I don't really make resolutions, but I do have some "goals." To continue knitting for charities that I already knit for, hospitals and pregnancy center, and Ships Support; to give away a lot of my stash to some kids who knit for homeless people; to stop making large projects unless I really want to! AND, NEVER EVER USE A HAIR DYE THAT HAS THE WORD "AUBURN" IN IT, unless I want to look like the Little Mermaid for Halloween....!! Although, because I have done this, I may get more knitting done while it wears off...ROFOFL!! Barb

P.S. Realized I left out exercising regularly, since we bought an exercise bike to have at home so we don't have to pay every month to go to the gym. Someone lent us a rowing thing for as long as we want it, too. This way I can easily exercise and make up for all the sitting and knitting!! I put the bike behind the couch where there is space to sit and watch TV or a video if I want to while I exercise.

One more, knit myself a hat to cover my hair!

I don't make resolutions either because there is no point when I know they will fail from the outset.
I am, however, going to finish all my UFOs and not start anymore new projects until they are finshed. I am going to spend less time on the computer and more time doing my crafts. I am going to try to catch up with friends in person, or at least on the telephone, rather than via e-mail.


Happy Knitting,
Tam

Hi all!

I don't make "resolutions", per se. However, I do dig through my stash & decide what I want to do with the treasures I have horded... I "pre-stage" my projects. I dig around & look through my books. Then I write it down.... I knit through my list and try to always learn something from the projects I do. So, that's not really a resolutions, but it is a thoughtful method....

I would like to do more charity knitting this year. I really slacked off last year because of some larger knitting projects. I would like to do one charity for every one family knitting.

My resolution is to make the sweater for my granddaughter that I started over a year ago. Also, I want to learn to do more: socks, intarsia, etc.

My knitting resolution for 2004: Actually, I guess I have two.
1) To only work on one project at a time, so I complete something.
2) To work on a project/projects over the year that use up my stash which has started to grow on it's own!

I LOVE making resolutions and setting goals on January 1, and then I like to do it again on June 1st! I set 10 goals and they are always attainable resolutions. This method has helped me attain my goals my entire life. I like this quote from my Mary Englebreit January, 2004 Calendar, "Don't Count the Days, Make the Days Count." Happy New Year!

Some goals for this coming year: Start a knitting/crochet club at my high school and try to encourage some charity knitting as a group project. I already started one student crocheting during lunchtime, and now have 2 more students inquiring if they can learn during lunches. They want to make an official club and meet once or twice a week. If the students are willing, I'm there. (I teach Spanish.)

I'd like to finish my Einstein coat that I started at Thanksgiving. I'm happy to say I've already made a dent in my stash by knitting mitts, a poncho, a hat, and a shawl as gifts for Christmas. Am now working on my first pair of socks and have knitted the top down to the heel beginning and now am stumped. Want to knit an afterthough heel but just can visualize it for some reason. Have 19 stitches on a holder and stopped.

HI,
I have made only one real resolution for this new year but it encompases a lot of things. That resolution is to finish all project that have been started before starting anything new. Wish me luck!

I want to try socks and a felted tote. I have the yarn for 2 totes and would like to give as Xmas gifts in 2004. The same thing I said last year, maybe this year it will happen and I would like to take some knitting classes. That should happen as there our some great knitting shops in Seattle and the surrounding area. I also need to finish the 2 sweater I started for Xmas gifts.

These are all great ideas! Incorporating many of them, here are my 2004 knitting resolutions:

1. Continue to knit mostly for charity, which also helps use up the stash.

2. Enjoy what I'm knitting more, and knit more of what I enjoy, and generally keep on having fun with my knitting.

3. Knit only what I want to make. This Christmas I made a Harry Potter scarf for Younger Niece, and it turned out great--but it had LOTS of fringe and I REALLY dislike making fringe. Well, I guess I'd do that again--but only for someone I'm really, really close to.

4. Learn how to do duplicate stitch so that I can finish up the three projects I designed for that--the only three for me!

5. Use the new knitting bag my sister gave me for my birthday. It's an Edward Gorey canvas bag with a cat reclining on a pile of books. It says, "Books. Cats. Life Is Sweet."

It is indeed!

Happy 2004 to all of us.

My only resolution this year is to wash and moisturize my face every night before going to bed -- this being the only goal I have that I have to force myself to do until I (hopefully) get in the habit.

Some of the things I will be getting into with knitting this year, however, include cables, socks, my first garmet, and wherever else the knitting muse may lead. I'm looking forward to this year. :)
