Another year of knits ...

and my New Year Resolution.

Dare I make a resolution? Usually I make it something small and attainable. Like remembering to send everyone in the family a birthday card. I set up the plan and really do keep to it for the whole year. But ... when the year ends I go back to my ole ways. That's right, you'd be lucky to get a card of any kind from me now since I hardly write now that I've been online. If you don't have a computer, you're out of luck. I'll use my cell phone first and give you a call. But what kind of plan or New Year Resolution might I have this year?

Can you guess?


Well I've already implemented it. It's even a 2-parter. First, I plan to knit as much as possible from my STASH. This one will be the hardest to keep, but I have already knit a couple of things from the stash. I'll show you below. Second, I plan to finish at least half of what I've already have on needles. And if you look at my Ravelry Project page you would see that might be a pretty tall order.

Now if you only counted the WIPs take another look at what's in Hibernation. Yah, I know that's 30 projects right there Hibernating. But at least 2 can be frogged and a few were never even cast on. Only swatched. And while I'm organizing and pulling out those projects I'm also finding MIA's. Yup, I found 2 so far. They were scarves I started but never finished. Never even made it to the Ravelry Project list. But one is already finished into something else.

It's already blocked and thrown into the 2010 Christmas Basket. I don't even remember what pattern it was being made from. I just remember it was a scarf and I didn't like the fact that it wasn't reversible and I don't like the back side as well as the front. But as a Headband it's perfect!

The other one I found ... it'll make a better Cowl than a scarf. So that may happen soon.

And what I have a knit from the STASH?

All from yarn in my Stash and now in the 2010 Christmas Basket.

I wonder how long this knitting energy is going to last before ...

someone shoots me? [see ... I knew what you were thinking.]
