2010 is a finishing year for me. I have lots of wips no finished projects - thus 2010 is a finishing yr! NO NEW yarn, patterns or starting of new projects untill I have 3 existing done. How about the rest of you?

My 2010 knitting goald are:
- continue to knit felted clogs (over 200 made- finances my yarn habit)
- add one "challenge" project of some sort. Not sure what yet
- attend one workshop, retreat, or conference
- find a way to make knitting and aerobic activity :-)

I only have one knitting resolution for 2010,and that is to knit more sweaters and cardigans for my winter wardrobe, as I had a clear-out recently and got rid of sweaters which I felt didn't suit me,and decided that I needed to concentrate on making more classic designs.It is now summer in New Zealand,but earlier this week I went out and bought some Cleckheaton Country Naturals DK yarn and have cast on my first new sweater.I am hoping that by the time the weather becomes cooler, I would have finished a couple of sweaters and cardigans for winter 2010.

My resolutions are:
- knit at least 10 minutes every day(sometimes I read about knitting more than I actually knit)
- knit one sweater
- knit from the stash as much as possible
- knit one item per month for charity

I also want to improve my spinning so that I can knit my handspun.

My 2010 resolutions are:
-knit from stash as much as possible
-look through patterns and find projects where I will force myself to learn new techniques (e.g. toe up socks)
-knit a beaded shawl

I would like to knit more sweaters too. I only have 2 that I actually wear out of the house and neither were very complicated or included any kind of shaping. I have a fear of changing patterns but I'd like to modify a pattern just enough to fit me well.

My other resolution is to knit with laceweight. I've knit several lace shawls but they were out of sock yarn. I have 2 skeins of laceweight in my stash and I'd like to either knit them up or destash them.

You're kidding right?! I'm not sure I even remember my resolutions from this year! But here goes:

Get back to knitting on a regular basis for stress relief and fun.

Learn to knit continental style (class and yarn paid for).

Start over knitting my lace shawl in Clara's Garden (I picked a lousy pattern).

Start making a sweater for myself.

Knit 2 socks at a time on 2 circs for DH.

oh yes - finishing is definitely on the list for 2010! i have four large wips (we won't mention how many small ones!) but foremost in my resolutions is to knit something just for the joy of it. too much of my knitting time lately has been spent knitting things for sale and i've realized several things: 1)they like what you knit but do you have it in another colour? 2)they like what you knit but could you cut the price? 3)their mother knit that for free and you should too. that sounds cynical and i suppose it is, but next year i am knitting for my own pleasure. if other people like it, good. if they don't, oh well. i also plan to knit largely from my stash, but i won't set myself up for failure by resolving not to buy more yarn! hee hee! happy holidays everyone!

No more than two projects going at the same time; learning how to crochet; trying a project with color work; not buying yarn if I don't know how I will use it; knitting for my church's hat and mitten tree in August not the first week in December

My sash is HUGE and OBSCENE! It needs to be reduced !

My other goal is to continue to experiment to develop new designs.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

I have 3 unfinished projects. However, I am finishing a cardigan for my grandaughter this week so I can give it to her for Christmas. Then on to the other 2 which I plan on getting done in the next 2 months. To motivate me to finish UFOs in a more timely manner, every time I finish one, I put a dollar in a jar, and at the end of the year, I take the money and buy something "I" want. For me, no one else. You'd be surprised how fast it adds up if you're really motivated!!

THE GIRLS IN MY FAMILY gave me patterns and color suggestions for scarves this fall for next year projects. Finishing is a necessity this time....:-)

1) Finally finish my stepped rib stole in buckwheat bridge angora that I started almost a year ago AND make another in the mostly merino fine vermont wool that I bought for this purpose at Margaret Klein Wilson's stand in rhinebeck this year (good luck to me).
2) Knit my first pair of socks with the 2 skeins of koigu i bought for this purpose one year ago.
3) Knit irish moss toque (that i am swatching for now) in the malabrigo worsted i got as a gift a year ago.
4) perhaps a Debbie Bliss baby shrug in knit picks comfy (except I don't love the color I got, which is why it is at the bottom of the list).

I never make resolutions because I never every finish them. I will knit more and crochet more. Those I can keep!

LOL


Yarn happens. What's a fiberholic to do?

By the way, just loved the newsletter this week. Awesome quick knit gifts! I may have to go get the pattern for that little mousy, and I have been eyeing the Pretty Thing for a few weeks now.

Thanks Clara!

I resolve to finally beat the sock!

Also, to try and reduce my stash before buying more yarn, although I don't know how that will go...

My knitter's goal for 2010 is to knit exclusively from my stash.....and not buy ANY yarn. I have got to start using those boxes and bags full of yarn. Oh yes, there is also the trunk that my Dad brought to South Dakota from Wisconsin which contained all his earthly belongings. That, too, is full of yarn.

Do you think I can do it? Check in with me next December.

I'm jumping on the finishing bandwagon too...too many wips, not enough time. And to reduce sock stash significantly. AND finally, to find homes for my not-loved-but-liked yarn right after Christmas is over.

Well, the socks WILL be finished by Christmas (by definition). If I need a resolution, it will be to use something from each of the books I recently bought. (Scandanavian Knitting; Crocheted snowflakes; Filet Crochet; and 2 amigurumi animal books) Probably no more books for a while.

I probably shouldn't buy any more books for a while, though I might buy a pattern immediately before making it.

Spin up the two lots of super fibres that I've bought,then knit the sweaters that I've planned ,this time for me the last two have been for my husband.........now I'm going to be selfish!! it's a lot easier to plan resolutions like this when you're retired!
