Now, to remind myself that I don’t do goals well, I am not going to set resolutions or goals for 2016. I like what iknead2knit is planning to do. Intentions. I will make intentions in regards to my knitting.

My intentions are:

  1. Knit more for myself. Hmm, that seems to be a theme with me at the beginning of the year, but it quickly goes south.
  2. Learn a new technique. No clue what this might be at this time, but I will keep my eyes open for something.
  3. No deadlines! OK, so a few baby items will be made this year. But I will endeavor to stay ahead of delivery dates.
  4. Knit up more stash than I buy.

And that’s it. Simple and easy, I hope.

Word of the Year. Hmm, again, I suck at stuff, so looking back, did I hold true to my word of 2015? It was Enough. I wanted to help myself remember that whatever I accomplished was enough. That I wasn’t going to push myself. I think I did OK on this endeavor. But then again, I ended up adding lots of knitting to my plate through charity knitting and baby knitting. I have 3 baby items to knit for next year, so far. This year I am going to keep it to very close ties, not just knit for everyone I hear of who is expecting. Charity knitting will continue to be important, especially if it uses up stash. But no buying yarn to knit charity hats this year.

So, do I have a word for this coming year? Yes. Life. I am just going to live life. I am not going to stress it, push it, or regret it. This year brings a lot of change with our Diva Girl going to college in the fall. The house will be quieter. The events will be cut in half, or maybe Hubster and I will find other events to enjoy with each other. It will be a chance for us to learn what we want to do. So life, it will be lived to the fullest!

  1. I’m pretty much doing the same thing, especially the first point – I never seem to knit for myself and I have no idea why! I have some yarn ready to go so a scarf and a cardigan might be among my January projects 🙂

  2. My goal was to use up my ENTIRE stash before I bought new yarn. And then I found 5 skeins of yarn on sale for $0.50 at the thrift store yesterday. So. There’s that. 🙂 Happy New Year! Here’s to new techniques!
