It’s been a little while since I’ve posted–I’ve been enjoying time with my children who are home from college, and have been putting regularly scheduled knitting projects on hold to make them some warm slippers to take back to school. Their friends are next. I really take a lot of pleasure in knitting for my kids and their friends–they appreciate the items and I feel like I’m enveloping them in love and warmth.
In perusing my Ravelry projects page, it looks like I completed 16 projects in 2013–including an afghan for my son to take to college, several scarves and cowls, and a sweater for my daughter. I also knit several projects that were sold in my Etsy shop, although I would have liked the number of projects sold to be higher than it was.
For 2014, I am committed to taking some Craftsy classes and hopefully the Craft Yarn Council Certified Instructors program so I can begin to realize my goal of incorporating knitting into my next career stage. I had hoped to take the leap in 2013, and to devote more time to preparing over the holidays, but it just hasn’t happened yet. I’m not giving up–I’ll use this forum to keep me on goal and I’m committed to reporting to you, my readers, about my progress. Help me stay motivated to realize my dream if you can!
Wishing a Happy, Healthy, productive and peaceful new year to all.
