WOW! This is the last day of the knitting and crochet blogging week and I have done it 🙂 I have written a blog post of some sort everyday for a week. Phew. I am quite tired but SO pleased I have done it.
Today we have been set the challenge of looking forward to this time next year:
One year from now, when the 5th Knitting & Crochet Blog Week rolls around, where do you hope your crafting will have taken you to? What new skills, projects and experiences do you hope you might have conquered or tried?
Before I address this I first wanted to go back to last year where we were asked something similar and I set myself some targets. I have never returned to these and so thought that now might be a good time to do this (Should you wish to read the full post it is here):
1. To be more effective and further develop my understanding around Facebook and Twitter.
I had only been blogging for a couple of months this time last year and I was struggling to get to grips with these. I am not sure that I will ever stop learning but I have got the basics (or so I think!)
2. To set up an e-shop to sell my jewellery.
Well no! Failed on that one and so will push this forward to this year. I have started I promise 🙂
3. Make a beaded crochet rope necklace by the beginning of the summer holidays!
I have done this but not by the time I set myself!!
So on to this year:
1. Set up the e-shop!
2. Keep challenging myself:
I enjoy doing new things – sometimes too much (the bee) flitting from one thing to the next. I cannot give a specific list because things have a habit of cropping up out of no-where. I would like to make some socks (I have a pattern from feelgoodknitting that I won doing a treasure hunt!!) and I would also like to learn how to knit 2 at once. Which brings me to another part of this which is to keep looking outward. I have found so many awesome blogs through this knitting and blogging week that I had no idea existed. I have this ‘silly’ rule that if I follow a blog I really want to be able to do it properly, read each post and interact. The trouble is the more I find, the more I want to follow that takes more and more time! Anyone have any answers – PLEASE?
So there we have it. Nothing very exciting – more reminders so I don’t get stuck in a rut (something that is so easy to do). Oh yes, one more thing:
KEEP BELIEVING IN MYSELF!
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday which includes some crafting time 🙂
