If you know me well, then you probably know at least these three things about me:
- I like thinking about knitting
- I am prone to fits of weirdly productive procrastination
- I’m a big giant dork
This is my way of warning you about what you are about to see. I cannot be held accountable, it was bound to happen, this is just how I roll. I give you (wait for it)…
(you curious yet?)…
KNITTING DATA!!! Complete with tables and graphs. Microsoft Excel, how I love thee. Also, you’re welcome, world. These needed to exist.
|Figure 1. This figure displays the same information as Table 1 in bar chart form. It is clear that hats and shawls were the most numerous projects completed in 2010 while hats alone were most numerous in 2011, with socks a close second. It is interesting to note that the same number of projects were completed in both 2010 and 2011 in the mitts and items for tiny humans categories. An increasing trend in sock knitting is anticipated as there is the same number of pairs of socks currently on the needles (Current WIPs) as there were finished in 2010.|
There you have it, folks, a grad-student-style knitting recap. Please note that I did stop myself before trying to total the amounts of yarn used for each of those projects in each year and before attempting any sort of statistical analysis. I’m not totally off my rocker, sheesh!
