This year was heavily productive, both personally and in my knitting. I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology focusing on Child Development and Applied Behavior Analysis. Four months after graduating, I was accepted to Kaplan's graduate program and started coursework toward a master's in ABA. My hubby was accepted to URI to complete his bachelor's degree in psychology too (which is really really exciting). We survived one child starting kindergarten and another starting high school (barely, in both cases). My car died and had to be donated. I bought a bike, and then left it sitting in the bike shop all summer long, lol. Alex finally got to start at Meeting Street and we've seen some great improvements in his behavior.
Meanwhile, where yarn is concerned, I knit much more this year than I realized. I completed 42 of 46 projects this year, including four adult sized sweaters, a pair of knee-highs, several mittens and handwarmers, two Christmas stockings, and more hats than I can count. I published six independent designs and had one published by Interweave. I had two other designs accepted by another magazine, to be published next year. I participated in my first Steven West knit-along, and I started my first Jared Flood pattern. Overall, it's been in interesting knitting year and I'm very much looking forward to seeing what 2013 brings. I've got several designs planned for next year and I'm looking forward to knitting more patterns from other knitters. My goal this year is to try to have more fun, and hopefully, to finish my Beekeeper's Quilt :)
And now, as a reward for sticking around this post, here are some photos of stuff from this year.
