2011 Knitting Resolutions - Follow Through!
It's that time of year again! Time to make promises that you can actually keep.

Tell us your knitting resolutions for this year!

Maybe you want to learn a new stitch...
Or try a new pattern...
...use a different yarn.
...organize your stash of yarn.
...set up a craft room in your house.
...subscribe to a knitting magazine.
...buy a whole new set of knitting needles and supplies

As for me, I resolve to finish up all the projects I've still got on the needles. (A HUGE task!)

I might have to hire some pinch knitters.

Wait..that's what resolutions are? I thought they were things we promise, but have no intention of keeping even though we can.

I suppose I should finish up my projects on the needles, but.... I really, really want to start something new!!

New Knitting Year's resolutions...
Hi!

So many things I knit tend to just roll out the door as soon as they're finished, blocked and wrapped. (Sometimes I don't even get to wash them first, the recipient just clutches them and refuses to let go!)

As a result, I haven't been taking photos or even making a list of the things I finish off. It would be nice, I think, to have that on hand so I can look back over the year and see my progress. And also it'd be nice to be able to share the pictures with other knitters!

So, for the new year, I'm doing a log of my finished projects and taking photos of all my finished work.

Also, I will FINALLY finish the book I've been working on forever involving how to design your own kitchen cotton knits! I just started one of the final projects for it tonight, so I'm on my way!

Hope all here have a wonderful new knitting year!

Ruthie

1. Finish that dang sweater vest.
2. Join a knitting group.
3. Learn how to cable.
4. Learn how to use two circular needles. (!??)
5. Start an after-school knitting club in the fall, which of course will be called "COOL WOOL SCHOOL." heh

1. Finish the few projects I have on my needles (OU hat, hat/glove/scarf set, my girl's UT hat)

2. Of course to accomplish all that I have to learn to knit finger-gloves.

3. I want to knit something for myself that is NOT a simple neck gaiter. I want to knit a sweater. Just for me. In colours I like and a style I like that is not just off the rack that everyone has.

4. Knit a pair of socks for the hubster. He wants some good socks that don't make his feet sweat but are super comfy. He's found some he's going to try through Under Armor, but if I can make some similar, I'd rather do that for him.

New Year's Resolutions
To explore new possibilities for patchwork knitting and applique as regards to knitting art... whether it be for the wall or for the sweater.
To not listen to that not so quiet voice that tells me I can't possibly do it when, in the end, I can.
