My crafting year 2015

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 1, 2016, 8:13 AM


Finally, 2015 is over! I feel like it's been very messy for me when it comes to documenting everything. I completely stopped blogging, I fell behind on uploading finished projects, and my yarn counter has a huge backlog.

2016 will have different goals, and I will stop the yarn storeage counting, I just couldn't keep up... A different thing I will start doing though, is to put money in a hermetically sealed moneybank for every skein I finish. 5NOK for every 50g skein and 10NOK for every 100g skein. I've been thinking about doing this earlier, but without a job, it didn't really work out that well, seeing how much I actually knit. I can afford it now, so I will make it happend, and my mother gave me a moneybank that I can use for it, so this will be awesome! Put in your guesses on how much it'll be at the end of this year!

But here's a recap of 2015, enjoy!
