2012 - The year of the purposeful loss

2011 was the year of sad losses. I lost my beloved Grandmother very suddenly in May. I lost my good mental health as a result, but an amazing counsellor and being kind to myself brought me back.

But I gained a fabric stash and a sewing machine from my talented Grandmother. My sewing skills went from non-existent to being able to make my own project bags and purses :) Thus I gained a new skill and a new stash to buy things for :)

2012 will be the year of intentional, purposeful losses.
I have the old cliche of losing weight. Bad mental health equalled mass comfort eating!
My knitting stash has grown and needs reducing a little.
I have no focussed knitting goals, I just want to make what I want to make. But I would like to make myself a pair of socks at some point :)

On an unrelated note, I also want to buy less cheap clothes (Primark has been my best friend) and start investing in more expensive, classic pieces which are hopefully more ethical, while saving me wardrobe space!
