Yes, I did it too: I made a list of goals for 2013. So shoot me ;)
I have no idea if I can do all of this in a year. It’s not really about that; it’s more a list of things I want to accomplish, EVER. Raising the bar? Yes. Aiming a little too high? Definitely! Wouldn’t aiming for the low-hanging fruit be better? Absolutely, but where’s the fun in that? ;)
So this is what my list looks like (minus a few things that I worry I might jinx if I tell you…):
1. Continue the weekly mandalas
Well, that’s a given really. I still have so much inspiration to make more and I continue to find amazing images (blog readers sometimes even send me images! how cool is that!).
2. Create more (free) patterns
Yes! I’m super inspired to create more awesome crochet patterns! I spent the days around the holidays filling my notebook with sketches and ideas, and I can’t wait to sit down and work them out so I can share them with you :)
3. Make printables
I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and I’ve got some cute ideas for this already :) I was thinking along the lines of gift tags, or checklists for knitters & crocheters to add to their WIP baskets? What you do think?
4. Finish ALL the WIPS! ;)
No really, I need to finish them before I can do anything else! Otherwise they’ll be forgotten as quickly as they were last year and end up in crochet limbo…
5. Learn continental knitting
After I finish my Color Affection Shawl (if I ever!) I want to teach myself to knit continental style, where you hold the yarn on your left instead of your right. It’s supposedly a lot quicker and if my knitting skills need anything, it’s speed!
6. Make a quilt
I’ve been pinning away on my Quilt Quilt Quilt board and there’s a lot of good stuff there! I have a sewing machine and some experience; surely I can make a small quilt?
See, my list isn’t all that difficult! It doesn’t even feature a weight-loss option, or a keep the office clean option…
Speaking of keeping the office clean, I *did* do some cleaning over the last week, and I found some FO’s that I never blogged about. Expect those items to be in the spot lights soon :)
I’m really looking forward to creating pretty things this year, and sharing it with you all!
