As I write this post, we are having a beautiful Christmas break, staying with my folks in the West Country. This time last year I was manically finishing off the last patterns for Cute Crocheted Animals. I am so very grateful that many of you love this book and it has turned out so well. I am now working on my next book and in someways I feel nostalgic for making new clothes for my little animal collection in the book. Perhaps when I have written the patterns for my new book I will look at Cute Crocheted Animals with new eyes and dream of new patterns.
When I look back at the photos of 2016 – colour dominates. Little obsessions can be found in the amongst the commissions. Simple baby toys. Shawls. Penguins. Pink and Red. Pom-poms.
Keep a record of everything I make – this has slipped this year
Keep looking and spotting
Make notes of new ideas
Write down the yarn I use in my notebook
Dream big dreams
Have creative fun
Compliment my hero or people who inspire me.
I have many more personal goals that don’t or won’t fit on this page – but the abiding rule is to be ‘thankful’. Thank you if you have enjoyed and commented on the blog this year. I am looking forward to a new creative year.
