I’m a little late in writing my 1 year anniversary post – I was traveling in Germany, and I was pretty jet-lagged when I got back. I’ve recovered now, so I wanted to give a few thoughts on how my year of blogging has been. My first post on this blog was on November 28, 2016. My original goal was to write a post once a week. There are 52 weeks in the year, and I wrote 40 posts. So, I wrote a post about 77% of the time. That’s not bad! I’ve really, really enjoyed it so far. It’s so rewarding to see my progress, to keep track of yarn stores I’ve been to, and to have an excuse to take nice pictures of the things I’ve made. Having a project I worked on all year (my block-a-month afghan) was also really fun.
I also enjoyed taking pictures of a few pieces I’d finished longer ago. I hadn’t worn some of them for a while, but revisiting them, sometimes reblocking them, and creating an outfit to photograph them in really made me appreciate them.
I also finished my first two knit garments! And I’m working on my third!
My goals for the next year:
- Continue to post ~once a week
- Make another afghan
- (Potentially) Revamp the website
- Participate in a few knit/crochet-alongs
I also thought I’d share my current WIPs that I’d like to finish up soon (hopefully when I have a lot of extra knitting time over the holidays).
- Elibelinde sweater
- Oblagon shawl
- Block-a-month afghan
- Gabrielle tunic
- Secret Christmas present (more info after the holidays!)
I think I’d like to have these things finished by when I get back from my holiday traveling in early January. Sooooo we’ll see how that goes.
Anyways, having this blog has been great so far! I’m excited for the next year.
