I have read on other blogs about various new year “resolutions”. Having learnt from past experience that the usual ‘lose weight’ & ‘save money’ kind don’t work I just wonder what the new year will bring & how well I will stick to my ‘intentions’.
2007 is, apparently, the year of the de-stash. Knitters worldwide are on a yarn diet and knitting from their stash only. Of course there are exceptions to this, as the purchase of sock yarn somehow doesn’t apply.
I won’t kid myself that I won’t purchase any more yarn (sock or otherwise) but I do intend to knit from my stash. I have made 2007 my year of the finished object! I have enough projects (with the yarn) to keep me busy for most of the year, along with ‘block of the month’ quilting kits that I somehow never kept up with each month, Playways & the Touchbase Hand Knit course. My intention/resolution is to finish lots/something/anything I have started; this includes patterns & yarns I have bought & not yet cast on for……… We’ll see.
Just before Christmas I cast on for the Waterlily Top in Interweave Knits Spring 2006. Due to problems getting the correct gauge I have had to frog it & start again. A smaller size needle & a smaller size top. (Now I’m worried that it will have to be frogged again, too small maybe?)
