The rules: Anything you've queued prior to this year is game. Tag your qualifying projects with 'queue11' - and for added fun, write the original date of queue in the project notes. For the sake of anthropology, take stock right now and make a note of how many pages and projects you have in your queue before you begin this effort (feel free to leave said info as a comment here! I love a wildly unscientific experiment!).
Now, I've seen some people on Ravelry with some truly staggering and impressive queues. When you've got double-digits happening, you don't mess around (or, perhaps, you just queue any project that you think is cool, regardless of whether or not you think you'll actually knit it! Been there!). I am not anywhere near such impressive numbers - but I do have six pages of queue to work through, for a grand total of 169 projects.
- 20 projects are fingerless gloves, mittens, wristwarmers, and the like.
- 18 projects are hats
- 42 projects are socks
- 25 projects are toys
- 41 projects are sweaters (this is the category in which I expect the least amount of queue improvement)
- 23 projects are not tagged into a set (most of them are scarves or random household-type knits)
