Year In Review: 2013

It's that time again! As I've done the last few many years sometime in December, it's time for a review of the year. I do it in words (the first sentence of the first post of each month) and in pictures (a favorite posted photo from each month) -- one is not necessarily related to the other.

January:

The last knitting I did in 2012 was a hexagon.

01-January-Houston-airport-terminal
February:

I quickly passed through all of the airport security lines without problem, retrieved my luggage and peeled off the last little bit of "Wisconsin winter" clothing along in the process (except for the leggings and compression knee-highs, which, you can be assured, I took care of ASAP), looking for familiar faces... which I did not see!

02-February-Dois-Irmaos
March:

Perfect morning to head to the beach!

03-March-Cook-in-Rio
April:

Oh. {Hi! Yeah. So remember me? I used to knit.}

04-April-baby-knitting
May:

Obviously, I finished this months ago!

05-May-Roasted-Asparagus-and-Shrimp
June:

On the first of June, my irises bloomed!

06-June-Wedding-Day
July:

I didn't finish them in time for the wedding.

07-July-Mack-Vick-Addy
August:

Here's what's happening for me . . . Right Now!

08-August-Ali-Vicki-Kate
September:

It was not a bad day to be at the market yesterday.

09-September-Wedding-Shawls
October:

When Ali messaged me a few weeks ago that she didn't have anyone available to work the market with me on a particular Saturday, my wheels immediately started in motion.

10-October-Farmer-Market
November:

Day 1. I haven't officially signed on (yet), but it seems a shame not to participate in National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) for the fifth straight year -- even though I'm crazy busy today and nothing is coming together on-the-fly quite as I'd like.

11-November-Chevron-Baby-Blanket-Purl-Bee
December:

While I could have drowned Ali with the handknits at her baby shower, I decided to include only the projects I've started *and* finished since learning about Zim!

12-December-Baby-Shower
* * * * *

I like how I stretched the posting of a mid-January week-long visit to Rio all the way into March! That's the way to make a vacation last!! I also travelled in '13 to Chicago and Door County with various of my girls, as well as get-aways to Milwaukee and Lake Geneva with Rusty.

Ali's wedding was the definite highlight of the year! It was so much fun -- and I guess, having just finished that little photo book, that I must like to stretch out and savor the good stuff. Ha.

The baby knitting sort of took over the second half of the year, and now I'm concentrating on hats while I wait for a baby to be born!

 

 

Comments

This post is a fabulous way to show how much joy was yours in 2013. I always enjoy seeing your recap and should do one of my own, although it wouldn't be nearly as interesting.

Exciting year! Lots of knitting, lots of family, lots of fun.

You had a wonderful year, full of family and love and some great traveling, too!

2013 was great! I can't even imagine what 2014 will bring! ;-)
