End of year

As we get to the end of the year, I get reflective. I like to have goals so that I have a direction. I'm getting better at focusing individual projects that I've started but I still have built up years worth of UFOs. So...current projects include:

Beaded Flower - amaryllis
Beading - ?
Knitting (large) - Frost Flowers & Leaves Shawl
Knitting (small) - Climbing Lace Socks
Spinnning - something on each wheel and a spindle

I also took a "flash my stash" picture tonight

So... I'm very close to finishing up the pair of socks and I may be able to get through that by the end of the year (yes, in 2 days). I'm also very close to finishing up the fiber I have on Suzie and plying goes quick so I can empty off that wheel. I'll probably finish spinning up what's on the spindle on Suzie.

I need a small break from the amaryllis but there's not much left to be done, okay well half. And if I take the metro to work more, I can work through more socks.

Also, the goal for the year is to reduce the size of the stash so that it can all fit on the full sized bed.

I also want to spin through one of the Socks That Rock bags of fiber.

That's a big stack of yarn. Mine is "neatly" packed away, and I feel like it would take more effort to get it all out. Although, there's a lot of stuff that's not in ravelry, and I wish it was. Maybe that will slowly be my 2012 goal.

I had fun with my own Self Imposed Sock Club in 2011, although I only finished 6 pairs (two more half done). I decorated paper bags for each month, then Rebecca and I swapped bags - she put my yarn/pattern in a bag (I matched yarn to pattern, she matched to month). Then once a month we'd give each other back one of our bags.
