January 1, 2013
Yesterday I put together a mosaic of my knit and crochet projects from 2012, and I was astonished by how much I was able to accomplish despite our move this summer. There are still a few knits that I left out of the mosaic because they are gifts for people who haven't received them yet, but I averaged 2-ish projects per month. Not bad!
2012 was my first full year as a knitter (I started in June 2011), and I can honestly say that I've fallen in love with the craft. There are times when it gets frustrating, or when things don't turn out the way I want them to, but I find myself really happy with my work more often than not, and the satisfaction that comes from creating something functional and beautiful never gets old. In the coming year, I plan to take my knitting to the next level with socks and sweaters. And if my Ravelry queue/favorites list is any indication, I foresee a serious cardigan addiction.
Anyway, I know a lot of people roll their eyes at New Year's Resolutions, but I really like to take advantage of the start of a new cycle to focus my thoughts and make some realistic goals for the coming months. I'll make a more detailed post on that a little later this week.
Happy 2013 everyone!
