Well, I have one more pair of socks to photo and then my completed projects list for 2014 is finished! Here is a collage of all but that last pair of socks, which I’ll photo in the next day or two and will share in an upcoming blog post.
I added year-tags as well as project type tags to all of my projects on Ravelry and like that I can look things up that way now in my projects list. I don’t keep track of stash on Ravelry, but I definitely like keeping track of my completed projects. This year I finished 34 things – definitely my most productive year. Having to knit up the Celebrations yarn every month sure helped! (Next year we’ll do Celebrations yarn quarterly. I can’t keep up with every month again! We do have some fun ideas for celebrating through yarn in 2015.) This year my projects broke down to:
I think my favorite was the Angelus Shawl I did for Camp Loopy. Camp always seems to push me into some of my best projects. This was done with Blue Moon Socks that Rock Mediumweight. We have more of those two colors coming in January.
In 2014, I wanted to complete more socks (and pairs, not singles), so I did focus on that. Only one single this year. 🙂 It’s really terrible how many single socks I have. (There were so many different yarn lines I needed to test out back in those years.) I know my knitting gauge has changed over the years, because now I have to knit my socks on size 0’s and it used to be 1’s. So it’s probably pointless to make the matching pairs, don’t you think? See all of these singles?? This is a true confessions post if ever there was one. I know I could wear mis-matched pairs, but I really don’t think that would work for me. My feet (and brain) would be feeling weird all day.
As you look back at your 2014 projects, were you happy with the ones you were able to get done? What was your favorite completed project this year? Do you know what type of project you knit most often? Will that change in 2015?
My plans are to keep knitting pairs of socks and to finish the two sweaters that I currently have on the needles. (Because FPS already!) Of course there will be Loopy Academy and Camp Loopy projects in my queue for 2015, as well as working with the gorgeous Celebrations colors that we’ll have coming out. And somewhere in there I want to fit in some quilting time. So – it looks like another full year ahead for me. How about for you?
