Before we get too far into 2016, a recap of my 2015 knitting/fiber goals.
- Spin up my handspun stash (as of New Year’s Day). I did the worst on this one. Aside from the yarn I spun for my POP blanket, I don’t think I knitted up any other handspun. I spun a lot, I gifted some, but I definitely didn’t reach this goal.
2. Learn to darn my hand knit socks. I did this, at the very end of the year!
3. Knit 15 bears for the Mother Bear Project and 15 hats for Larkin Street Youth Services. I blew this one out of the water, knitting 26 bears and 15 hats (plus one that I never wore that I added to the donation pile). Some of these bear photos are the ones I knitted in 2015, others are some that were sighted in 2015 in Africa with their forever friends.
I was also lucky enough to 1) volunteer in the Mother Bear Project booth at Stitches West and 2) join other bear knitters in Minneapolis for their monthly get-together where they sew hearts on the bears prior to their being shipped off to Africa.
