2013 Round-Up

A lot happened last year. So I am going to bullet point some things and ramble about others.

The year that was 2013:

(in no particular order)

  • Picklesnot Designs became Loose Endings – over all hailed as the best move ever by everyone.
  • I attempted to write for Nanowrimo and learned something valuable by not writing.
  • My BIL was the victim of a Natural Disaster. As he often says , “A tornado came and picked a fight, tossed me around and then left.”  The outpouring of support from both friends and complete strangers to aide my family was simply amazing.
  • Only published one pattern. It is my highest sold pattern to-date.
  • Completed and gifted a most fabulous blanket.
  • Took several classes on Craftsy.
  • Worked/Taught classes at the Woolie Ewe.
  • Read 50(!) books. [Yes, I did in fact read 50 even if GoodReads does not think so.]
  • Saw and Listened to Neil Gaiman read!
  • Adopted Harley and found that I now I have a lap cat.
  • Went on  Cruise!
  • Reconnected with a friend via weekly Skype dates.

I am sure there is more. Oh so much more.

To expand a little on the books – here are a few of my favorites that I read in 2013:

  • Let’s Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson.
  • The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
  • Scarlet by Marissa Meyer

2013 was certainly a year of highs and lows. And there are certain things that I do wish didn’t happen. Overall though 2013 was a pretty good year.
