I made no New Year’s Resolutions. But I always use the start of another 12 months to review life and the universe around me – knitting no exception. I am ashamed to say that two out of my three WIPs from last year have been “discontinued”. Frogged or ripped back to basic yarn. Although one of them did become this:
In addition, I have created a few more WIPs – the one that is making me feel the most guilty is a lacy wrap which is precisely half done. I’m struggling to pick it up to finish and yet it has already absorbed so much effort and the yarn is not only beautiful but a little on the pricey side too! Plus I’m still totally in love with both the patten AND the colour of the yarn. Please send me patience to finish it!
I am however really pleased with what I did finish during 2013 so I’m not dwelling on my WIPs too much. I am quietly patting myself on the back for creating patterns, starting and completing many knitted and crochet projects, teaching a little whilst working full time, changing jobs twice and raising my family.
All the best for you and your knitting in 2014.
