Originally I wanted to knit three of them this year, then six. That turned into eight. And now I think I am done. I’d love to know how many I’ve actually knit over the years. The numbers must be quite large now. I didn’t track it, sadly. I know I knit far fewer of them now than I used to though, as our tree is chock full of them. I still adhere to the rule, knit one for the tree and another for gifts. This year, 4 out of the 8 are going on our tree.
