Looking back at past year of the HYS blog has become a part of my new year’s eve tradition. It’s another way to measure the past year: 175 blog posts, a parade of new yarns, products, books, and patterns, a steady stream of knit and crochet magazines. The best part by far, however, is revisiting the “show and tell” posts, where I share photos of finished projects made in yarns from our shop. I scrolled through absolutely all of them last night, remembering and admiring them; here are a few of the many amazing projects you made and shared with us in 2013.
The blog may sometimes make the shop look like it’s filled with one enticing new thing after another (and I can’t lie: it is!), but from my perspective, this and every year at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop has been filled with one amazing person after another. I’m daily inspired, encouraged, surprised, and impressed by the knitters, crocheters, weavers, spinners, felters, dyers, and designers I meet at the shop. Thank you all for supporting us and sharing your projects and ideas with us–happy new year, everyone!
