You guys…it’s that time of year where I look back at my year of knitting in total. 2017 was a really good year knitting wise (you can read 2016’s year in review too). Politics wise…well that sucked. Life wise…pretty darn great. I’m heading into 2018 with big personal and professional plans for myself and the hopes for some really positive changes in my life. This year is about focusing more on joy and doing what makes me happy. Life is just too short to be miserable. And of course my hope is always for more knitting. So let’s talk about what I was able to accomplish in 2017.
This year by the numbers: 61 finished objects overall
- Sweaters: 27 (that includes short sleeve and long sleeve adult sized garments)
- Shawls/Cowls/Scarves: 4
- Dog Sweaters: 5
- Baby Clothes (sweaters and dresses): 7
- Toys: 4
- Hats: 7
- Vests: 1
- Ties: 1
- Baby Blankets: 2
- Tiny Dog Cowl: 1
- Baby Crown: 1
- Baby Socks: 1
This year I was selfish and knit more for myself than I have in years past but there were still a lot of things I gave away. And in all honesty I just make what I feel like making instead of making things I feel obligated to or feel pressured into – that takes the joy out of something I love doing so much. And throughout the year I’ve blogged and shared it all with all of you. I read and try to respond to each and every comment, email and Instagram message/comment. You guys excite me, inspire me and are such great resources for so many things knitting related and even just life stuff. So thank you for reading and sharing in my joy. Here’s to all of us getting to knit a lot more in 2018. And keep reading to get links to every monthly recap of what I made this year.
