So my goal on Raverly was to knit 15 projects this year, which was wildly optimistic, especially when you consider that last year I only finished 6 projects. In 2018, I will finish the year with 8 completed projects and a pair of socks on the needles.
Looking back, here is what I finished in 2018:
- Shark Attack Lap Blanket
- Birthday Socks
- Stone Layers Shawl
- Downtown Clutch
- Roundabout Socks
- Vanilla Latte Socks
- Grace Clutch
- Puppy Love
All in all, the list isn’t too disappointing. I’m a bit torn on what my favorite project of the year would be. The Shark Attack blanket turned out really cute, and kiddo loved it. The Grace clutch was a pain to knit, but turned out so nice that I’m planning on making a second one (for me this time) next year. But I think if I absolutely had to pick one, I would go with the Stone Layers Shawl. I’m really happy with how it turned out, and I’ve gotten quite a bit of use from it.
I also set some Fiber Resolutions for myself for 2018. While I didn’t quite see the massive stash reduction I was hoping for, I did pretty well with not buying much more yarn. I needed some specific yarn for the Grace Clutch, and made a couple of trips to some yarn stores, but in comparison with some years, I didn’t do to terribly at all. I increased productivity by a couple of projects, but would have liked to finish more. Interestingly enough, I didn’t even cast on for the two projects that I mentioned wanting to complete in 2018, the Gramps Cardigan and the Persian Dreams Afghan. I still haven’t learned to weave. I made some small strides toward organizing my yarn, but that still needs more work too. Oh, well, I guess there is always next year!
