When I left work just before 4 p.m. yesterday, my car was covered in slushy sleet…and again this morning, but it is above freezing and actually pretty foggy outside.
I decided that before too much more of January skips by us I should do a reading and knitting review of 2018. I don’t set goals or anything…I just like seeing what I did.
I read a total of 43 books during 2018. 16 were non-fiction and 27 were fiction. Six of the 43 were read with Fletch after dinner (1 fiction; 5 non-fiction). My ratings (1-5 stars):
- · 12 at 5 *
- · 4 at 4.5 *
- · 11 at 4 *
- · 7 at 3.5 *
- · 7 at 3 *
- · 2 at 2.5 *
Nice that 27 were rated 4 * or above. My favorite book overall for 2018 was “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” by Jules Verne (read with Fletch after dinner).
A total of 16 projects:
- · 8 pairs of socks
- · 4 pairs of fingerless mitts
- · 1 sweater
- · 1 shawl
- · 1 hat
- · 1 fiddly cat
And there you have it! My Knitting/Reading journal for 2019 has already been started with a finish in each category. Again, no goals, but I will be curious to see how 2019 stacks up compared to 2018. More on that in another year – lol.
Today should be a little busier for me than yesterday was – starting with a financial conference call at 10:30. But, knitting and reading have been brought to work (I did start a hat yesterday at lunch time). Wishing you all the best that this Tuesday may bring you.
