I wasn't looking forward to writing this post. I knew, and have known for a long time, I wasn't going to make it to my goal. It was ambitious to think I would be able to knit 12 sweaters, 12 pairs of socks, and sew 12 garments over the course of the year. This is the second year I've attempted and failed. I'm sure It's not impossible. Perhaps, if I didn't have a day job.... Maybe if I didn't take month long breaks from blogging... Perhaps, if I was less lazy... the list of excuses goes on. Overall, I was far less productive this year than I was last year. But, in review, I'm pleased with the things I made.
While I didn't make my goal, collecting and recounting the things I did accomplish this year, was a surprisingly enjoyable experience.
I knit ELEVEN sweaters.
I knit EIGHT pairs of socks
I knit Three hats, Three pairs of mittens and TWO blankets
And, I completed SIX sewn garments.
Based on my best estimation from the notes I kept and Ravelry, I knit approximately 14,500 yards of yarn this year, which is a lot, but it's more than 8,500 yards less than I knit in 2011! (WOW!).
At this point, I have several projects on the brink of completion. It's totally possible I'm not finished finishing things for the year. Regardless, there won't be any major changes to this list. And, I'm pretty ready to relax for the rest of 2012. I'm geared up to start 2013. How about you? Did you meet your goals for 2012?
