creation nation new year’s resolutions

i’ve done pretty well on the list of works in progress that i posted last march:

  • pastel green baby afghan (crochet) – still working on it (i started this over 5 years ago and pick it up every once in awhile…it’s getting there!)
  • blue king size afghan (crochet) – frogged and gave the yarn to my mom
  • red, green, and black granny square afghan (crochet) – finished (and love it!)
  • grey cardigan (crochet) – finished, but dissatisfied with the final product
  • burgundy cowl scarf (knit) – finished, and made a matching earwarmer
  • blue and grey (will be) felted bag (knit) – still working on it

i’ve also put a major dent in my box of yarn – i’ve been pretty good about not buying any new yarn and using up what i already have. since it’s a new year, i thought i should set some goals to give my creations direction in 2013!

  • finish the two wip’s above
  • crochet a sweater that i actually like and wear!
  • begin work on t-shirt quilt
  • refinish the sewing table i bought at the thrift shop last summer
  • knit something more complicated than a scarf or hat
  • add some healthy, easy dishes to the recipe repertoire
  • improve my cookie, cupcake, and cake decorating skills

that will probably keep me pretty busy, eh?


About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
