So…my proudest accomplishment of 2007 and something I would like to accomplish in 2008?
In 2007, knitting wise, my proudest accomplishment would be the cable and lace sock pattern. I’m proud of that — it felt like an accomplishment!
In terms of family…I’m so very proud of how this family has drawn together and how we’ve supported each other through this uproar we are experiencing. It hasn’t been easy and the children especially have been amazing. (Don’t know if this is really one of my ‘accomplishments’ but I like to think so since I’ve been the primary caregiver!)
What do I ‘wish’ for 2008?
I wish to continue to design and improve in that. I would love to learn how to grade patterns and try designing something more complex.
This is hard! Trying to think of what I really want to accomplish in ’08.
I’d like to spend more time with the children…I’d like to get them a lamb in the spring, to raise and keep (no we’re NOT eating the lamb – childhood trauma for another day) now that we will be at the farm.
We have a piano, which is moving with us…I love that piano, it represents more than just what it is to me. I’d like to teach myself to play better (played accordian! as a child so keyboards aren’t totally foreign) and make it a part of my day to day life. I’m good with basics, note reading, etc…definitely need to learn a lot though. I have a couple lesson books which I will work through 🙂
I’d like to learn to spin. I’m not sure why, but I really really want to!
I’d like to be more physically active. I’m planning to build an ice rink in the back yard there…lots of space. I enjoy winter sports more than summer sports so I’d like to spend more time outdoors this winter.
I would like to find a way to earn some money, doing what I do. Which leaves me with the crafts, etc. This has been a dream for a while. In this new place, there may be new opportunities.
Have an excellent day!
