Happy new year everyone!
I am not going to go into detail with my knitting goals like I did last year. If there is one thing I learned about knitting in 2008 it’s that I don’t need to add stress and deadlines, because that kills the fun.
Instead, this year my knitting goals can be summed up in one phrase: learn something new. I have all these design ideas floating around in my head, but I’m not comfortable enough with cables or multicolor knitting to execute them yet. So this year, each project that I start for myself will incorporate some new skill that I want to practice. First up: Ester, to practice cables.
I would also like to finish a bunch of WIPs, including Wicked, Serrano, Tailored Scallops, Caroline’s Bagstopper and a secret blanket project.
I also intend to blog more, and a bit differently. I want to bring back “Swatch Saturday” to remind me to contribute to the WTP and blog at least once a week. I also hope that trying out new stitch patterns will spark design inspiration.
Here’s to a happy and productive 2009 for you and yours!
