Hello! It’s been a while – I had minor surgery* that totally knocked me, so I took a break for the rest of the year. I’ll be back next year with more creations and some other content, but for now, here’s a review of everything I sewed and knitted in 2018.
I’m very proud of everything I created this year. Even if some of the items didn’t work out for me, I’m still satisfied with my craftmanship (craftwomanship?) and feel confident in my little handmade wardrobe. There are a few more items to add once I’ve photographed and blogged them, but they’ll have to wait for next year.
Now for the stats! I made 29 garments, 22 sewn and 6 knitted. Of those sewn, 11 were made in wovens (many stretch woven) and 12 knits (all of my handknits were in sheep’s wool). That’s a far cry from when I used to exclusively wear fitted woven dresses.
No surprise that I made mainly tops, thanks to the ridiculous number of Grainline Hemlocks I sewed. I really must cut back on dresses given how little I wear them. But they’re so easy to sew!
Sad to see my beloved Burda bumped down to 1 make this year! (It didn’t show on the chart but it’s the pink “1” slice.)
Thanks for sticking with me this year, friends. I truly appreciate your comments and interactions on this little space here. Best wishes for a happy and healthful as possible 2019!
