Happy New Year 2014!
Do you make resolutions? If so, may I recommend making at least one of them knitting-related? Resolve to learn a new technique, finish a certain project, tackle something big, join a Knitting Guild, or start your holiday knitting sooner this year.
As I write this and reflect on 2013, I am amazed at how the year turned out so differently for me and my knitting than I had planned. I started the year as a teacher and ended it as a designer. I started a Guild that took off and became much more than I dreamed it could be, thanks to the talents, vision and hard work of the knitters who joined. I had the privilege of teaching many people new knitting skills, and I was able to learn new skills that I can pass on to others in the coming months. I made some wonderful new friends, gained a couple of incredible minions, and traveled to exciting new knitting conferences. I designed some fun items that hope to be able to show you as they are published.
2013 was a wonderful year full of surprises, inspiration, and all manner of knitting love.
Today I will set some knitting goals for 2014, but I will stay open to possibilities that I haven't yet imagined and I encourage you to do the same!
May your new year be filled to overflowing with good things, great people, and much love!
