2005 Goals Part 1: Knitting


This year, I decided not to make resolutions, exactly, but to set goals for myself for the coming year. So. My knitting goals for 2005:

1. Finish a sweater already, darn it! Yes, this is the third or fourth year I've said that. I've started plenty. This year I will finish one. I promise.

2. Get rid of the UFOs. I'm afraid to count. But there are a lot. Just trust me on that. By this time next year, I want to have everything except for current projects DONE.

3. Knit fifty items for charity. That's one a week, with two weeks off for holidays or exams or something. I should come up with some sort of progress marker for this to put on the side of the blog. Hmm. Anyway, the two main beneficiaries I'm planning will be Project Angel Kisses for preemies (as I was one myself) and the kids who are my mother's patients at an inner city clinic. I'm open to other suggestions, though, so feel free.

4. Keep track of what I finish. Again, I've resolved this before but failed to keep it up. This year I'll do it. Really.

Well, this should be an adventure, eh? What are your knitting goals this year?

I don't knit (well, I CAN knit, but it's not pretty) but I crochet, and I, like you, have decided to clean up my unfinished projects. I sorted through The Box yesterday, and not counting a bunch of cotton yarn that was given to me, I have nine projects that I can do without buying anything other than two skeins of baby yarn. Most of those weren't projects I'd started; they're just using up yarn I bought and never used. I do have one blanket that I abandoned years ago and one that I've been working on off and on for my daughter (which is the first thing I'm going to finish).

Time to get off the computer and crochet. I really REALLY like your blog and am adding you to my favorites. Thanks for the link. :)
