In my previous post you'll see the numbers from the last 6 years, the averages, as well as our % of goal reached in 2018. Goal being the average of the last 5 years.
This graphic shows our previous average (the 5 year average), the percent of the goal we reached for 2018, the total number of each item collected in the last 6 years, and the new average. You can see the average has gone down in each category with the exception of the afghans which stayed constant. Technically we were a strange 35 point something but I think saying 35 is fine, and easier to deal with, lol.
Reviewing last year, I realized I made 8 afghans, so I will endeavor to make more than 8 for the coming year. Last year I made, Crocheted Eclectic Afghan, Orange Julius, Mountain Sky, Blanket of Many Colors, Learning Logs, Jeweled Lines, Earth and Sky, and Cardiac Collage.
Hopefully, by the time you read this post, our goals ...the graphs here on the blog will have been updated to reflect the 6th year averages...the number being our goal for the year of 2019.
Currently working on this one.
Barely started. It's a ripple, a knitted one. I've not made a true knitted ripple before. I have made a feather and fan style which falls into the category of ripples, but this is a bit different. Click to enlarge so you can see the detail from going from garter stitch for the border to the purl patterned stitches. Current thinking is stripping it with both the blue and the brown variegated. Trying to use up some stash. Maybe...a 3rd color? Since this is scheduled, as all posts typically are; but the time you read this post....I hope to have completed more.
I just tested this light. You ware it on your neck. The light is very helpful on dark cloudy days, or at night when you're forced to try and see dark colors by the light of lamps. It's a Minger Light. Suggested by our friend, Sandie P who's been such a long time supporter of Bridge and Beyond. I add my recommendation to hers if anyone has trouble seeing yarn at night.
