New Year

Well, it's 2010 already! Time for me to make some New Year's resolutions. Here's what I've decided to do in the upcoming year.

1) Knit from stash
There is far too much yarn in my loft, and I have a terrible habit of being unable to resist a bargain. This year, I'm going to try and knit from stash as much as possible, only buying new yarn when absolutely necessary if it's for a gift.

2) Use 100 balls in 2010
This will help with the stash burning. I'm going to try and get through at least a hundred balls by the end of the year, but more if possible.

3) Make time for a new craft
My aunt gave me some felting stuff ages ago, and I haven't had a chance to use it yet. I'm definitely going to experiment with at least one new craft this year, and hopefully develop skills that I can combine with my knitting.

To help with the stash burning, I've compiled a list of things I want to knit this year. I do still have a lot of WIPs on the go, but I've been working through them and trying to finish some off recently.

WIPs

Denim sweater for my brother
Vintage nautical sweater for me
Long line 4ply coat for me

Things to make

Owls sweater
Glacier cabled coat
Ribbed sweater
Tapestry sweater

That'll do for the moment, I'm sure there will be plenty more things to add to this list as the year goes on!
