I don’t usually do a year-end wrap-up. Mostly because I am a mix of too stupid and too lazy to figure out how to do a montage photo. And they’re not even called montages, but I can’t think of the word for them. Good grief. But I would like to review a few projects from the year that I am proud of.
As usual, knitting took a front seat to other crafting. I just looked up some totals on Ravelry. I finished 8 sweaters, 4 shawls, 4 hats, 4 cowls and 9 other accessory or miscellany projects. Not bad. Here are some of my favorites from the year:
My Lace Coat
Not everything was a winner this year, but on the whole I am happy with what I knit.
There was a little bit of spinning, too:
Man, when I said a little spinning, I really meant little! I only spun about a pound of fiber this year. At least I am not stockpiling fiber, so my stash isn’t getting out of hand.
I picked up the pace on my sewing. And then promptly slowed down again. I would like to pick it up more this year. I have decided that I will do one quilt a year. That is probably even ambitious considering how long I have had fabric taking up my kitchen table because I don’t like cutting. Or pressing.
My first quilt! Pieced, machine quilted and bound by me.
My wide-mouthed zipper bag. Maybe I never blogged this… I used this tutorial.
I have much more of everything on my agenda for 2014! I probably won’t set goals though, because sometimes I tend to think of my knitting projects as priorities over experiencing my life! I might be focusing on some larger scale projects this year. And of course there are the Ravellenic Games coming up!
