Plans for 2013

I really only have two goals this year. I'd like to publish 18 patterns (up 3 from last year), and I'd like to try to reduce the stash a bit. I've found stash reduction difficult since I started designing full-time, but I know I have also gone yarn shopping just because I wanted to.  So the goals are:
1. Publishing up
2. Stashing down

The FOs will happen just because that is an important part of the design process. I do have a few WIPs laying about:
1. An afghan in a truly ugly color of Brown Sheep that I plan to overdye if I ever finish it.

2. A reknit of Litchfield to double-check something before I published the pattern

3. A lace weight cardi

4. A vest that only needs finishing

5. A super simple garter stitch triangle shawl meant to use up leftovers of Cascade 220

6. A reknit of FabergĂ© that I started for MadMay last  year

7. A cowl/wrap thing that was to be my mindless knitting for traveling

8. A Vice Versa scarf with different sized blocks

9. A throw-sized Teaberry

10. My first attempt at my latest sweater pattern-in-progress

11. A SSC in a pretty hand-dyed bulky that is my current mindless project

Most of these I will finish eventually. Designs in progress just always come first!
