You've Arrived At Your Destination

Rearview Mirror - 2014 Goals
Bring back old WIPs - of the 12 FOs this year, 3 were old WIPs, but the Mario Blanket should count for quite a few!
More socks for me - 3 new pairs added to the sock drawer
Thoughtful with yarn purchases - I did well up until recently
Expand my skills
The one I couldn't remember was to knit more sweaters for myself - finished 2 and cast on 3 more

Trip Planner - 2015 Goals

Knit through my 30 (!!) WIPs - tackle them one at a time to chip away at them
Knit from stash
Knit from pattern library
More socks for Carlos
Sweater or vest for Carlos
Finish cross stitch projects

Road Map to Achieve 2015 Goals
Search within myself - a theme for me both inside and outside my crafting life
Shopping from my WIPs, stash and pattern library

Road Trips
CT Sheep and Wool
Stitch n Pitch
Stitches East (which, sadly, has been cancelled for 2015 in Hartford)
Rhinebeck

Thank you to all of you for a wonderful 2014 and a great year for the podcast despite the bumpy ride
