2017 makes

I have no new FOs to share this week – still plugging away at my swirl hat. So instead I thought I’d jump on the bandwagon and have a look at all my FOs from 2017.

I’m so, so glad I have this blog to look back on because my memory is not that great, if you’d asked me to guess I would have said maybe 30-40 yarny items and 20 cards. Want to know what I actually made?

That’s (if my maths is working today) 87 knit and crochet goodies in a year! 87!!

I mean, some of them were teeny snowflakes that only needed 15 minutes max, but there was also my friend’s mahoosive flat warming blanket, which took me two weeks of non-stop crocheting.

It’s been really tricky choosing my favourite makes of the year. There are so many different types and I’m proud of them all for different reasons.

The flat warming blanket is definitely up there. I finished faster than I expected, it was huge, the colours suited my friend’s flat, and it just so happened to fit perfectly on the back of his sofa.

I loved the Daisies for Vicky and hearts4MCR, because they helped other people and that’s important to me.

The Seafoam scarves make me inordinately proud. My first knitting that wasn’t just garter stitch, plus they’re beautiful.

Also my hats in the round, which was a new technique for me.

I’m also proud of the couple of items I made without following a pattern, and the fact that Dad looked at my amigurumi pokemon and nearly asked me where I bought them from.

Basically, it’s been a good year!  I can’t wait to see what makes 2018 will bring.

Have you reviewed your 2017 makes? I bet it surprised you too. Do you have a favourite (yours or mine)? Let me know in the comments!

  2. Since I tend towards toys, I have to pick the lovies with the plushie in the middle and the kittie. So cute! My favorite from my stuff was my life size doll. Now that was a project I never thought I’d begin, much less finish! But the kids are still playing with it and half of them don’t even know that I made it! LOL

  3. That’s a LOT! I think I will be happy this year if I knit an average of 1 thing per month. In fact, 12 complete knits in a year would be amazing for me.
