You could say I'm emboldened for having forged ahead with the Marin — and for actually meeting my 2012 knitting goals: three new items/techniques (baby booties, short rows, Fair Isle) and "12 in 2012." Forgive me the following Ravelry documentation; it's just that a dozen shawls seemed so unlikely a few months back in the frenzy of the move and new job.
What are my 2013 knitting goals? More venturing into that territory of new items and techniques. This year I'm tackling socks, mittens, and Fair Isle that's more than rudimentary. And since I acquired quite a bit of lovely yarn last year, including holiday gifts, I'm going to dive into my stash with glee. (Goal is to try to use up three stash yarns for each new purchase.)
