As stated previously, I think New Year's Resolutions are bunk. Most of them aren't even kept a week, because people set themselves up for doing crazy things and then get upset when they fail. I agree a new year is a nice fresh start for doing/trying things however, but I don't think that waiting for a new year is necessary if you really want to make a change in your life.
On that note. These are my knitting resolutions and the only New Year's Resolutions I am making.
Complete the project or frog it. Don't leave it laying around half done.
No more than 4 WIP at one time, this includes small little quickie things. This includes everything! - Failed!
Knit something Lace. - Done!
Knit something Entrelac.
Knit something Intarsia. - Done!
Knit several somethings for shmoo.
Try to knit one pair of socks every 2 months. - Failed!
If it is meant to be a Christmas gift, it must be done by December 1.
Still do my other crafts as well.
A crochet WIP counts as one of the 4 WIPs I am allowed to have. - Moot.
Knit myself a sweater/cardigan.
Knit more chenille washcloths. (They make fabulous presents when given with a bar of handmade soap. I tend to always have the soap on hand, I should make a point to have more washcloths as well.)
Take a picture of each FO and put it in my photo gallery.
Realize that I will never make all the things I see and want to make, and buying yarn for those things doesn't get them made any faster.
Knit from the stash whenever I can. Even if I may not like the yarn as much. Even if the color isn't just perfect. (Or perhaps sell it? and make room for new yarn?)
Happy New Year Everyone!
