Knitting in Review 2013
At the end of each year, I start to reflect on the resolutions I set for myself when the year started. It's easy for me to be disappointed for not fulfilling the goals I intended to achieve. I had some long lists and good intentions at the beginning of 2013, and I wasn't able to come close to completing the things I had hoped. Fortunately, being a blogger and taking pictures of all the projects I DID complete helps me to realize that I still managed to accomplish a lot. In fact, I decided that knitting and sewing needed to be broken into two posts, because there was too much to squeeze into one!
Mike wasn't the only member of the house to score a sweater in 2013. Dulce got a sweater too.
The only knit poor Danger received was his unicorn hat. He feels pretty left-out. 2014 is going be his year.
I added three staple sweaters to my closet at the beginning of the year. My Oolong, Grace, and Fargo have all seen a lot of action.
You know what I didn't knit this year? SOCKS! Only two pairs, if you count my Tardis socks.... and I don't. But, I really, really LOVE my Scott Base socks. So, that's something.
Also, I did my first knit along this year, which was immediately followed by a second! (And, a third, and probably a fourth, but that's a post for another day). I could write an entire post on the projects I've started and haven't finished. There are a lot(bummer). Still, I'm pleased with all the knits I produced during the 2013. And, while I didn't knit as much as I would have preferred, I did reach a milestone. Officially, I have ONLY hand knit sweaters! It's been a slow process and a long time coming, and it feels pretty fantastic! Realizing the first leg of my goal to have an entirely self-made wardrobe has me excited to continue progress on the rest!

WOO-HOO! They're all lovely and I'm jealous all around :)
Girl, you are my knitting IDOL. The work you do is just unbelievably (no, scratch that, bc I totally believe it) beautiful. Wish I was in Chicago so I could knit-along with you three ::sob::. Speak of which, I have been such a butt about commenting but I'm so loving your two knit-along sweaters. They're both so gorgeous and I'm impressed that you were able to coax multiple people into following (and completing!) a project with you. I love my fellow local knit-ladies, but someone needs to step up their game and knit some sweaters with me, argh! :)

You made SO MUCH GORGEOUS STUFF!!! this year! I think the Scott Base socks might be my favorite, but all those sweaters are so beautiful too.
