in above projects.
I think 2011 was a pretty good year! I am notoriously bad a t dealing with resolutions, but I'm going to make a list again, and see how I do in 2012.
Try to spin lace weight.
Make that cool sideways sweater for myself using some handspun - Rhinebeck!
Keep adding to my crochet arsenal.
Work up the courage to wind up the gossamer yarn. Maybe even start the Shawl of Insanity.
Be better about swatching.
