I never know exactly how to go about doing these kinds of posts. My list-oriented, organizational brain goes all batty. Do I list accomplishments by month? By category of project/event? Do I talk about key high-points or low points? Goals met and unmet? I understand that I stress about silly things.
January: Knit socks. Knit more socks. Drank Tea. Posted family holiday pictures.
February: Dyed Yarn. Sewed two dresses. Designed an mini mitten knitting pattern. Took tons of Bebe pictures.
March: Knit more socks. Went to the Renaissance Festival. Bebe turned one (and more pictures)! Embroidered stuff.
April: Knit more socks (sense a recurring theme?), also some socks. Embroidered more stuff.
May: Socks. Discovered Instagram. Started drawing again. Embroidered something else. Released an embroidery pattern. Knit more socks.

October: Painted more. And then some more. Did calligraphy. Knit some socks. Attended a dyeing symposium. Bebe!
November: Blogged every day. Knit some naughty socks, and some not so naughty ones. Knit the Bebe a cardigan. Watched a play. More Bebe pics. Sewed the Bebe a new fall wardrobe. Did some from-life sketches. I buy lots of tea. Thanksgiving! I get really tired of blogging every day.
December: I knit socks. Surprise, surprise. I won a blog award! More embroidery. We had a Hobbitfest. I made cupcakes. I do more life drawings. Bebe likes brick walls. I spin yarn, and, of course, knit socks. I turn 31. Homemade marshmallows. Christmas!
Also, you guys. I knit 19 pairs of socks this year. NINETEEN. Pay no attention to the single sock, and the fact that there’s only 18 pairs pictures. Bebe’s pair were on her feet.
