It's Knit and Crochet Blog week here at Knit Luck. Thanks to Eskimimi knitters and crocheters are all blogging about the same topics in celebration of our beloved craft. You can see yesterday's post here, or check out our participation from last year.
Today we are supposed to imagine what kinds of achievements we will make in the next year in our knitting in time for next year's Knit and Crochet Blog week. But first, I want to look back at last year.
Last year I was using Knit and Crochet Blog week to give the Knit Luck blog another try. I have been writing Knit Luck since 2009, with some interruptions to have babies. Until last year I was unable to be as consistant as I wanted to be in my blogging. Once I completed Knit and Crochet Blog Week I was able to develop a routine with my blogging and focus more on my personal knitting instead of knitting-related gossip. I was also inspired to start writing guides about knitting things I was passionate about, like interchangeable knitting needles, and gifts for knitters.
Knitting Wise I did a lot of sock knitting and worked on the mitered block blanket and coped with the diminishing rib cardigan disaster. It was a lesson to pick myself up after frogging a 80% done sweater, but now we're nearling 70% done on a much better cardigan that I can't wait to knit. But that's all last year.
For next year, I want to finish my cardigans, finally weave in the ends and the edging on the blanket and knit my christmas socks. I think that's enough for now. As for knit blogging, I'm hoping to make more connections with other knit bloggers and have started to by doing Year of Projects and Yarn Along. I'm hoping to spend a little more time on Twitter. But you know the number 1 thing I need to do is join a knitting group, or start one. Also I want to give Knit Watcher another try. It's a Blog Along for Fridays where you share what you're watching and knitting.
What are you hoping to achieve next year?
