2012 was a significant year for me and my crafting, not only because I was able to get my first collection of patterns published, but also because I taught myself how to sew, which were huge in the personal growth and development experiences. I learned so much this year, both about knitting and sewing techniques, but also spent some time really thinking about that which provides me with joy and satisfaction. I am very introverted and I don’t tend to enjoy going out and being around lots of people, and I much prefer to spend my time alone, working on creative pursuits.
For 2013, my crafting goals are broad: keep learning and expanding skill sets, focus on creating what I want rather than what might be trendy, and really really try to knit and sew from the stash before purchasing more yarn and fabric.
Anyway, without further adieu, here is everything that I was able to finish in 2012, with knitting projects first and then sewing projects.

I am very excited about what 2013 will bring. I have spent this past week off from the Day Job in a “Crafty-cation” and have several finished knitting and sewing projects to show you.
