Knitter’s New Year’s Resolution
Okay, I know, it’s not 1916, I wanted to change it to 2015, but one of last year’s resolutions (to learn Photo Shop), clearly never came to be.
A new year, brings a new list of . . .
Knitter’s New Year’s Resolutions!
1) Stop procrastinating
okay, so based on the fact that I’m writing this on Jan 3rd instead of Jan 1st, I might have already missed that one.
2) Steek without tears
Although it’s possible that the tears slightly felt the wool making for a more stable steek prep.
3) Devote one day a week to be my “learning day”
A teacher needs to commit to continuing education. I have a giant pile of books to read and new knitting techniques to master. You all want fresh class content, so I gotta keep up with ya :).
3) Knit for pleasure
The only drawback to making your living playing with yarn, is it’s really easy to find that you haven’t knit one stitch that isn’t for a video, a class or a magazine for a year and a half.
3) Wipe the dust off my spinning wheel and make some yarn
I know this isn’t really a “knitter’s resolution”, but get off my back.
4) Devote one day to swatching . . . really, every week
Swatching is fun, swatching is dating your yarn, playing the field, messing around. I get sent yarn all the time from generous yarn companies to try. I want to have a regular (I’m gonna say Tuesday) day of cracking out the Stitchionaries and playing with yarn.
5) Stop telling my husband “As soon as I finish this row” when it’s time to (fill in blank), a) leave the house, b) eat, c) go to sleep.
Okay, everyone knows I’m not keeping that one 🙂
What are your “Knit Year’s” Resolutions?
To become the boss of my stash, which right now is the total boss of me. I live in a house, not a yarn shop, but I can see why someone would be confused at this time!
Also, to await your newest content and avidly watch it. I feel like I am standing on the shoulders of greatness. Seriously, I have never learned so much and in such an enjoyable way as I have from you since graduating college mumble mumble years ago. Thank you, Patty and happy new year!
Not to buy any more yarn and to work through some of the stash. To convince myself that a full set of Karbonz and Chiagoo Lace points in addition to some odds and ends are truly enough needles. * big sigh*
