I can't believe we're nearly half way through this project now! As next Sunday is Christmas Day, I suspect I will be too busy to write an update (and you'll all be too busy to read it), so this is going to be my last Year of Projects update in 2011.
I started out in July with a list of twenty knit or crochet projects that I wanted to make. I modified the list, taking four off and adding five more. In the last six months I have cast on/hooked for 11 projects from my list, which means I've started just over 50% of the list. Of those eleven, I've finished six. 30% complete!
Here's a round up of my finishes:
|Sweet Pea Shawl - made for a wedding and now seeing daily use as a scarf|
|Crochet Lacy Wrap - now part of my LRP costume|
|Victorian Scarf - haven't worn it yet!|
|Jane Austen Shawl - worn to a wedding, and a couple of times since|
as a scarf to brighten up an outfit
|Thinking of You scarf - I have been wearing this|
in the current cold weather
|Free Rapunzel hat - I wear this a lot!|
Maybe I would be further through my list if I hadn't managed to distract myself with so many other projects! According to my Ravelry page, I've completed 12 other projects since July, and have four non-YoP WIPs currently on needles/hooks alongside the five unfinished WIPs from the list!
I'm going to try my best to resist the urge to cast on things which aren't on my list, at least for the first few months of the new year. I may also have to revise the list down a bit, and cut some of the projects that are either going to be too expensive (like the Diamonds Shawl, which will require me to buy a book just for that pattern, and expensive yarn to make it from) or just wont get used/worn (such as the Pineapple Monokini, which was only on the list because it was so silly).
