Happy 2013!

Happy New Year to this dead blog and to all who are still around to view it! Starting fresh and hoping to keep up with things this go round. Yes, it’s true there is no reason for anyone to believe I will keep up with it now, but today that’s what I’m planning on doing and I guess that’s better than nothing.

This my first post (might as well treat this as a new thing since my posts are so out of date by now) will be short and sweet, containing nothing but my two knitting-related resolutions for this the new year:

1. Finish up old WIPs. 2013, I’ve decided, will be the year that I start going through all those languishing projects (of which there are MANY) and finish them off. In order for me not to get too bored with this resolution, I will throw in a new project for every old WIP finished. This way I hope to accomplish at the minimum 6 new projects and 6 old ones, but if I have the time I might be able to pull off even more!

2. Get back to the knitting world. Through this blog, through Ravelry and through designing. I have missed knitting and talking about knitting and keeping up with knitting news. That being said, I have no qualms about admitting that the very thing that kept me away from all of this in 2012 may well keep me from being able to be where I used to be in 2011… but that’s okay. I am okay with this. Not only because I have to be, but also because it’s hard to not be okay with a face like this:

I hope everyone is having a wonderful New Year and that it is filled with yarny and crafty goodness!

  1. Hello! Glad to see your post. : ) It’s funny, I’ve been drafting a “return to blogging in 2013” post too; I miss it! Good luck with your WIPs – I think your strategy to work on a new project as a reward for finishing an old one is a great idea. Your little girl is adorable! What a darling grin she has. Happy New Year!

  2. She’s positively adorable! I can see why you wouldn’t be knitting or blogging. Good luck with plowing through your WIPs. Hoping to be inclined to do the same!

  3. Nice to see you in my blog reader again! How are the pups? I can tell your little one is perfect! I hope you have a great 2013. Good luck with the knitting and designing! I’m sure it’s a challenge now.

  4. She is growing up to be prettier everyday. Looking forward to seeing you at fling. Don’t beat yourself up about ignoring things. Kids come first!! These days are important to their development. You can always knit later.

  5. Awww, she’s a cutie pie! Welcome back to the blog! I hope that you find a way to knit more and design more in 2013. It took me a little bit to get back to knitting after having my son, also. It was baby steps for both myself and him to get a good balance. You will get there too!
