Me too. So I just started next week's reading, I mean to go back and read but if I wait to catch up it's never going to happen.

Just found my next character name.

I have the book, never finished it. Never watched the movie. Maybe I will put the book back on my list for 2017.

Saw the movie before reading the book. Still not sure why they have the same title.

I still need to find it a pot to live in, so it can hang out with my real plants. I started out with a pattern from ravelry but the pattern got weird so I winged part of it. The flower from the pattern was just a flat five-petaled thing that I thought I could improve on so I used the 'wiggle crochet' technique to make what I think looks a bit more like a flower that belongs on a cactus. Glad you like it!

Yep. Ravelry.com is amazing. You can find patterns for pretty much everything there. I'll show you my crocheted cactus if you show me yours, elizabeth!

I follow a few blogs as well, mainly Moogly and Cre8tioncrochet.com Crochet.

Edit: it's ok to have mistakes in your work. I call them 'proof of being handmade.' The best part of messing up in crochet as opposed to knitting is that frogging is much easier.

Good point. Some of the things I read this year were longer or more technical than my typical sci-fi reads. Knitting is pretty cool but I think I still much prefer crochet. Anyway, not a full list, but here are some of the books that stood out that I read this year:

Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void by Mary Roach

Some of the Best from Tor.com 2014

Children of God by Mary Doris Russell

I Am Legend and Other Stories by Richard Matheson

The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York by Deborah Blum

Currently I am reading Cosmos by Carl Sagan. Seen the movie, had a copy of the book on my shelf for awhile, finally decided to actually read it.

Debating with myself on a goal number for next year. Probably going to make it 20, I read that many in 2015 but devoted a lot more time to crafting this year.

Get on this album making thing post-haste! (Yeah, I know, it doesn't really work that way.)

I'm at 13 of 25 for the year, but I did learn how to knit in my defense.

Make more. I got into crochet heavily this year, need to get back into jewlelry. I might have an opportunity to have my work in a local storefront, going to work on things for that. Most of my jewelry making this year was repairing things for people.

Keep working on my Spanish.

Lose at least one pant size. I'm still fat but my cholesterol levels are better this year than they were the last two years despite my weight being virtually the same.

Yeah. I still have the skeleton song from an old newgrounds video as my ringer. Been on every cell phone I've had since I downloaded it. Only seasonally relevant once a year but I don't care, and also, no one has ever had the same ringtone to get confused with.

LOL! She might just be the one to test wearing one diaper for six days. Can you imagine the rash?
