Corner View- Out with the old, in with the new!

January- "New Beginnings" Shawl - Shawl number one of 12 Shawls in 2012

Welcome back, Corner View! We took a little holiday break. Our theme today is "Out with the Old, In with the New". I pondered several different subjects I could have talked about, like how I changed my eating habits last year and how I plan on losing more weight this year. I might have pondered family issues, but they are just too complex right now, and frankly, you probably just don't EVEN want to know...
So, in keeping with the name of this blog, "Crochet Renee'", I thought I would blog about what's going to be new this year in my crochet life. I blogged here about this some already, but thought I would tempt you with a sneak peak of next month's shawl of "12 Shawls in 2012", which I am designing and writing throughout the year. They are all going to be crocheted. Perhaps sometime in the future, I will design some knitted shawls, but for now, I am gonna stick with the hook, because I want to show just how gorgeous crochet can be!
I am calling it "Chocolate Covered Strawberries" in honor of one of my favorite Valentine's Day treat!
Watch for a different shawl each month. If you have any ideas of themes for names of shawls in the coming months, leave me a comment!

Corner View is a weekly appointment with bloggers all over the world, hosted by Francesca over at Fuoriborgo. Visit her to see links to CV's all over the world!

Thanks! I am going to endeavor to stay at least a month, preferably two, ahead.

Beth said...

Lovely. This is a wonderful goal and each month you'll end up with something you can wear! Cool!
I enjoyed this theme--thank you!

Thank you, Beth!

The best part is this year's goals can become next year's pattern-a-month calendar! Love the colors of February's shawl - I think we share the same sweet tooth :o)

"Out with the Old, in with the New" can relate to LOTS of things...

Awesome blog Sis! Love you!

I have a little girl who's requested a New Beginnings shawl! :) I stopped by the yarn stall at the market today, but I found nothing inspiring - it will take a while to adjust back to very limited choice.

Ooh, think of the colorfol result at the end of the year - all those shawls, spread out in the wind, cheering you on.

I salute you for your goal. Doable, and creative.
