Monthly Yarn Club ~ 2016 (& 2015 wrap up)

Last year was the first that i did the personal monthly yarn club. The concept is picking 12 skeins(i picked some from my existing yarn stash) and picking one at random every month to use for a project. I'm doing the same this year.

2015 was pretty exciting in all sorts of ways. I got the biggest news ever; i'm expecting and waiting patiently for my bundle of joy to arrive this April. I also almost reached my goal of beating/completing 1 game a month(i did 10) which is a huge improvement from previous years. As far as the monthly yarn club goes, i was 3 shy of reaching my goal and i didn't technically finish all the projects for the used skeins either(a couple are still in the works making them WIPs. Completed projects weren't a requirement however). You can check out more details in my 2015 yarn club blog post here. I listed the yarn details as well as what month i picked the yarn and linked to my ravelry project page and pattern where applicable... i will be doing the same here as well.
