2016 in Review

This year, when I set up my Ravelry project pages, I tagged things with "2016" as well as my usual tags.  That way, I can enter "2016" into the search on my project index and it will pull up everything with that tag (in other words, everything I've done this year).  So, do you want to know what I did?

Here it is:
  • 8 pairs of socks
  • 6 woven scarves
  • 5 shawls
  • 4 cowls
  • 3 pullovers
  • 3 cardigans
  • 2 pairs of footie socks
  • 1 set of crocheted flower coasters
  • 1 pair of gloves
  • 1 hat
  • 1 blanket
  • 1 crocheted heart (that was supposed to be a coaster, but it was too small)
  • 1 mermaid
  • 1 seahorse
  • 1 table runner
  • 1 pincushion
  • 3 pairs of pajama pants (but only one pair is in Ravelry)
If I'm counting correctly, that's 43 projects for the year.  The only sewing projects in Ravelry are the ones for Loopy Academy, but I remember making two additional pairs of pajama pants (and I've been sleeping in them).  I didn't do a lot of sewing last year, so this is probably a pretty accurate count.

Ooops!  Wait - I also made the little Christmas owl mug rugs, so that's 44 projects for the year.

Also, I'm still working on finishing the Easy Folded Poncho.  I WILL be binding off today so that will be project number 45.  I don't know if it will be ready to blog tomorrow because it will need a blocking before it gets photos and it might not be dry.  It's the only thing I've been working on because I didn't want to start anything else new this year.  I do still have the Meditative Blanket to work on once the poncho is blocking.  Finishing that blanket is one of my goals for next year!

I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year's and I'll see you next week!

Have a lovely and healthy 2017 with lots of knitting time. I check your blog every day, you are a very talented and funny writer (and designer, will there be a Mystery Shawl again sometime?). Lots of love to you and of course to Max, Logan, Mickael and Caleb. Looking forward to reading more in 2017.

Great idea about tagging with the year. I will have to start doing that as I finish things in 2017. I usually rely on my spreadsheet where I track everything I make but would be nice to check it on Ravelry.

Happy New Year!

Wow! You are really productive. All I can say about myself is that I thought about 45 projects; very few were started and none were finished. I am hoping 2017 is a much better year for me. Happy New Year to you and your family!
