I'm getting the ball rolling on some end of the year things and decided to post this now rather than later. I love having a record of what has caught my fancy over the previous year.
Year in Review 2012
1. your best FO of the year:
Color Affection--I love the way that turned out.
2. best FO of the year made by a blog you link to:
Truthfully I haven't been reading many knitting/stitching blogs in the last 6 months.
3. best yarn you tried:
Twisted Fiber Art Tasty--it's an amazing wool/cashmere blend.
4. best book/mag/pattern of 2012:
Push by Chalene Johnson
Oxygen, Vogue Knitting, Country Living, Where Women Create, and People
Simple Skyp Socks
Runs for Cookies
5. best new technique or gadget you tried in 2012:
My To Do list app on my phone, I would be lost without it.
6. top 5 inspirations--what five things inspired you the most over the past year?
**My daughter--she is growing up to be such an incredible young lady and she's been bitten by the fitness bug just like her mom ;)
**My son--he is growing and changing right before my eyes, he has a good heart, and he always makes me laugh
**Ravelry--my 'go to' place for knitting inspiration
**Pinterest--it's a huge time suck but wow can you find some good stuff there.
**Runs for Cookies--that blog is inspirational every day. Katie is my hero!
7. designer who most amazed and inspired you throughout the year.
I don't know that I have a specific designer who has stood out for me this year. I'm all over the place with my likes and dislikes lately.
8. Challenges for 2013--what's next for you and your blog?
**for my blog--I'm going to shoot for at least two posts per month. Things have gotten pretty hectic around the house and that has taken up most of my time--leaving crafting time to a minimum unfortunately.
**for me--continue to improve my fitness and my diet, continue to improve my mind, and continue to be mindful of how my action/inaction affects those around me.
**start and finish a quilt. . .possibly Swoon or a T-shirt quilt
**continue to try and find balance in my life.
