I shared about my 2020 art quilts earlier in the week, and here I want to just year-in-review some of the non-art quilt things I worked on this year. I like having these look-back posts, they provide a chance to review what I've accomplished and a way to refine my artistic goals going forward.
I had more knitting and crochet projects than usual, including some that didn't make this list because they're not actually finished (still need blocking and blogging). I did a lot of knitting this year, and I feel like the increase in knitting is a direct response to COVID. Partly because staying home gave more time for knitting, partly because I knit on basic stuff pretty much constantly during zoom meetings, and partly because knitting felt like a creative outlet when I didn't have much mental energy for designing art quilts. I feel like I've learned a lot of new knitting skills this year too, and I look forward to more in future. This was also the year I took back up embroidery in a bigger way. Again it was something I did while home alone (more) and was something I could do on work zooms.
