This is my finale post for a Year of Projects 2021-2022. My goal was to not deviate from the list too much, which is laughable.
- I had a solo show in September 2021, and I made a body of work for this show. I finished ten pieces.
- I grew flax and tried to process it to weave an art piece. This was unsuccessful, as I over-retted the flax.
- I experimented with fresh leaf indigo printing from my garden.
In 2021-2022 I finished 21 pieces of knitting:
- Pride Socks for Bob
- The Lonely Heart is a Hunter Mystery Knit Along (Rav link)
- Milkshake Cardigan
- Cemetery Drive Cowl
- Nova Scotia Strong Hat for Margie

In 2020-2021 I finished knitting 22 items, so this tracks. Although I now have 29 items on my knitting to do list. I hope to increase the number I finish this coming year. I’ve got three sweaters on the needles. Last year I knit two sweaters, but somehow I finished four sweaters the year before.

It’s difficult to keep count of finished sewing since I tend to sew multiples of the same pattern. This year I made a lot of PJ pants, joggers, and dresses. Comfort has been key as I try to manage my health.
I replaced my spinning wheel and took a class to get started.
Most Proud Make
I made a coat! It wouldn’t win any sewing awards, but it is wearable. I learned interlining and how to bag out a lining in a garment. I expect I will get a lot of wears out of it this year if we have a cold winter.
I can’t choose one. These are the items I find I’m using most. I guess I’m a shawl person now.
This is my final post for Year of Projects 2021-2022. You can find out more about the group here (Rav link) or here: Backstage Kath’s YOP bloggers list. I’ve enjoyed being part of this group. I’m thankful Liz mentioned it to me! Next week I will post my plans for 2022-2023.
