Mine is to complete projects before starting the next one.  This means finishing both socks or mittens in a pair and all seaming before casting on for my next project.  New yarn will not tempt me!

Does anyone else have a New Year's knitting resolution?

Well, before I make any resolutions, I have so many great things I want to knit I am going to make a list of projects and be really organised about it.

Also, my stash is way out of control- I need to excercise some control.

I resolved to organize my stash and all my needles. I started early on my resolution, so I got it all done this morning. :-D

Also, I want to finish the top down raglan that I've been working on forever.

Mine is to start (and maintain!) a knitting blog.  I have been awful about keeping track of my FOs, so I figure this is a good way to do it.

Since I'm a new knitter, it would be to learn absolutely everything.  Ok, perhaps not realistic, but I want to learn as much as I can.

Will knit for yarn

mine is to stay to 3 WIPs at a time. That might seem like  a lot... but I counted all of the projects I had going on last week and there were 11. yyyyyyyyyeeeah.

Also I want to learn to make socks. I basically already know, but I havent actually put all the components together.

i want to make a sweater! i'm a rather experienced knitter, but i;ve yet to make a sweater. i think my problem is that i'm looking for the perfect sweater, and i can't find it.
NOT TO BE AFRAID OF COLORWORK. i'm terrified of using more then one color in a row. i've done it, but i'm awful at it, i don't like do things i'm bad at, so i just dont use anything but horizontional stripes.
and also use the yarn called for in a pattern. i don't think i've ever ever ever done that.

my big resolution is to only have one kind of WIP at a time: one sweater, one scarf/shawl/wrap, and one pair of socks or gloves. i'm hoping that this way i won't end up with a million WIP's at a time nor will i end up with only the ones i don't want to work on when i start finishing them off. now i just have to get down to that...

My Knitting new years resolutions include:

Making a list of all WIP's (knitting, embroidery, cross stitch, and spinning projects) and start to finish them.

Use the yarn & wool in my stashes up, no buying yarn until it is down to the next smaller tote size, or the end of july, whichever comes first.

Make a list of projects I want to do.

I think that is it.

Happy New Year to everyone.
