Happy New Year all!
I’ve knit 22 things in 2015! That’s 3 projects up from last year!
I didn’t knit as much for little ones this year, niece M is now 3 and takes a lot longer to knit for!
22 projects, that’s almost like finishing something every other week, but not.
- 7 pairs of socks (including the Baffies)
- 1 Chook Vest
- A group blanket project
- A huge crochet blanket
- A baby blanket
- only 3 Kids/baby sweaters
- 3 scarves/cowls
- 3 tops for me (2 of which were use it or lose it)
- Christmas ornaments
- 1 Winter set for Damian
Of these 22 things, 8 projects were for other people.
I’ve carried over 6 WIPs into the new year, but there was no way the Noro blanket was coming for the ride. I finished sewing in the ends on the last day of the year.
2016 is going to be a ‘Cold Sheep’ year. There will be no yarn purchasing except maybe for the Sheep and Wool Show in July. And … only if I travel overseas to a yarn haven. But there might be some de-stashing to accommodate that…
In 2015 I was lucky enough to visit Stitches West in California in February and then Tokyo in November. It’s been a fun year! There was ‘a bit’ of yarn tourism involved in visiting those places, and I hope to relive those fun memories as I knit with my souvenir yarn.
My stash count as of today is:
It is a little less than the last count, but I suspect the last count was inaccurate (the wrong column was added together).
Here’s to 2016 the year of knitting more and stashing down!
