At least I spent less and acquired less this year. Sure wish my knitting totals had been higher. I can take solace in the fact I bought less than I knit this year. Last year? Not so much.
Goals for 2015? I try not to make them, because I never keep them. I always endeavor to knit only for me, but that falls by the wayside very soon into the new year. So, no resolutions. I will just try to be true to my knitting and stay the course with my Library Challenge, to knit from the patterns or books I have on hand and not buy new patterns or books. I will call it a success if I knit at least 1 item from my pattern stash.
So, what’s you year in review look like and how are you looking to the future?
