In case you didn’t notice, I’ve changed my banner. It was really difficult to do it, for I think I’m a little obsessive about Things being In Their Place… and well, I just figured today…so close to the new year, I’m ready for some changes.
Looking back to this post when it was so hot out that I was so drawn to blue, and had unknowingly posted five times in a row having blue as a main feature. I was decorating Emma with yarn towers, playing around with a camera and the cooling powers of blue, when it was over 100 degrees Fahrenheit outside . . .
(As it is now just after the winter solstice, I think it is interesting this post was just after the summer solstice.)
I believe I’m going to have some fun with yarn this coming year, in more ways than I have been. There’s no denying, yarn has gotten tangled up in my life in a way which has changed me (hopefully for the better), and I’m not kidding when I tell you that I wake each day thinking about something that yarn has to do with. Yarn is nothing less than a slow miracle for me.
I usually shirk new years resolutions, but this year I’m passionate about them! I want to get beneath the soil of things, yes of course, tending my garden to thrive, but metaphorically so too, in creative process and endeavoring from it. I am tempering my patience and my self-confidence like two razor sharp edges of a sword, and I am bettering myself through knitting. I so want to round up what little experience and confidence I have with pattern writing & design and put jets on the whole thing.
This morning I’ll admit to myself that I have come up with a few good ideas, and in less than a year have learned a lot. Well, there’s more to learn, more to knit, more to ‘math out’ and more to write. I will slowly inch along, with all of your presences & encouragement that ever-so-much appreciate, I really could not have progressed, nor continue further, without you. Thank you everybody, and here’s looking to a great year ahead in 2014.
What are your hopes and plans for the new year?
Hoping all that beautiful blue brings the rain!! …Looking forward to all those new patterns!
Yes, hoping for rain and fresh new grass shoots ! New ideas are so exciting when they start to stir….
I love all those blues. So much colour.
Isn’t interesting to look back and see how far you have come in just one year.
Yes, Lizzi, it is indeed ! I think more important than forecasting the next year’s intangibles, is to make a lasting account of the accomplishments of the recent year ~~ and finding positives about it. xx
