1) Stay home long enough to write a blog post.

a) Actually knit something.

b) Finish something.


It may not sound like an ambitious resolution.  But take a look at some of the places I went last year!

And that’s not everything!  There were a lot of weekend excursions that I didn’t put in the list.  It was a truly wonderful year.  However, I’m looking forward to maybe spending two consecutive weeks in my own house.  I haven’t finished a project in months.  For a while, I didn’t even have the time or energy to knit anything at all. 


I did manage to get five patterns published this year, though, bringing my total available patterns up to twenty-three!  Things have settled down now that the holidays are over (which were lots of fun) so I’m planning on getting some good quality knitting time in soon- I have ideas.  Good ideas.


New patterns in 2010:

I hope 2011 is just as great as 2010… but maybe just a little more local.
