I'm not typically one to make new year's resolutions, but it seems efficient to have some creative goals for the year.
I want to finish the quilt that is taunting me from my design wall. Quilts are slow going for me these days, so finishing this one will be an accomplishment.
I want to make one smallish crazy quilt. I have an idea and a plan, and will not start until summer.
I want to make a quilt for my bed. Something sedate (unlike the one on my design wall) and tranquil. It's possible I'll resurrect a UFO for this.
I will finish knitting the two sweaters I have on the needles. The first one I'll tackle in February.
I'm going to knit myself more socks. I love hand knit socks. The pair above have been in process for years. Over the weekend I picked up sock 1, which only needed the toe knit. Since then, I've made substantial progress on sock 2: I turned the heel this morning. If I set my mind to it, I could knit a pair of socks in a week or two. I'm going to knit lots of socks this year. For my next pair, I'm going to experiment with after-thought heels.
I think that's enough: a guideline for the new year, but nothing too rigid, with room or spontaneous projects and for some on-going charity stitching. Wish me luck.
