2018 Recap

I completed 36 projects, according to Ravelry, including:

  • 5 shawls
  • 6 pairs of mittens and 2 pairs of mitts
  • 9 pairs of socks
  • 3 sweaters
  • 5 hats
  • 1 cowl
  • 1 pumpkin
  • 1 mug cozy
  • 1 cup
  • 1 cat
  • 1 hammer
  • 13 preemie hats for charity, not included in Ravelry total because I never bothered to make pages for them

I knit 14 things as designs but wear a few of them myself and gave one as a gift. I knit myself 2 sweaters, a shawl, and a pair of mitts. I gave away 16 things as gifts. One thing is still in limbo – for me? For someone else? And HOW DID I NOT KNIT MYSELF ANY SOCKS?

I published 15 new patterns:

#makenine2018 was very successful – 8/9 things completed, with the 9th being to work on my fleece that I’m spinning for a sweater (washing and lots of hand-carding done, some singles spun)
