Starting Totals:
73,472 yards, 419 skeins
Ending Totals:
71,979 yards, 399 skeins

2013

  • Knit 17,838 yards and 102 skeins
  • Bought 17,896 yards and 116 skeins
  • Spent $770.00
  • Finished 51 items

2014

  • Knit 14,761 yards and 80 skeins
  • Destashed 1,637 yards and 10 skeins
  • Bought 12,511 yards and 62 skeins
  • Spent $550.00
  • Finished 77 items

At least I spent less and acquired less this year. Sure wish my knitting totals had been higher. I can take solace in the fact I bought less than I knit this year. Last year? Not so much.

Goals for 2015? I try not to make them, because I never keep them. I always endeavor to knit only for me, but that falls by the wayside very soon into the new year. So, no resolutions. I will just try to be true to my knitting and stay the course with my Library Challenge, to knit from the patterns or books I have on hand and not buy new patterns or books. I will call it a success if I knit at least 1 item from my pattern stash.

So, what’s you year in review look like and how are you looking to the future?

  1. I don’t even want to THINK about what I spent on yarn last year and that would be with my discount. EEK

    I love the Waning Winter – what is the yarn? 🙂 And the tam! And how was the arm knitting? I’ve been curious about it.

    I’m going to have so many hang over knits this year. Sigh.

  2. There’s no way that I would track what I spent on yarn. You’re much braver than I am! That’s a nice collection of finished goodies. The Autumn Tam’s my favorite.

Cat got your tongue?
