Finished a thing! (Sort of)

Poor planning: I grabbed a to-go project that only had 20 minutes of knitting left on it for a 30 minute wait time. So now I'm instagramming. But some daughter tube socks are done now! (Except for grafting the toe. And weaving in the ends. And logging it in Ravelry. And taking a finished product picture. But yeah, it's done 😂)

(Almost) Year’s End

Inspired by @wrappedinwool post, I made a #makenine2018 collage. All items in my queue. I thought this was a challenging list but I have yarn for all but the last two sweaters. Even though I have yarn for the first two garments, I really 💗 the Fade Cardi and the Jelly Roll sweater and might attempt them first, if I can afford that much yarn 😅

To list the patterns starting top left and reading down like a paragraph:

I did an audit of finished products and made 24 things this year (if I don't finish anything else in the next few days). My FOs are steadily declining- 32 in 2016, 34 in 2015, and 40 in 2014. But I think the quality is improving. Maybe. Definitely more knits and less crochet which is faster.

Here's the break down of finished items each year: 


1 adult garment (Long bolero)

1 shawl

2 child or baby sweaters

3 child or baby vests

7 socks (5 ankle, 2 kid)

4 hats

5 edged baby blankets


3 adult sweaters

1 blanket

4 shawls

5 child or baby sweaters

1 cowl

2 socks (1 ankle)

6 hats

8 edged baby blankets

2 sets of ornaments


1 blanket

4 shawls

6 child or baby sweaters

1 scarf

6 socks (3 ankle, 2 child)

4 child leg warmers

8 hats

3 edged baby blankets

I set baby sandals

2014 (40)

1 adult sweater

5 child sweaters or dresses

2 scarves

2 socks (1 adult, 1 baby)

4 child leg warmers

14 hats

7 edged baby blankets

5 flowers or toys

One can tell from the number of edged baby blankets how many friends of mine had children each year 😂

Two socks in a day!

#100daysofmaking: I finished two pairs of tube socks for Emma today from leftover yarn of socks I made for myself - Zauberball and Nomadic Yarns Molly Weasley. I was almost done with both so just had a tiny left to finish both pairs. I was afraid the Zauberball pair was going to be too narrow but they fit well. The Molly socks are too loose but I knew that as I was knitting them and just am hoping that's room to grow.
