What a year!

I've been keeping track of my yarn usage for the last 11 years. I've been posting those totals here for at least the last six. And this year is no exception. Despite my missteps of blogging, I have actually been very productive with my fiber arts:

2 adult sweaters
3 afghan squares (for my charity group)
4 bibs
29 pairs of booties
2 cat toys
17 children’s sweaters
1 Christmas stocking
9 coasters
19 cowls
13 dishcloths
3 dishtowels
5 adult hats
1 baby blanket
5 pairs of mittens
1 pillow cover
13 placemats
2 potholders
6 baby caps
1 felted purse
1 bathmat
6 scarves
1 shawl
8 tea toters
1 teddy bear sweater
6 holiday ornaments

I used a total of 34,526 yards of yarn (that’s more than 20 miles!) weighing just a hair under 33 pounds!

This is the 11th year I am keeping track and my 4th most productive year.

It's Been a Long, Long Time

I've been away from the blog for so long that I had to think long and hard about how to download photos (especially since Kodak has gone belly-up) and then, to figure out how to log in to Blogger.

So, hoping this works, because at the very least, I'd like to be able to tabulate 2012 fiber-wise.

I've been knitting and weaving, and I entered the fair again this year and did very, very well. Sadly, I took few photos and most everything that I made has long since been sent to its intended recipients.

Some of the newer stuff, though, was photographed and for your viewing pleasure:

A scarf of the long and narrow variety, woven of various novelty yarns, mostly viscose and silk.

The fringes of said scarf showing the variety of yarns.

A set of dishtowels. Same warp, differing weft. Cotton chenille.

Current On The Loom project. More dishtowels, this time in a smooth cotton. Love the faux plaid that the space dyed cotton is making up into.

I am hoping to get back into blogging regularly into the new year. I look upon this as a documentary of my fiberlife. a journal, if you will. I do it for me. If it affords pleasure to the random reader, great.
