As another knitting year has been completed at Casa del Revknits, so it’s time for the annual counting of the knitted things.
For the past couple of years, my knitting quantity has increased. In 2016, I knit 12,640 yards, in 2017 my knitting yardage was up to 15,050, and this past year, 2018, I knit 18,935 yards. That’s an increase of almost 50% over two years!
There were some surprises as I reviewed last year’s knitting. I forgot that I knit so many sweaters, 6 of them (2 for the new baby Luis) and I didn’t remember all the baby charity hats that I knit.
Of course, the knitted knockers were the most for any category – 101, then followed by hats and dishcloths. A couple of new items made it into the list – Stuffed Toys – with a couple – the Dolores Van Hoofen kit and a bunny!
The largest single item was the Baby Blanket that I knit for the new baby in the family (1,367 yards – big!),
and the small bracelets for the knitting class were the smallest – I didn’t even count them into the mix for yards.
By the numbers:
- Sweaters – 6
- Socks – 6 pairs, plus 1 pair baby booties
- Dishcloths – 10
- Shawls – 4
- Cowls – 2
- Mittens – 1
- Hats – 13
- Knitted Knockers – 101
- Stuffed Toys – 2 (Dolores Van Hoofen, Bunny from a square, plus 2 outfits for DvF
- Baby Blanket 1
- Bracelets – 4
My going-in goal for the year is to knit myself more sweaters – I knit a short sleeve cardigan and a shell (that magically now fits me because I gain weight – yay?), and would like to freshen up my sweater mojo. I also want to use some yarn that I bought in 2016 in Paris in the Montmartre – will have to make plans soon. Finally, I want to do some colorwork knitting for the new baby, and I’m already swatching. So fun!
