Wrapping up 2011, looking forward to 2012.

Once again its time to take a look at what I've accomplished in the last year and set some goals for the new one.

Sadly, looking back on last year's goals, I realize how few I managed to meet.... This is especially sad since I did so well with my 2010 goals! But, frankly I'm going to cut myself a little slack since a whole lot of my lack of productivity can be blamed on Harley, my wonderful wonderful pup who came into my life in June. He is a joy, but also a spare-time-destroyer, which affects my knitting/blogging. In 2010 I managed to churn out 25+ projects, 2011 came to a close at only about 15, and my blog with similarly fewer posts. BUT. I will not let this setback get me down! 2012 is going to be my best year yet! Here are my goals:

1) Finish a sweater. I have a few half knit sweaters lying around. At least one must be completed!
2) Build a website. This was a goal from last year! Perhaps a certain someone will help me out and build me one (or help me build one) for Valentines Day. :)
3) Knit another original design and publish it. My Tinsel & Garlands pattern is available for sale, and in a few queues on Ravelry, but so far, nobody has bought it.
4) Knit away at my stash! I really need to stop buying yarn.
5) Blog at least twice a month. I had 30 posts in 2010 and only 19 in 2011! What's up with that?!
6) Actually begin knitting swatches for the Master's Program. Yup. Never started it. *sigh*

Happy New Year everyone! May it be happy and productive!
