2011 Project Roundup and Goals for 2012

Looking at all the the images of the projects I completed in 2011 I'm starting to think that it was a pretty productive year.  I completed 31 separate projects and started quite a few more that will be completed in 2012 (one can only hope).  I continued to knit and crochet, but also learned the basics of weaving towards the end of the year with 16 knitted projects, 12 crochet, and 3 weaving. 

As for my crafty goals for 2012, I would like to learn more about weaving and continue that on my new 25" Schacht Flip Loom.  I'll shares pics of it later. It is already warped for a scarf and has about a foot of woven material completed on it already.   I'm taking an advanced weaving class in February, so I am very excited about that because I don't really know all my options with this loom although I suspect that they are many.  As for knitting and crochet I  want to tackle some larger projects like sweaters or shawls that will challenge me as well as create more items for charity so that my crafty habits help others rather than being selfishly motivated.

Well, that's about it for now.  I wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2012, even if it is a bit late, lol.
