Does anyone else out there have knitting related New Years Resolutions? Mine is to buy no more yarn until I have finished all lapsed projects, and sold off the yarn I am not using. Love to hear yours!!!

There are a few of us who already posted on this a little bit ago:

Mine as it says is to knit more for others throughout the year so that it isn't such a crush at Christmas.

2005 was my year to finish ALL unfinished projects. I'm proud to say that as soon as I sew bead eyes on the last felted fish...I've done it! Even the baby blanket I started for my youngest son, who is 12 now (horrified look) is done. I guess it will keep for a grandchild. lol

Keri, you can do it, too! I'm pulling for you!

So in 2006 I take on learning to knit gloves, mastering entrelac techniques and knitting for myself more. Oh, DH just reminded me that 2006 is also the year I finally knit a sweater for him. It really isn't that *I* was was about him not being able to settle on a pattern!


If you love not the noise of bells, why then do you pull the ropes?

I resolve not to stay up so late knitting, and to get to bed earlier (wish me luck).

Knit to your heart's delight.

New Years resolutions...hmmmm. Well, to knit more of course. To win the I can buy more I can knit more.

To learn to use my stupid fabulous new digital camera.

...and most importantly, to find a way to knit while eating Godiva chocolates, not exercise and still lose weight.

I'll let you in on the secret when I figure it out!

I have an ongoing resolution - get my entire life in order. Been working on this over the past year.

This includes organizing my yarn and spinning wool, and as Marg said: "knit down my stash," or sell the excess. And make time to practice hand embroidery and needle felting and I want to sew up a jacket from a great pattern I bought at the sewing expo.

I won't even mention the work-related projects or the home maintenance and improvement projects..........

hmm, I always vow to finish UFO's, but then one of you mentions a pattern, a fabulous yarn, a new process(to me), or an accessory that I probably can't live without and those vows go out the window as I scramble to buy and do.
Maybe I need to vow to stay away from here until I get some things finished? Nah. Go ahead - enable away!!!

I'm with Sticks and String. Finish all projects! I've lost count of how many projects I have lying around. I also have to join those trying to knit down their stash. I think the first will help with the second, though.
