I also wanted to point you towards a fun blog party I participated in in March. It was called Knitting and Crochet Blog Week. For one week you posted about a topic they planned for each day. It was a lot of fun! I was able to post some of my first projects when I started crocheting and other fun stuff. Here are my posts…
Day 1: A Tale of Two Yarns
Day 2: Skill + 1UP
Day 3. Tidy Mind- Tidy Stitches
Day 4: Where are they now?
Day 6: Something to aspire you
I loved doing this! I hope they do another one this year
Phew… what a year! I can’t believe all the finished projects I have made. I also can’t believe all the WIP projects I didn’t finish. Going into 2012, I don’t really have a lot of specific goals. No big plans for the shop, no big projects in mind. Just some ideas floating around in my head and finishing some WIP projects. I do want to start knitting more. I hope to improve with my skills and maybe someday knit a pair of socks! For now I’ll stick to pot holders and a simple blanket, which I started last night. That may have been a mistake.
I also want to give a HUGE thank you to all of you awesome readers! I love reading all of your sweet comments and emails. The blogging community is amazing to me. I am thankful to be in such a creative and awesome community of crocheting, knitting and other creative things. You guys are the best! Maybe this year I can do some more giveaways.
In April 2012 I will have been crocheting for two years. I look forward to improving my skills and just learn more each time I pick up my hook.
So here’s to another year full of crocheting, knitting and maybe some sewing!
