Since I started knitting again, I've been mostly making cowls, shawls, scarves and blankets. So, for 2013, I had a knitting goal -- try a few new techniques / items. I kept the list short and sweet as I knew I wasn't going to put the other knitting on hold. And, I know me. Here's what I started with and where I am:

Both my cables and stranded colorwork require much, much more practice. But I look forward to it :) The socks: coming soonish. I have the pattern in mind and even have the yarn for it. I'm just having so much fun with this relatively new hobby that I’m going in too many directions at once: looking at patterns, yarn, other people’s lovely creations, buying, planning, dreaming and even a little bit of actual knitting! But I’m enjoying every minute of it.
Now, off to do some knitting :)
