    Default What did you make (finish) in 2008?

    Since I'm a slow knitter, I did pretty well:

    17 pairs of socks.
    shrug for DD#1
    4 hats
    1 scarf

    I guess you can tell I like knitting socks!

    So, YankeeMom, go ahead and wow us with your tally!

    Nothing. I just took up knitting again this year. I'm very impressed with your list.

    it's not that impressive ... most of it is during 'waiting' time -- long car rides; bus rides; kids' lessons; tv watching (that's probably the most time).

    When I have a new technique to learn, my project can sit for a long time until I have a chance for quiet knitting time.

    4 prs baby socks
    2 washcloths
    1 dishcloth
    3 dog sweaters (1 large, 2 small)
    10 hats
    6 prs Adult socks
    3 prs kids socks
    1 baby sweater
    2 Adult sweaters
    2 kid sweaters
    3 prs wristlets
    1 kitchen towel
    2 crocheted shopping bags

    That's just going off my Ravelry list. There are a few small things (catnip mice, baby hats/ booties, cup cozies, socks, as gifts) that I just never got around to putting on there.

    Going to hide now

    Heather! Wow. That's amazing!
    I crocheted scarves for my girls. That's it. I was proud that I fit it in, too. LOL

    I am highly impressed. My list is not nearly as long.
    I finished 2 crocheted baby afghans and some small sewing projects including valances, a knitting needle case, and crochet hook case.
    I must say that I started much more than I finished.
    This year will be year to finish project not start them.
    I need to finish 2 crocheted afghans, 2 knitted scarves (I am very slow knitter), and some sew projects including a tote bag (all cut out and ready to be sewn) and maybe my bedroom curtains.
    There are so many items that I want to make, but I need to finish before I can start new ones.
