Every year people make New Years Resolutions and I am joining that crowd with some knitting resolutions.
1. Since I have a bad habit of buying sock yarn and just admiring it, I am resolving to knit a pair of socks a month. This will be made easier by my having some of my On Line Smart Ass Yarn Hos join me in a knit along. Every month a different sock pattern. For January, we are starting of with an easy pattern, "Thuja" Its a worsted weight sock that knits up quickly. A little instant gratification for the start.
2. I am going to knit Bob a sweater. This will be my first attempt at an article of clothing that is fitted. I have already picked out a simple pattern, "Cobblestone" by Jarod Flood and have the yarn purchased.
3. I want to finish up a bunch of the UFOs that are lying around here. Maybe finishing one a month.
4. Send 12 hats to Christmas At Sea.
I think these are pretty reasonable goals and not too unatainable.
I have already started on #1 and should finish the first sock today.
