Katie and I talk about this on the podcast this week, and I thought I’d write a little here, too. 2016 was a great year for knitting for me. How about you?
I like that Ravelry lets us organize our projects. If you tag your projects you can have Ravelry automatically sort things into groups. I tag a number of things, but only have tabs on my project pages for years. Here’s a link to my 2016 page.
I tallied up some numbers:
- I knit about 8,800 meters (which is down from previous years)
- I bought 27,000 meters (which is…up. Wow. I had fun shopping this year! I travelled 3 times and bought yarn like it lights me up with inspiration – hang on, it actually does that)
- The thing I knit most was blanket squares, but not counting that category it was hats – 9 for being hats and 7 for new designs
Design-wise I had my best year ever! (It was my first full year. ❤️)
- I published 15 designs! (Including my first collection – The Pomball Hats)
- 7 hats
- 4 cowls
- 1 fingerless mitten
- 3 shawls
In case you like tables, I made one. (For designs, I’m just talking designs that were published this year. It gets complicated since I designed some that aren’t out, but some that are published this year were actually worked up in 2015, so this is way easier.)
Oops. I just realized I deleted the table file before entering the number of mitred squares. I did 59 this year. Very potato-chippy! (But I’m probably still not even a quarter done.)
