Ok folks, Here's our totals for the year with the comparisons I posted last year showing totals from years 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. Additionally, I show what the average of those five years was....that's the number we used for our goals for the year 2018. As you can see, we fell short in every category. We came closest with our afghans ...which is shown in red and we got over 50% of our goal for scarves and just under 50% for Mittens (those two shown in blue,) but it may look purple on your monitor.
I reviewed, and found I made 8 afghans for the year 2018. If I had made just 2 more, we would have made it. I will endeavor to pick up the pace next year and see how we fair. I still have a fair number of pieces to put together. Perhaps if I work on a few more of those vs knitting outright, I can make more headway towards that goal Time will see. The knitting bothers my arthritis less, while putting the pieces together is crocheting. Will try to balance that out a bit.
I have already started the next afghan, a knitted ripple...so it's a start. I will be re-adjusting averages and making new goals in the coming days so please stay tuned.
In the meantime, please continue doing what you're doing..........knit, crochet, and loom and care for others. You're all truly amazing people.
I would like to report our numbers were greater, but I truly understand people have medical issues and can't knit or crochet as much as they used to. I also understand the cost of postage has increased making it more important to send less, and or donate more locally........which if you're still donating locally still means others are benefiting from your kind heart.
**The counts on our progress bars are current. All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.
