Happy New Year! As the year comes to a close, I’m taking a moment to pause and look back at what I’ve accomplished this year.
This year was a bit light on new patterns, but I released two previously published patterns – Laura’s Beanie and the Towline Hat – as individual downloads, with updates and new photography. I also had my first spinning article published in Spin Off Magazine, and made a presentation on sweater fit to the North Coast Knitting Guild via Zoom. I’ll be teaching this topic again as a class at Carolina Fiber Fest in 2023 (more on that to come).
Here are my three most-read posts in 2022:
- Picking Up Stitches for an Afterthought Thumb (an oldie, but goodie)
- Mending a Sweater Hem
- Managing Takeup When Spinning Fine Yarns
For 2023 I’ve set a goal to post more on this blog – I set a goal for at least 2 posts a month before I realized I’d already almost made that this year. You’ll probably see less of me on social media, so be sure and subscribe to my blog and newsletter for the latest updates. As I mentioned above, I’ll also be teaching some classes at Carolina Fiber Fest, and I’m currently working on my first shawl pattern, to be released in early March.
I hope 2023 brings you good health an lots of time for playing with fiber!
