2019 WIPs and FOs Round Up

My first December Special episode of 90% Knitting is a “revisit” of my WIPstravaganza endeavor for this year, expanded to also be an overview of the projects I worked on through all of 2019. Because there are so many, and because the description box area of YouTube has a limit, I’m posting the show notes here, outlining each project I shared in the video. I hope this is helpful!


Thanks for watching!

I’ve listed below the yarn and pattern info for the projects I showed in this year-end round up. (Projects that were frogged or otherwise not finished are not listed here.) For more details on a specific project, please go to that project’s page on Ravelry. You’ll find all of my project pages here: https://www.ravelry.com/projects/fibernymph If you’re unable to find what you’re looking for, or if you are not active on Ravelry, feel free to email me with any questions – fibernymph AT gmail DOT com
