O, I love yarn reviews ! Can't wait to hear all about them. ( too bad that shipping costs form the US are so high.. which doesn't mean I'll like any review less for it )

My new year's resolutions look quite alike indeed ;) although I also added more reading, socializing and be sunny-mooded. Hm, I guess my resolution mainly comes down to making more time for things. Do you think it would be a very naughty resolution to cut down on domestic chores to achieve the above ?;)

Andee

This year my resolution is to do more spinning and making my own yarn. I really love spinning yarn and my goal this year is to design some patterns that work well with handspun yarn. I am excited for your new KAL!

Knitting resolutions. I just want to be able to relax at some point and knitting helps me relax some.

jody

is that hat WIP the XRayAnn yarn? what hat are you knitting?

i'm working on my goals for next year and plan to post them on the 1st. i've been ruminating on them for a few weeks now. i'm with you on your #2 goal - why add to the library if we're not going to use it?

Maryse

I'm in! I was just writing on my Facebook page that I wanted to knit a cardigan for me this year (as it is too big of a challenge for me during the Ravellenics)! Great KAL! I have no new year resolution. Each year, I try to do my best in all :) It is always inspiring though to read what other people plan on doing! Have a great Sunday!

I'm with you on knitting more from deep stash, Andi. I still have too many yarns that I purchased in 2008 and 2009, the first years I was knitting seriously. I am hoping to reduce the size of that part of my stash significantly in 2014. I also want to knit with yarns I gotten more recently, so that they don't languish in the stash like the older stuff.

I also like the idea of knitting with patterns from my books and Ravelry library. My husband always gives me knitting books for birthdays and Christmas (4 more this Christmas), and I went kind of crazy buying patterns on Ravelry this year, so I'll be joining you on goal #2.

I am still formulating my goals list, and I'll be posting it on my blog later this week.

Monica

Perfect goals! Stashing down Is also a goal for me. 2014 will be the year to "simplify" and to live the moment--that doesnt go well with hoarding wool. Can't wait for everything My Sisters Knitter will bring in the NewYear!

olivia

I'm so in! I look forward to another year with your group and joining in on another Kal! This year for me will be all about knitting for myself more and trying some new things!

AngelaH

I also plan to seek out and knit with yarn from more indie dyers. Luckily, that resolution fits well with my plan to knit more from my stash, which is filled with gorgeous indie yarns I purchased without a plan and have been left to languish.

Isn't it lucky that yarn (properly stored) doesn't go bad ;)

Those sound like some great goals. Can't wait to read about it!

kepanie

I will try to knit more from my stash this year. I did weed out patterns from my faces. I love the projects you have on the needles. Your penmanship is lovely. I'm so anal about mine.

Lisa

I may have to join that KAL. I am working on my list right now and will post it soon. Yours is looking good, I think you will be able to do it :)

Jane

Well hello. I am new to knitting and am glad I stumbled upon your blog. I may have to pick your brain now and then :-). Right now working on a scarf. I am self taught. I watch a lot of you tube videos and have learned a lot. I have been eye balling the addi click bamboo set. Can you lend your opinion on those?

May you have a JOYful new year!!

steph

love your resolutions....and can't wait to be enabled!! (hee, hee---as if I really needed help!!!)

Erin

You're my resolution soul sister! I've been thinking about those exact things except for wanting to knit more sweaters in general in 2014. Go you!

Donna @Allthingsming

My Resolution...Less Cooking and Cleaning...More knitting and tea drinking!!!

bekswhoknits

Definitely resolutions time again. I'm having a bit of trouble this year. But knit more is definitely top. Sometimes I try to add too many new things to try to my goals I forget that knitting will always be my top love.

Kathy

I can't wait for the next ikal and hope my goals fit.happy new year

Christina

I have another blanket in my sites this year, but my first resolution is to finish my current project first. I'm not even allowing myself to buy the yarn for the blanket yet. Oh, the anticipation! Looking forward to all you have to share in 2014. :)

Amanda Keeys

Ha! I love your knitting resolutions in the very first photo - I think that is pretty much mine, too. I never have a plan :)

karen

I too am going to do some knitting goals, mainly knit from the enormous stash that I have accumulated :) Looking forward to the new year with you :)

Carol

Knitting down the stash is always a resolution for me - HA! It never happens - always buying more yarn. So glad I found this blog this year. You introduced me to Luna Grey Fiber Arts which I love love. Found The Woolen Rabbit on my own, another great indie dyer. Let's pour the wine and cast on!

Anne

I'm definitely in with regards to the knit/knit more resolution!

I rarely knit from stash anymore... and I have so many nice yarns. Might be time to find new homes for some of them!

WS

I had a bit of a giggle when I read your resolutions. :D Yup, they looked like mine! Like you, I'm also going to knit more from my currently owned patterns, and you've probably already seen my sock club ambition. It's very exciting.

I have enjoyed reading your blog this year and look forward to reading more about your happy knitting adventures. Happy New Year!

Annie @ knitsofacto

My sentiments exactly ... knit more! I have plans to switch things about a bit at knitsofacto too. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us!

Wishing you only good things in 2014 Andi x

Just a Thought

  • “To live content with small means; to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not, rich; to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart; to study hard; to think quietly, act frankly, talk gently, await occasions, hurry never; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. this is my symphony." ~w.e. channing
