At the beginning of the year I like to do a year in review of what I was able to accomplish for the year. Some years have been huge in terms of what I produced (hello, 27 sweaters) and some were big for me in terms of what I was able to learn. This year I was proud of how I just kind of jumped into colorwork and two color brioche. I also grew this blog audience a lot, I think because of Mason Dixon knitting featuring me and being interviewed on the Pom Pom podcast this summer. All because of a tiny Durumi sweater for Jellybean. We also did a Tecumseh knitalong in a Ravelry group this year.
2018 was also a year of changes for me. I cut off all of my hair, left a job that became toxic, started teaching full time and turned 40. I will say the last half of my year was definitely way better. And in between all of this I knit a lot.
This year I knit 56 items! That included:
- 18 sweaters, 13 full length sleeves, 5 short sleeves
- 1 vest
- 8 dog sweaters (not all for my pups)
- 1 pair of slippers
- 12 hats
- 9 shawls and cowls
- 1 toy
- 5 baby sweaters/dresses
- 1 tie
Not too shabby if I do say so myself. If you’re interested in what I made each month just scroll down and click on the month to get to that month’s wrap-up. Thanks for joining me on this journey. What were you able to accomplish this year?
