So 18 projects done and 6 of them were languishing WIPs....so that's pretty good....

Last year I had made 27 things by this time...but I was also involved with the Ravellenics, Nerd Wars and had done a few swaps.  I haven't done any "competitions" this year...and no swaps....so yeah it does affect my output...

I also took on my first knit sweater, so that is taking time...and a couple of longer (for me) projects...

So what do I still have "In Progress"  Quite a lot, but it has dwindled...

Your doing really great this year so far, I know you may not be doing any competitions and it may affect your output but when not doing them you are still putting out quite a good bit and with longer to you projects and a sweater. Hope you can get more done now that you are on the summer holidays.

What a great half way check point. No nerd wars decreased my productivity too :(

Your list still blows me away! Lots and lots going on!

Yay! Rainbows!

Love the rainbows!! You have still accomplished so much and some of those projects have been quite substantial! Looking forward to seeing the second half of your year.

I participate in the Harry Potter Knitting Crochet House Cup. I took the first three months of this year off from that competition, but I'm back at it this term. It makes a huge difference in my output -- in June I finished 4,722 yards (2.68 miles) worth of projects. That's more than I had finished in the 5 preceding months.
