It's time to look back at the last year and remember all the things that made up 2008. Some were happy, some were sad and some where somewhere in between. I lived through another year of cancer with my husband, suffered the death of a great friend, the births of many beautiful new babies, gave up diet coke, became a PMP, and saw the election of new president.
I traveled to Philadelphia, Rhode Island and Cape Cod, Bryce Virginia, and Poughkeepsi, NY, saw Duran Duran, and walked in Light the Night.
I went to many art and craft events:
Maryland Sheep and Wool, Rhinebeck and Homespun Yarn Party, Visionary Arts Museum, Yarn Harlot, Ravelry Party, Stitch and Pitch in DC and Baltimore, Artscape, Smithsonian Folklife Festival, The Mannings Spinning Festival, and Art Yarn Spinning with Jacey
I joined a sketchbook exchange, made silver jewelry out of clay and went on some photography outings with friends.
And who can forget the knitting! I even designed a few patterns of my own this year.
It was fun looking back at the past year and all of my "phases". I definitely went through a lace phase, a sweater phase and a colorwork phase with the most recent being a cowl phase! I knit 10 cowls in December!
Who knows what next year will bring, but I am looking forward to finding out.
One of my goals last year was to do more art and drawing - I think the sketchbook exchange has allowed that goal to be met. Next year I hope to learn to weave and learn more about sewing clothes. Anyone else have any goals for 2009?
I turned 33 this year too!
Happy New Year!
