2012: Year in Review

Tomorrow is the last day of 2012.  Last year on December 30, 2011 I wrote an entry about my crafting goals for 2012.  How did I do?  Let’s take a look.

  • Learn to do cables.  Yup! 
  • Learn to use a Turkish drop spindle.   I did!
  • Learn to read a chart, a knitting chart, that is.  I didn’t learn lace charts, but I can do color charts for intarsia and Fair Isle now.
  • Try my hand at more complex pattern writing.  I only did one, and I think I did ok.
  • Learn to turn heals on a sock.  I’ve done a few pairs now.  Here’s one example.
  • Knit more sweaters.  Hey, remember Bob, as one example?
  • Learn to sew!  Nope.  Really didn’t do much on this one.
  • Take a class to learn a new technique, like Magic Loop.  I think I managed that with learning Fair Isle and intarsia.  I will learn Magic Loop soon, though.  The only class I took last year was the Wingspan class, I believe.
  • Revisit learning how to crochet.  Oh, yeah.
  • Get a Knook kit and see how it works.  Didn’t do this, either.  The Knook was more of a passing interest, I guess.

I don’t think I did that bad, as goal-meeting goes!

I want to wish you all a happy and healthy 2013.  Happy New Year!  Time to go and think up some new goals now.
