Year in Review

In keeping with the trends, I thought I'd do a year-end wrap up.

Finished in 2007:

7 sweaters
14 pairs of socks
3 adult hats
4 Calorimetrys
10 baby/toddler/kid hats
4 baby items
5 bags
2 handwarmers
3 stuffed toys
2 pair felted clogs
3 scarves
2 dishcloths
2 beer coozies
1 felted bowl
1 belt

for a year end total of 62 items. Whew!

It sure didn't seem like that many throughout the year though. I didn't meet my goals of 2 pairs of socks and 1 sweater per month, but I did start plenty of projects!

I currently have 49 WIPs. Yikes. That's a big, scary number.
Of those, 4 will be hibernating until spring.
At least two will be finished by the end of the week. Hopefully more.
4 are secret projects you haven't seen yet.
And there are a lot of socks on that list. Lots.

My favorite FO of the year was the Central Park Hoodie. I wear it almost every day I can. I love it. My favorite gift to knit was Jarrett (though I thought that all that stockinette might kill me).

My knitting followed much the same trend as last year, with the exception of more sweaters. I really enjoy wearing my sweaters, so I'm going to keep on knitting them! I have several currently on the needles, and plans for more!

I will have lots more to say about my upcoming knitting goals, personal goals, stash enhancement, and more in the coming days. But in the meantime, I'm really enjoying seeing everyone's goals and year end wrap-ups, so keep 'em coming!

2007 was a big year for us, with the kitchen remodel, a new kitten and new grade levels, and I'm sure 2008 will bring more excitement! Happy New Year to you and your families! Thanks for reading!


  1. That must be a record-setting number of WIPs! Eek! Good luck in 2008!

  2. You got a lot done in 2007! But I'm hyperventilating about the number of WIPs you have... yikes!

    You sure did get a lot done this year but YIKES that's a lot of WIP's. Maybe though there is a correlation between your WIP's and the number you completed. Maybe I need to cast on more often. :)

    WOW! That's a whole lot of knitting! Where on earth do you keep all those WIPs? ;)

  5. and james thinks i'm nuts for having 3 wip's! congrats on all the knitting and one of my goals is to make myself a central park hoodie - but in blue, not green :) and finish the damn dr. who scarf (i could kill amanda for getting me into that). happy new year, and happy knitting!
