This is a quickie post because I dont have much knitting news to show you. I am so tired at the end of the day that when the kids go to bed, I am lucky to make it to 9:30pm without falling asleep much less feel like knitting. Thought I had pink eye, but I don't. I have a cold or something that is making my head feel like a huge balloon. Maybe I am dead tired because of being sick.
Anyhoo, at the end of the year I total all the projects I have made and in 2005 I finished 38 projects, in 2006 I have only 33. My knitting excitement might be wearing down, or maybe life gets in the way, I am not sure. Of the 38 items knit in 2005, 12 of them were scarves, but in 2006 I only knit 2 scarves. I knit twice as many socks in 2006 then in 2005, so I that is good.
I know these stats because I am a very anal organized individual who keeps track of my stash, start/end dates of projects, needle inventory and info on FO. Oh yeah, and I record all my gauge swatches for yarn I know will be used in the future. No use in knitting two swatches, eh? Thankfully excel is such a great tool, as one spreadsheet keeps all the info needed.
If anyone is interested in using my excel spreadsheet for their purposes, let me know and I can email it to you.
Have a good one.
