Happy New Year & Hello 2014!

Howdy friends and neighbors, it seems a new year has begun and that means big plans to fill the next 365 days! Oh the plans I have, not resolutions so much as grand plans for all the things that I want to get into in the next 52 weeks. Let’s see the list shall we?

  • Find a year long KAL – any suggestions would be helpful by the way.
  • Join KALs to meet even more amazing online knitters
  • Finish a sweater
  • Finish that lace beaded lace shawl.
  • Find that perfect sock formula
  • Stash bust 50% of my stash
  • Actually spin things I want to share on the internet 😉
  • Try my hand at designing more intricate things 
  • Try weaving – it looks like fun!
  • Keep all my social media up to date. aka Ravelry, Twitter, Facebook,  Flickr (my personal favorite), Tumblr and Instagram
  • Be so much better about updating my Etsy store

But here is the one I am really, really excited for….

~ 52 Weeks of New Experiences! ~

I never make New Year’s Resolutions – they usually lead to disappointment. But this year I want to try something new, I want to try 1 new thing a week (or a total of 52 new things in a year). This can be knitting related or anything else my mind dreams up. Life is too short to not keep learn and trying new things. I already know what I want to do for week 1, which is really exciting!, but I am going to have to keep reading blogs, books, magazines and anything I can get my hands on to keep expanding as a person.

This is going to be a very full year indeed. So now I beg for your input friends and neighbors – what knitting are you doing this coming year? Heard of any good KALs? Seen something that tickles your fancy? Please share! I am here and sooo ready to listen!

    I want to learn ALL the sock techniques this year. I also want to use up my scraps (yarn and fabric). Your project looks like fun.

      ALL the sock techniques? Yowzer boss, that’s intense! I have fallen in love with making socks but it may be a while be texture/cables come into the mix.
      Good luck and I cannot wait to see how it turns out!

              Teehhee 😉
              Oh! I picked up my Jayashri last night and I think I knitted it way to big. It sounds silly but I am a way better knitter (at least when it comes to fit) than I was when I started it. i am a little terrified that this thing is going to fit my hubby…with me in it as well!
              We shall see what I can do to try to save it, I can be creative….occasionally at least.

    I with you on the not making resolutions but I am planning on finishing things I start craft-wise and getting my Etsy store up and running! I like the thought of 52 weeks of new things but I may have to limit mine to 1 a month to fit everything in!

      I snuck a cheat in there – 52 weeks or 52 experiences – just for this very reason. 😉 You’ll have to send me the link to your Etsy store when it’s all up and going! Good Luck!

      Okay, but seriously though. I really want to try out color work – it’s something I haven’t tried…any suggestions on where to start? You’re my knitting guru you know 😉
