Crafty New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year by Meddy Garnet, via Flickr

I’m not really one for new year’s resolutions these days,  I just know I cannot keep them!  Craft-based new year’s resolutions, however, are a different thing entirely.  They are actually fun to keep.

So here goes…

  1. Knit socks – lots of them. I have joined the Socktopus Knit Love Club so I will be supplied with gorgeous sock yarn throughout the year.  I’d better get learning how to knit the things pretty quickly…
  2. Knit lace. I have cast on Ishbel and joined an Ishbel knit-along on Ravelry for this one.
  3. Learn to knit colourwork. No idea where to start here!
  4. More tutorials on the blog. I started these towards the end of last year and really hope to offer some more up.
  5. Spread the word about the iMake podcast.
  6. Use my (shiny, new) sewing machine regularly.
  7. Make fewer handmade Christmas gifts! See my recent posts on my handmade Christmas challenge.
  8. Organise knit-alongs with my Stitch n’ Bitch group. The first is planned for this month (a sock!)

Let’s see how I get on.

Has anyone else made crafty resolutions?
