2011: Year In Yarn
To ring in the new year, I thought I’d take a look back at some of the things I made/published in 2011. A choice few of these weren’t actually stitched in 2011, but, I’m still including them because that’s when they made their debut. You can click on the links below the collage if you’d like to see larger photos/more info.

Notable Yarny Things I did in 2011:
*Worked with the lovely team at Craftsy to produce two online crochet classes, Beyond Rectangles and Crafty Crochet Embellishments
*Published my second book, Little Crochet
*Had designs and articles published in Crochet Today, Interweave Crochet, Tangled, KnitCircus, Petite Purls and other magazines/web zines
*Had designs published in the following books: Simply Crochet, Knit Local, World of Geekcraft, and Knit Simple Knitting Workshops
* Taught a whole bunch of people to crochet (and a few to knit!)
* Got a rather cute but somewhat distracting dog, who I can shamelessly dress in crochet. Ahem.
My goal for 2012 is to keep on trucking, further explore self publishing, and most importantly, keep having fun doing what I do, rather than getting stressed out about trying to become a crochet pattern producing factory. Here’s to 2012!
