What I knit in 2016

Lunna Voe Shawl pattern by Ysolda

Each year, I like to review my Ravelry notebook projects to figure out what I knit in the past year. Hint: this is easier to do when you tag each project with the year tag “2016”, and so on. This past year, Ravelry tells me that I knit 12,640 yards of yarn, down from 17,340 yards in 2016, which is closer to my annual average. There was a self-described “knitting trough” in the middle part of the year. I think that is in part to knitting fewer sweaters and shawls this past year. I’m not one to make things a competition, so it is what it is. I did do a fair amount of both charity and gift knitting, and this year, I think I’d like to make myself some sweaters, including one that I restarted over the holidays.

Socks –  12 pairs, most of them as gifts.

Shawls – 5, a couple as presents, but 3 for me. This is down from 9 last year!

Hats – 5, mostly presents

Necklaces – 11 beaded ones, all gifts and charity knitting

Knitted Knockers – about 50, but I didn’t count. I have a bunch more that will be donated soon. Check out the Knitted Knockers website.

Sweaters – 2. Wow, only two this year, one for my cousin, and one for me. As noted above, this needs to be rectified in this coming year.

Fingerless mittens – 1

Miscellaneous – 1 pair boot toppers, 1 dishcloth, 1 cowl, a few kitty fish toys

The knitting for the new year is productive already – I’ll post in a  day or two what’s been worked on at Casa del Revknits!

That lace is gorgeous!

Do you know if there is a charity for the refugees stranded in Europe, particularly on those Greek islands? They are dealing with freezing cold, snow, and filth in those camps. It’s heart breaking. I’m pretty sure we first connected through A4A, so I wonder if you know of a similar organization getting things to people in this new crisis, too.
