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 🙂
