Happy New Year!

I hope that each of you has a wonderful 2015!  We’re starting off the year with freezing rain here.

I got my Skye Boat Shawl and my Romy Cardigan finished before the end of the year, and I’ve started some new projects for this new year.  I have started adding the year to my tags on my Ravelry projects, starting with the project I began last night, so from 2015 on, I’l be able to pull up all the projects in a single year with its tag.  Or at least I think that will work.  I need caffeine.
Here is the finished Skye Boat Shawl.  I could have gone a little bigger, but I was afraid of running out of yarn on the final border if I kept going.  I think I have enough to make a small pair of matching mitts.  The shawl blocked out at 78 inches across the top edge and 28 inches from the top to the point, so it’s a nice, big, snuggly shawl and I’ve been getting a lot of wear out of it already.  Here is the project page if you want more details.

I finished the knitting on my Romy Cardigan, but I decided to block it before adding buttons.  It should be dry by now, so I’ll be sewing on the buttons later today and will show it tomorrow!

Adding the year as a tag to your project is a great way to organize projects. You can even use the "organize" tab to put in a tab for each year, and see all of your projects on a single page for each year. At the bottom of the page it will show you how many yards you knit for all the projects on that page. I think it's fun to see which years were more productive - or less. But then, I'm kind of a geek that way.

I was going to tell you all the stuff Jardee said, so she is not alone in her geekness. :)

The year tag is a clever idea, and Jardee's yards knit on a year project tab...holy cow I'm totally starting this this year!

So, how will you tag an item that you start in one year and finish in another? The year it was first put into Ravelry or the year you finished it? Or do you have WIPs in Ravelry?
