Day Three: Infographic - Lost in Translation




I thought that it would be fun to see how my ravelry favorited patterns correlated with the actual projects that I finished. To my surprise, at the top of my FO list were hats! Of which I own zero. Hmmm...very interesting. Also of surprise were the higher than expected number of FO's listed under toys, home decor and ornaments. I have always thought of myself as a sweater knitter, but it seems that I am gravitating more to smaller projects. This is most likely due to a lack of time and a shorter attention span. Although from the high number of cardigans & pullovers that are in my rav faves, I still mainly dream about sweaters. And you? Do your rav faves match up to what you actually knit/crochet?

  4. I have never made a garment for myself and only one skirt for the Tween. I seem to be hooked on throws, huge beanbags and handbags. Love your graphic, it is super pleasing to look at.

  9. Interesting graphics! I haven't checked, but I'm sure my FOs and Favourites don't match up - I add lots of inspirational patterns to favourites, knowing I won't ever make them.

  10. Very cool! I feel like mine would be similar. I've been faving a lot of socks and sweaters lately...and my finished projects are 0 for 0 on those!

    I love your graph paper :D

  11. This is a really interesting project. It is really odd the way our brains think something that is not necessarily correct. I wonder why ....

  12. I can't even manage to keep track of my projects on Ravelry, so I'm very impressed by what you have done. I also love all the colors you used on your chart! :-)

  14. VERY interesting!....I have a lot of sweaters in my Q and I've yet to knit an adult sized one, so you are not alone.

  15. Interesting - it's given me an idea to compare what I queue to what I actually knit - I think the outcome might be similar ;)

  16. that's a really interesting infographic.

    I love that sometimes what we think we do isn't actually the reality of the situation.

  17. My favorites are all over the place! I used to try and organize them and then I stopped. Most of my productivity is on smaller projects, too.
