(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 😂

Kneed knitting break...?

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.
