Year-end recap

Finished objects this year:

10 scarves
7 hats
3 shawls (Kiri, Seraphim, Clapotis)
2 baby blankets (1 crocheted, 1 knitted)
2 tank tops (1 crocheted, 1 knitted)
1 pair of socks
2 pairs fingerless gloves
1 baby sweater

Total: 28 finished objects

WIPs still on the needles that I want to finish:

3 sweaters
2 pairs of socks
1 vest
2 scarves

Things I'd like to start on right now, but am mightily striving not to do yet because of the above list of WIPs:

2 more sweaters
2 lace shawls
1 pair of socks (at least one set needs to be done by June)
1 baby blanket (baby is due in March)

Projects that I started and then abandoned because something didn't go right:

too many to list or count!

Related fiber stuff:

Got a spinning wheel (Lendrum folding wheel)
Spun 2 oz. berry & purple BFL (dyed by Lisa Souza)
Spun 1 bobbin full of unknown silvery grey fiber (maybe merino)
Spun 1/2 bobbin of Crown Mountain superwash merino

Updated yarn inventory spreadsheet
Got on Ravelry.
Started this blog (almost forgot that one!)

Hmmm, I was feeling like I hadn't done much this year, but I guess I did okay. In addition to using up some stash yarn for many of the finished object, especially the baby blankets/sweater, and the hats and scarves, I also got rid of 4 bags of yarn that I no longer loved.

There aren't any New Year resolutions. I tend to forget them so now I don't bother. I'd just like to spend lots of time working on my projects - and get more of them actually completed.

I'd like to wish all of you a happy, healthy New Year in 2008!

Happy New Year! You seemed pretty darn productive to me!

Happy New Year!

Me, I got my Crown Mountain bump (one of them) into the family room within sight of my wheel. You're WAY ahead of me!
