KNITTING RESOLUTIONS, or not

Yes, I too hate New Year's resolutions. So, why am I making these knitting resolutions? I feel my knitting is in a rut and it needs serious help; also my blogging here has been at a standstill and I want to get it moving regularly. Is anyone else in a knitting rut? If so maybe some of these "resolutions" will work for you too.


 1. I will finish the pirate sweater once I get the bobbins all untangled. Which leads to the next resolution.


 2. I will not just desert a project when the "going gets rough", but will seek help from knitting professionals at my Local Yarn Store.


 3. I will use up all of my unused "stash" this year. (O.K. stop laughing). 


 4. I will do more projects that I know I can finish like these, although obviously my husband does not think the BLUE hat is a MAN color:


5.  I will publish more on this blog, hopefully giving you more information, free patterns and ideas. 

6.  I will finish all ongoing projects, no matter how many years they have been ongoing. Also finish 
grandchild projects while the grandchild still wears that size!!  



Wow, all I've got is SEVEN, there must be more please add some in comments.

  1. I knit in spurts. I love having something half done to just pick up and knit, but I also hate having things half done because I cannot start a new project if I haven't finished one. It's a curse.
    My resolution for knitting in 2012 might be to buy more yarn! I like always having a few skeins just in case something catches my eye!

  5. Love this! I too, need to make a "crocheting" resolution list! I can totally relate to the one about using your "stash."

    Great post!

  6. Just stopping by to follow you from the A-Z challenge! Last year was so much fun, I decided to give a go again! As a novice knitter, I look forward to exploring your blog!
