January in a Nutshell

Just like the holidays, January flew by in a flash.  Here's a recap of what happened around here during the first month of 2013.

New Feature: 52 Forms of Fungi

I started a new challenge for the year -- knitting a different type of fungi for every week of 2013.  Check out the ones I posted this month:

Introduction  ||  Form #1  ||  Form #2

DIY: I shared a tutorial on how to knit your own silver mushrooms (from 52 Forms of Fungi #1) and turn them into pendants for a necklace!

Finished Projects:  I finished up my cozy Big Herringbone Cowl, made with Malabrigo Worsted yarn.

Inspiration:  I posted about the Blue Trees art installation that I saw in Sacramento last fall.

Mentions:  My Decomposition series was featured on Knit Hacker!  Way cool.

Reflection:  I looked back at the many milestones of 2012 with a highlights post and a day to day photo post.

In the Works:  I shared a little bit about a new collaborative project I'm working on (involving those little succulents up there) and a little about things that make these dark, drab days of winter a little bit brighter:

One  ||  Two  ||  Three

Looking back, I'm already happy with how this year is going.  I've got my hands in a couple of other things that I can't share about just yet, also.  February is looking promising!
