2013 Stashdown: Q1

I had to give some thought to how I want to present my Stashdown numbers this year…I really like the idea of showing the results for every Q1 I’ve participated in to date to see if there are certain trends I can discover in them.  Being that this is the fourth year I’ve participated in Stashdown efforts, I’m starting to accumulate quite a lot of data.

It’s definitely interesting to see all four Q1s laid out like that.  *ahem*  I may have fallen hard off the wagon after all of the effort of making a point system, but I have confidence that the rest of this year can go by with minimal stash enhancement.  We shall see. 😉

Kittens!  March ended up being a fairly productive month.  There were several days that I did no knitting at all, so I’m really pleased with those numbers.

2013 is off to a good start in terms of productivity.  I managed to knit a good sized chunk of my son’s blanket, and I’m hoping to finish that project up before the end of May.  (I can do this as long as I work on it daily and do not put it on hold any more.  1 hour a night; that’s all it would take.  I can do that, right?)  I made a good start on my Pomme de Pin cardigan and also hope to be finishing that up by the end of April.  Maybe I can bang out a small project or two as well.

I hope you all have been staying healthy, and your weather is starting to turn lovely.  Here’s to hoping April will be kind!
