I didn't feel that I had been very productive, but frankly productivity is not my goal. I'm much more interested in improving my skills and understanding construction. However this has been a crazy year and I have felt heavily-loaded for most of it. So my fibery projects have primarily been simple and relaxing.
I decided it would be interesting (perhaps only to me) to take an objective view of 2012. Many thanks to Ravelry for making this possible. :-)
As if I didn't know this already, I like hats....
Only six hand-knit projects were completed in 2012 and every, single, one of them was a hat. Hubba's Christmas Hat will make seven, but technically it is not completed as of this moment.
Note: there are only four patterns used across seven hats... how's that for keeping things simple this year?I have six projects In Progress.
Two projects are officially Hibernating.
However, the truth is that three of my WIPs have not had any attention in quite a while, so essentially that makes five in Hibernation.
I officially Frogged three knit projects. There were a few more that didn't even make it to the Ravelry Project Page. I'm pretty certain that the two in Official Hibernation will also be Frogged.
I did spin 11 skeins of yarn in 2012 though, so that's something. ;-)
The Wonder Why Gal had asked about Fibery Goals for 2013... at this point they are (1) to skirt enough raw alpaca fiber to send to the mill and (2) to re-finish the floor in the basement so that I can set up my loom. I would also like to have the fortitude to tackle more complex projects, but at this point that's just a wish, and not a goal.
Happy New Year!
