One Last One In Under the Wire

Tonight I finished yet another chemo cap, so I am ending April with a monthly tally of:

Projects finished:  11
Yards of fabric used:  15.75 
Yards of yarn used:  1772
Skeins of yarn used:  11

for year-to-date totals of:  

Projects finished:  43
Yards of fabric used:  36.25
Yards of yarn used:  5839
Skeins of yarn used:  36.25

We're now one-third of the way through 2011, and if I keep up this pace, I would end the year with:

Projects finished:  129
Yards of fabric used:  108.75
Yards of yarn used:  17,517
Skeins of yarn used:  108.75

Everything looks really good except the yards of yarn tally.  Ideally, I'd like to reach 25,000 yards, but I would still be pretty pleased with 20,000.  Of course, some knitters would be pleased with ending up with a bunch of knitted stuff at the end of the year.......Go figure.

Your numbers look great so far! Truly inspiring. I think if you get to 17,000 yards knit up by the end of this year that it will be cause for a huge celebration!!! (but just not a 17,000 yard purchase celebration) :P

Good for you Toni. I can't keep up at your pace, but I did just finish my 23rd project of the year, so Hooray for me, too! Have a wonderful day,
