If you're reading this in an RSS reader, you may have seen a ton of old posts show up as "new" in your reader. I'm sorry about that, it's a side effect of having moved my blog from wordpress.com! It should only happen once and then you should be good to go with only new content in your reader.
2013 was a strange year for me. It feels like I've spent the last 6+ months frowning and worrying, and I'm honestly sick of it. I'm not sure how to change this but I know that recognizing the problem has got to be part of the solution. Right?
In terms of knitting and crafting in general, 2013 was one of my least productive years. I think I finished maybe 4 knitted items this year, and only maybe 2 quilts. My crafting and hobbies/interests always behave cyclically like this, so I'm not too worried about the downturn, but I'd love it if I started being on a high point again with the creating. I'm always happier when I've got projects I'm working on!
Speaking of which, in the last week or so I've done more knitting than I have in months. Both were "necessity" knits: a new hat for me and a new sweater for Arnold. Here are instgrams of each:
I'll try to write about each in the next few days. I know I've been a terrible blogger recently, but I do post on Facebook and Instagram a bunch. If you miss hearing from me, why not join me over there?
