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:
- Hat and glove set
Stormtrooper socks Smaller Stormtrooper socks Ninja Turtle socks 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?
