2017 Knits and Spins
Each year I like to do a little retrospective on the year’s knits and spins. I actually felt like I was a little less productive this year. I don’t know if it’s because I knit bigger projects, or just didn’t move as fast. I do know that my spinning mojo took a hit towards the latter half of the year and I didn’t get through as much as I usually do.
This year’s tally looks like this:
- Hats: 27 (including baby hats)
- Adult Socks: 11 pairs
- Washcloths: 7
- Kids’ Socks: 4 pairs
- Kids’ Sweaters: 6
- Adult Sweaters: 2
- Slippers: 3 pairs
- Cowls: 6
- Baby Blankets: 1
- Shawls: 4
- Mittens/Mitts: 4 pairs
- Miscellaneous: 3
I’ve added my favorite nine below:
My goal for the past several years has been to spin 52 – 4 ounce bumps of fiber for a total of 13 lbs of fiber a year (basically one bump a week). In the last several years I have made this goal, and in many cases exceeded it. This year I came in just shy at 12.6 lbs.
These are a few of my favorite spins:
Stay tuned until next week when I’ll share some of my crafting goals for 2018!
