  • 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?

    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.

    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?
