November 2018 FO’s

It’s December! And after this week of finals I’ve got winter break until January. I’m so excited to have a bit of time to prep for the new year and to be lazy and knit and catch up on reading.

But let’s talk about what I was able to accomplish in November, shall we? It was a pretty productive month!

I honestly can’t believe that 2018 is almost over! What were you able to finish in November?

May 2018 Finished Objects

May is coming to a close and I thought I’d do my May round-up a day early. I knit a little and a lot.
May’s FO’s
Here’s what I was able to accomplish in the month of May:

  • I’ve got my matching Durumi tees for me and the Bean. I really do love how this color combo came out. And how perfectly Beanie’s tiny tee came out too.
  • My test knit for Tin Can Knits. It’s still under embargo so I can’t share the finished object photos (they’re really good), but look at how pretty this Miss Babs Yowza colorway came out!
  • And finally my Dotted Rays shawl. I love this thing. It’s huge and the yarn is squishy and it’s keeping me warm in my freezing office.

A small collection of pieces but all worth the time and the yarn. And now I’ve got a metallic pink Togue Pond tank on my needles and I’m thinking of starting up an Askews Me Shawl as a gift for a friend.  What were you able to finish this month? What are you working on next?

Year in Review: 2017

2017 Year in Review
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.
