2014 Christmas Wrap-Up

Because when better to talk about last Christmas than the second week of the new year.

So, for 2014, I set out to make seven projects. Then I added an eighth. Then I dropped four and only managed to finish three. Official list:

  1. Hat and glove set
  2. Scarf
  3. Shawl
  4. Gloves
  5. Stormtrooper socks
  6. Smaller Stormtrooper socks
  7. Ninja Turtle socks
  8. Smaller Ninja Turtle socks

Outside of the official project list, I sent one grandmother the Haruni shawl I finished back in November. While I like making triangular shawls, turns out I’m not so much a fan of wearing them.

I had a request for Star Wars socks from the five-year-old around October, so I found a chart and started on them. And then they turned into a huge mess, so I started over. By a week until Christmas, I just had to give up to get other things done.

I came up withe the idea for scarves pretty randomly. For one, I knew it just needed to be warm and green, so a long, sock-weight scarf would do.

The other took some Pinterest snooping to come up with the pattern. I saw a plaid gradient triangle scarf in one of the recipient’s boards and decided on a gradient entrelac shawl.


The last minute addition happened because I could not think of anything to get for the final person on my list. She doesn’t really wear scarves or hats, so I decided gloves would be best. I wandered the local yarn store a while, even though the yarn I eventually picked was what jumped out at me very first.

So three-and-a-half out of eight isn’t bad. That’s not to mention the supplies for another project I picked up and wrapped the night before I gave it to be completed after the new year. Which I just happened to do last week, and you will get to see on Thursday. Can you guess what it is?
