Show Notes: “A Farewell to Blogger”

Moonrover Sheepshanks in “Momijigari,” thanks to Stephanie over at Hot Pink Socks “Ewes & Reviews.” Thank you so much, Stephanie!

And then I talked a bit about 2013’s crafting in review as well as resolutions for 2014.

♥ I knit/crocheted 34 projects including 2 adult sized sweaters for me and 4 Hitchhiker scarves–1 of which was my first handspund project ever.
♥ I learned to spindle spin and started dyeing yarn. (Shop will be coming in March 2014; keep an eye out for it.)
♥ I fell back in love with cross stitch thanks to the Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery and completed the Springtime Sampler, Summer Sampler, Dessert Sampler, and Halloween Spooky Samplers.
♥ Sewed purses, project bags, did a little quilting…many fabric related things.

2014 Craft Goals:
♥ Knitting- Participate in and complete Kate‘s personal sock club KAL. Knit 2-3 sweaters for myself out of stash yarn. Knit a bed blanket for my daughter and finish in a year.
♥ Spinning- Try to spin twice as much fiber as I acquire to stop stash from growing out of control–based on 3 5oz braids coming in this year, I’m aiming for 24-30oz spun. Purchase an e-spinner to help increase productivity, aid in plying, and help me spin larger quantities. Amanda wants some handspun sweaters!
♥ Cross Stitch- More Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery this year: Woodland Sampler, Winter Kawaii Sampler, and Autumn Sampler are all ready to go.
♥ Quilting/Sewing- Finished quilting the bed quilt upstairs. Work on a couple of quilted wall hangings. Make more bags for myself, to gift, and maybe some to sell. Start learning to alter patterns and work on garment sewing.
