Knitting New Year's Resolutions
I know it's early but if I don't do this now it probably won't happen

I, Suziehomemaker, do hereby declare that I will not purchase additional yarn in the year of 2007 (shock! gasp!) and I will use up my stash to finish all of the beautiful items I wanted to make.
***Exceptions include knitting needles if needed and if a family member asks for a specific item (I can't deny requests)

I will finish the baby afghan that I started before May 5th for my son's first birthday.

I will finish the Great American Aran Afghan that I started even if it kills me. (finishing one more square at this point would be an achievement)

I will make beautiful items out of the massive amounts of Wool-Ease that I purchased at a ridiculously low price and give them as gifts to loved ones or to charity.

I will find a way to organize and store the ugly yarn I inherited from my DH's grandma and use it to teach someone to knit.

I do so declare on the 7th day of December in the year of 2006 that these items will go into effect on January 1st, 2007 and expire on December 31, 2007.

Now what would happen if someone gave you a gift certificate to a LYS for your birthday or other special occasion? Would that not apply since you are techinically not buying the yarn yourself? What if your desired purchases exceed the amount of the gift card?

I will finish at least two of the 12 projects that are "in progress".

I will not start a new project when I have 12 projects "in progress".

I will organize my yarn, and not use my extra bedroom exclusively for the storage of yarn.

I will use yarn in my 'stash' (read: My own privat LYS), rather than buying new yarn for a project, (knowing I have some that will work just as well in my stash already).

I will not buy more than one auctions worth of yarn on ebay per month.

I will not use knitting as an excuse not to do my dishes.

I will stop trying to convert all of my co-workers to knit-workers.

I will dye my own yarn wtih kool-aid.

I will make something for myself....and keep it.

I will buy more yarn than I can use, but only when it's on sale or when I really really like the color

thought i'd better make a resolution I can actually keep.

I could not have come up with better ones myself!

my own personal resolution: make something from the fabulous yarn that I recieved as a gift from my mom and KEEP IT FOR ME!

buy what i want, when I want, for what price I want, whenever I want, no matter the consequences...it can only go up from there...
I have learned in my life about making resolutions.. make them reasonable, and liveable, and fun!
