I am calling this The Year Of The Finisher because, well, you'll see why as you read my goals. I'd thought about calling it The Year Of The Closer but that just seemed too baseball or too interrogation rather than about joyous completion.
Goal #3 is to finish two things which are partially knit. That could be my Valentina Devine. . .
Goals #4 is to finish two things I have yarn and pattern for but haven't started. I many, many, many little kits that I thought I just couldn't live without. I even have yarn and patterns which used to be a kit but some how got separated. Will I ever really know what they were supposed to be?
Goal #5 is to make two projects from my UDY (undesignated yarn) collection. I think this will probably included something from the fabulous Twisted Fiber Arts. As I organize the Stash Studio, I plan to open every tub and get reacquainted with all of my little darlings. This will definitely rekindle the love.
Now from goals 3, 4 and 5 I definitely will have treasures just awaiting someone for Christmas next year.
Goal #6 is to plan 2 unique classes for Ann's By Design. I have learned that I love to coach and help people solve problems much more than teach a class so maybe my classes will revolve around that. I kind of envision one on fixing mistakes or different cast-ons and why you use them.
Goal #7 is to not let Knit The Sky become synonymous with journaling. You know, you get a journal for Christmas and have all of the intention of writing every day and before you know it it is June and you haven't touched it since February. So far it is going great, but then it has only been four days of knitting.
Goal # 8 is to visit a new LYS.
Do you think I've been over exuberant? Do you think I've planned too much? Well, there definitely is a stretch here.
Oh, wait!!!! I forgot a goal. I think the number should be even. So my Goal # 10 is to learn to brioche and use this beautiful Twisted Fiber Arts sock yarn to make a scarf. Hazel's grandma had one on at the last TFA yarn tasting and it was fabulous.
Well, now I am significantly overwhelmed and I think I need to go knit!
