It's that time of year again: looking back while looking forward. A year ago we sold our house, packed up the kids, and drove halfway across the country. It was bitterly cold when we arrived here and my toes were numb for two weeks (not exaggerating). It was a crazy up and down time looking for a house and finally moving in 2 months later.
Now, a year later, we're satisfied with our furniture arrangements, have figured out this house's particular quirks, have grown to love our neighborhood and . . . I have a decent selection of wool socks (thanks, mom!).
And now the part you've really been waiting for ... the statistics. The graphs below are based on 117 finished garments. I didn't include my Mrs. Stylebook sloper, 4 stool covers, or the sad capri pants I fed my serger. [Thanks go to my husband for creating these charts. His inner nerd includes databases. He dreams databases like I dream pattern drafting.]
