Does anyone have any knitting resolutions for 2010?

I have been knitting for a few years, but am primarily a crocheter. Something I have always wanted to do is learn to knit in the round. That is my number one resolutions. After I master that, I would like to learn to knit socks.

So....I would really love to hear if anyone else has knitting resolutions or goals.  Grin

Well, I hadn't thought of knitting resolutions until I saw this post, but you've inspired me!

I resolve to finish a sweater that I worked on last year (as in 2008) but put aside and ignored for over a year.  All it needs is trim added around the sleeves and neckline, but somehow I never got around to it.  Also, my schedule was super busy this fall, so I regretably haven't really been knitting for the last few months.  So I am trying to set aside some knitting time a few times a week--I'm hoping that it may help lessen my stress level as well!

Oh, and by the way, knitting in the round sounds scary, but it's really not hard at all, and you'll be so glad once you've learned it!  It will make your life SO much easier!  Best of luck!

all you've really gotta remember about knitting in the round is DO NOT TWIST. after that, it's sooooo easy.

uhm. let's see... i want to finish two sweaters this year, and a pair of gloves i've been working on for two years now. all i need is the thumb gusset and it should only take like... fifteen minutes, but i just can't make myself do it. :S

Awww, all the little smileys have party hats for the new year!

That aside, hmmm.... I usually think resolutions are silly, but I like the idea of knitting resolutions. I'd hoped my parents would get me the Knitter's Almanac for Christmas, and then I would just make a resolution to do a monthly project, but it seems they decided that food and toilet paper was more important than enabling my addiction. Tongue

I dunno! I guess I'll make a significant dent in the huge waiting list of patterns I've got collecting dust!

I normally don't do resolutions but I have this shawl I started in 2008.... Finishing that before 2011 seems like a good idea.  Roll Eyes

2010 will be remembered as the year I learnt to knit! (So far I have made a scarf  Tongue)

..But I've already made some resolutions to myself that I am going to try so hard not to break.

The first one. One project at a time and only buying wool for the project I'm doing now. I can't risk a stash like I have with my fabric and other crafts, I just don't want to go there.

Second is to only buy knitting supplies that I really really love and am committed to working with.

And the last is to make an item of wearable clothing before the end of the year. (I think thats do'able?)

I'm hoping to do more large long term projects rather than just hats and cowls all the time. I'd also like to learn at least the basics of colorwork, probably intarsia for beginnings.

To finish one of the things I've started for myself! I only seem to actually finish things that are destined for the consignment shop!

Finish the blanket that was supposed to be a Christmas present back in 2008. It's a custom, and frustrating, intarsia pattern of a Hatchet Man with "Juggalo Love" above and below him.
