Normally this space is reserved for WIP Wednesday, but I haven’t had a chance to photograph where I am in the …three projects I’m working on. So a quick blurb: Rosemary Cardigan is back on track, really just have to knit a couple more rows to finish the back. I’m feeling frighteningly good about this (“frighteningly” because I get nervous when I feel confident about a thing I can’t match to a person’s real-life body). I’ve started my Plum Rondo, having finished one sleeve. And I cast on for another project for a swap partner last night—planning to take the other Rondo sleeve and this secret project on a trip this weekend.
That’s my progress in 2014 so far. Let’s take a look at the year that was 2013, in pictures of knitting!
I finished six sweaters for me in 2013.
I knit some things for wee people: two cardigans, a crochet blanket, and this adorable jumper that doesn’t have a proper photo yet (I’ve been promised one by the mother, though the baby in question isn’t intended to arrive until the end of this month).
All told, I finished 37 projects in 2013. Approximate calculations tell me that I knit more than 16,000 yards of yarn this year (based on projects that I marked as finished after January 1, 2013). That’s about 7,000 yards short of the marathon’s worth of yarn goal that I arbitrarily assign myself. Unfortunately there was also a lot of yarn coming in over the year, so my net total is not quite as impressive, but THIS YEAR! This year will be filthy with yarn leaving my house. Filthy.
How did you do in 2013?
