Happy New Year

Wishing you all the best in the New Year.

In 2013 I had wonderful crafting adventures.  I was fortunate enough to go to Spring Fling in April and Taos in October.  Learned to weave in the fall.  Taught several spinning and knitting classes.  Took Maggie's beginning spinning and what a difference that made.  Participated in Tour de Fleece and Spinzilla.  The year end totals - Knit 13,572 yards and Spun 16,584 yards.  What a HUGE difference in my spinning.  I was also luck enough to get into three fiber clubs - BeeMiceElf, Southern Cross Fibre and Hello Yarn.

I had a goal of 12 stripy sock and completely failed.  Only made three pair, however, I was able to make 12 shawls.  Out of the Twelve shawls, four were handspun.  Maybe if I set the goal of 12 shawls this year, I will complete the socks.  LOL

I am so grateful for all my crafty and Ravelry friends.  They are truly awesome.  Thank you!!!

Kicking the new year off, Hung out with the Romi Studios group and the first FO of 2014 is the Fairy SnowCap by Rosemary (Romi) Hill in Malabrigo Worsted.  It is not blocked yet and I haven't made the PomPom, but it is bound off.  WooHoo.

This year I will be hosting the Designer SKAL in the Spin A Shawl group.
I am very excited.  There are four AMAZING designers lined up.

We kicked off the January - March SKAL with Aquamarine by Ágnes Kutas-Keresztes
Her shawl is amazing

I knit the shawl with Handspun.  Southern Cross Fibre Polwarth in Timeless and Quarry.


After the epic fail for the last two years on goals, I decided not to set them this year.  For some reason, when there is a goal, I want to do everything except that.  So, I am going to be nice to myself and just enjoy crafting.

Hop your new year is filled with all the happiness life has to offer.
