One Hundred and Eighty

2017 was not my best year when it came to crafting projects as life got in the way.

I’ve been trying to compile a list of WIPs that I have started or bought the materials to start so I can get cracking on them. At the start of each new year, EatSleepKnit launches a new Yarnathon which sends me into a tizzy planning and plotting. In one of the chat groups, there was a question to list down the fantasy goals we had for the year (and the more boring realistic goals). This was mine:

Fantasy Goals

Hue Shift Afghan KAL
All 4 ESK KALs with bonus stars and max yardage
Finish other 2 blankets I have started (First I need to find it)
Finish other patterns + yarns I bought (some since 2015)
Finish a cross stitch project for a friend (since 2015 or 2014 – I have forgotten)
Get some progress on my other cross stitch projects
An Estonian shawl
One Ring Scarf
MMario’s Peacock Shawl – which I’ve been hankering over for years
Hitofude
Stop adding to my que
Stop buying new materials until I finish current ones

Semi-realistically:
2x Gothic Lace Cowl for bonus points
Maybe a Harvest for yardage
Finish last year’s Flax light by May for man’s birthday
Find pawprint and finish it, LONG HAUL!
Spirits of Life CAL
1 pair of Hermione socks

So… I took a long holiday in January, went back to work unexpectedly in February and have been swamped by work ever since. I also had 2 additional projects that I had to do for various reasons, which had looming deadlines.

Would you want to guess how many projects I accomplished from the above list or the status of any of them?
