I started 2008 just wanting to take more time to craft and to work on improving my skills. I also became much more involved in the crafting community, through joining Ravelry,participating in two swaps and the Ravelympics, and starting this blog. Overall, I would call 2008 a rousing success.
The 2008 Tally:
1 Adult Sweater (Crossover Jacket)
1 Afghan (daffodil)
1 Pair of Socks of my own simple design
2 UFOs (but not for too much longer, hopefully)
I also ended the year with a valuable lesson learned – it is okay to frog a project that is just not right. I frogged two projects this year, a pair of socks and a sweater. I think I’ll definitely retry the socks at a later date on new needles that are more appropriate for the yarn, but the sweater is doomed to the frog pond forever, as I just don’t think that it is the right sweater for me.
I am excited with all that I’ve accomplished this year. For the next year, I don’t feel that I can set lofty goals. I foresee my biggest challenge for 2009 being fitting in crafting into my role of being a new mom. I guess we’ll have to see how well I do!
Happy New Year!
