Resolutions

I usually try to write a list in the last month of the year as resolutions for the coming year. None of them are hard fast have to be done, but they help remind me of my goals. They serve in times of "I have no knitting mojo," "This feakin' isn't working," and "I'm overwhelmed in yarn," a perspective on my time and the art I like to produce.

1. Knit one pattern from each of the books that I own.

2. Put out three designs throughout the year.

3. Walk at least twice a week

4. Pursue the first portion of a Knitting Master degree.

5. Keep in touch with long distance friends once a week.

6. Blog at least twice a week.

7. Start a podcast.

8. Read one book a month.

9. One pair of Knitted Knockers a month.

Just little reminders to keep my life from flying away in these crazy times.


I finished the book Overseas by Beatriz Williams and now have moved onto The Man in the High Castle by Philip K. Dick. Its been interesting comparing the show to the book, so far things are very similar and vastly different. I'm joining Ginny and Frontier Dreams this week with their Alongs.

    1. I've been building up to it, I really enjoy them and I feel that I'm better in person/aloud than written. We'll see, I've recorded a few and then never put them up...

    1. It's definitely a many years goals. I'm hoping to have by the time I'm 30, I turn 25 this May so I think I have enough time.

  6. That is a fun list of goals! Thank you so much for the link to the knitted knockers. I had no idea that this was a much needed item for charity but will definitely be adding it to my charity knitting list. The podcast sounds like a fun project and I hope that you do it!

    1. We are a collection point (for Knitted Knockers) in the shop that I work at so they are close to my heart. I'm a bit nervous about the Podcast, not sure if there will be any interest but I do think I want to give it a try:)
