Last year, I managed 6/12 projects, so 50%. This year I've done 15/20 knitting projects and 1/3 sewing projects, plus managed to make 19 preemie baby items
I wanted to make a pair a month, and I didn't quite manage that, but I have made 9 pairs, so I'm taking that as a big achievement. I definitely think my sock knitting skills have improved over the year, and I've posted the pictures in order of completion date

There were only two things on this list that I didn't manage to make, and they'll be first on the list for next year. I still love them, it's just time to knit is shorter than I would like it to be. I did finish a project that I started in 2010 though, so the UFOs have all been done, and I made three big projects, including a sweater and a giant shawl, Celestarium, which is still my favourite project of the year.

Preemie Baby Items
Total: 10 cardigans, 6 hats, 3 blankets. There are a couple in here that you haven't seen yet, as they've been this weeks knitting. And I think I've fulfilled the hospital's request for teeny tiny blue cardigans quite effectively.
I fell down on this. I did get one long term WIP completed, but I haven't done any work on the other two projects. But they're both very long term projects anyway, and I didn't expect to get them done this year. I do need to give them a weekend though.
Tatty Teddy bookmark - completed 1st September 2012
So that's my list for the year, not a bad completion rate I think. I will be doing it again next year, though probably with a different knid of list, which is less specific patterns and more aims and skills I want to achieve. There'll still be a few patterns on there though!
