I hope you had a wonderful holiday and sending best wishes for a fabulous New Year.
Like many people, I recently reflected on 2012. It was a very busy year for me (not so much in crafts, but in life). The amount that I knit and spun was less than I would have hoped for, but I am very thankful for what I was able to accomplish. Work was crazy busy, there was a lot going on with the family and we moved.
I reviewed my goals from 2012 and it is sad to see how little was finished. My goal list tends to be pretty lofty (aim high). Generally I spend time in November and December trying to finish up the goals, but that didn't happen this year.
2012 Knit Goals
Bridgewater - wip
Icarus - wip
Advent - wip
Forest Path - wip
Kimono - wip
Lena - wip
Jaywalker Socks - completed
When working on my 2013 goals I decided to add my 2012 list and my UFOs to the list.
2013 Knit Goals
Whippoorwill - completed
Noro Dream Stipes
12 Stripey socks
All Spun Up
Green with Envy
Spin for Socks
SSK Gales Art
Quilt Goals (Did I mention I started quilting? Must have needed another craft. LOL)
Pink and Blue
UFO / WIPs
Realized I have approx 24 UFOs so I joined the Finish it or Frog it with a group on Ravelry.
Stash Down was a major FAIL in 2012. I did realize I am a stress shopper and was very stressed last year. :) Must do better this year. I am not in any clubs right now. I am on the waiting list for two and have been for more than a year. Those will be the only two that I will join (when my number FINALLY comes up.) Both are well worth the wait. I also do a spinning group SAL and they are on my "allowed" list. The swap group is very bad for my destashing efforts and must be more careful in that thread.
Have I mentioned how much I LOVE Politically Incorrect.....
The Green Whippoorwill above is made with PI in I Got a Little Irish in me (lighter green) and Evil Hooker (darker green). Her yarn is amazing. But Wait.... There is more....
Her fiber is amazing as well. I may have indulged in a few batts recently. But Wait.... There is more.... Her Customer Service is FABULOUS.
Speaking of fiber....
In spinning, most of my time was spent on one project this year.
This beautiful Alpaca fleece. It is really hard to capture the beautiful color.
Sending you and yours Happy Thoughts and Best Wishes.
