Happy New Year.
I've been back from holiday since Saturday evening, but still getting my life sorted out. We had a nice driving and visiting and sight seeing vacation that lasted two and a half weeks. I really disconnected from my normal day to day, which is what vacations are all about. I didn't do too much evaluating of 2007 or planning for 2008 either. Just saw a lot of people; did some hiking and sight seeing.
I gave every one of the brioche scarfs I had knit this year away.
Husband needed to start on a business trip, so I had to drive at the beginning. This made me a bit grumpy, as I was planning on finishing Fern and the Dale baby sweater on the trip out. I did finish the baby sweater completely, and all the knitting on Fern. Still have to sew it up.
So, Knitting Evaluation from 2007
1) use only stash
2) knit 6 adult sweaters
1) purchased some stash on Mothers day, but it was all used up by the end of the year. Count as a success
2) I will count Fern as a 2007 sweater, and make the count 5 sweaters.
2a) A Cardigan for Arwen - 26 oz
2b) Elegant Diagonals - 16 oz
2c) Hardangervidda - 32 oz
2d) Brilla coverup - 17 oz
2e) Fern - 20 oz
13 fluffy brioche scarves average 2.5 oz per scarf = 32.5 oz
5 baby sweaters 28 oz total
If the goal was to use stash to make 6 sweaters, I'd say that the scarfs and baby sweaters count towards that goal, and the goal was well met.
Total ounces removed from stash 171, if I added correctly.
That's over 10 pounds!!
