New Year's Resolutions in Knitting

Hello Friends!

Countdown to 2014:  3 days!
The New Year is fast approaching and this is the time of the year that I like to reflect on what is working and what is not working and where I would like to improve.  Some of the new accomplishments in my knitting this year were knitting mittens and a hat set, knitting a headband, knitting some items to sell to family and friends and learning to knit the raspberry stitch.  I loved learning these new things in 2013 and I hope to learn even more in 2014. 

My New Year’s resolutions in knitting are:

1. Try fair isle
I always thought that fair isle looks beautiful but complicated.  It would be fun to give it a try this year.

 2. Knit a sweater 
I love the idea of knitting a sweater.  It is my number one goal this year!

 3. Knit another pair of mittens
These mittens are adorable! I would love to knit them.  I knitted a pair of mittens this year but I would love to have more practice.

 4. Knit socks 
I  want to knit a pair of socks this year.  I have not really given this a real try yet and would love to learn the proper way to knit a sock.

5. Try following a pattern

6. Keep experimenting with different stitches

The stitch below is so interesting I would love to learn to knit this.  I loved learning to knit the raspberry stitch this year and I would like to challenge myself to try other stitches.

What are your New Year's Resolutions?

Hope you have a great day!
Take care,

Lisa :)

  2. I don't generally make new year resolutions as I know I'd get distracted and not keep them, but I love your idea of knitting goals. You've chosen such fun projects too, so I look forward to following your progress and achievements. Wishing you a very happy, healthy and creative new year ahead :-)

  3. Lisa, I think those are fantastic goals and I bet you accomplish each one. My goal this year is to make several sweaters, and to finish an African Flower baby blanket I started back in April.
    Hugs to you and Happy New Year,

  5. All I've ever stitched are caps and scarves. I'd love to take a formal class on how to make a sweater. Experimenting with different stitches is lots of fun and addictive! Have a safe and happy New Year, Jan

    1. Thank you Jan for your comment! I have knitted a lot of scarves and hats myself so I want to take it to the next level this year, taking a class is a great idea to get the one on one help and guidance. I should look into that as well. Happy New Year !
