It’s the beginning of a new year. A great time to reflect back on the past and decide what I’m going to continue to do and what needs to change.
In many ways 2015 was amazing.
One of the most amazing things to happen was becoming a moderator for The Yarniacs Podcast Ravelry group. It has given me so much joy. The group is filled with wonderful people from all over the world. I consider many of them to be friends; I only hope I get to meet them IRL someday. I had no idea when I started to knit that it would open my world and heart so much.
I purchased a spinning wheel at SAFF in November. Almost 4 years to the day after I learned how to knit and fell down this wonderful rabbit hole. It’s a gorgeous Schacht Cherry Matchless. I doubt I’ll ever outgrow it. Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s the only wheel I’ll ever own. Eventually I need to get a travel wheel since this can’t go with me if I’m flying.
And… I knit my first sweater. I bought the sweater quantify of Malabrigo Rios at A Stitch in Time in December 2012. It tried to become 3 different sweaters before I finally decided to knit Joji Locatelli‘s Worsted Boxy.
I love it so much I almost immediately cast on the fingering weight version. I think this style sweater fits my lifestyle perfectly. It’s a ‘better than sweatshirt’ sweater that is so cozy. If fact, I’m almost done with the fingering weight one and am thinking about doing another one with a grey gradient set. Hmm…
That’s enough for now. I’m still sorting thru my 2016 goals / theme.
