If Only It Were This Easy

If I could erase parts of 2013 like this wave erases it…boy would that be nice and easy.

But no…that's not the case.  Instead of focusing on all that went wrong this year, I will focus on what went right with my knitting.  I did a lot more designing this year and it really has paid off.  Between my Fleckle Mitts and Just One More Cowl, I've had small successes (both patterns helped pay for Christmas in a lean year).

I also am writing and designing for Knit 123.  While my patterns haven't appeared in an issue yet, it's something to look forward to next year (I think April?).

I also started working in my LYS, Iron Horse.  It has been fun, interesting and has let me feel like part of a knitting community.  I get to knit samples for them and and I get to teach!

Some of my favorite projects that I knit this year (not my designs) are:







Last year I posted this line:
 I wish you a Happy New Year - 2012 is one that I don't care to repeat and I do hope that 2013 will be much kinder.  Happy New Year!

So here I go for this year:
I wish you a Happy New Year - 2013 is one that I don't care to repeat (in fact - GOOD RIDDANCE 2013) and I do hope that 2014 will be much kinder.  Happy New Year!
