I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

New Year’s Resolutions 2014

1. Frequent more local eateries.

Sock and Guac.
fyi: the guacamole at Mother’s Cafe is delicious!

2. Finish the quilting project I’ve been working on by April 15. The Husband and I worked on the taxes New Year’s Eve, so I should have some free time in early April.

3. Don’t be jealous, but I also spent New Year’s Eve cleaning off my desk while enjoying a mimosa. That’s how I roll. Start 2014 with a (mostly) clean desk – check!

4. Continue to enjoy driving my all electric Nissan Leaf! 37k + gas free miles and counting! (Stop spending the money I’m saving on yarn. The stash is getting out of control.)

5. Eat more fresh fruits and veggies and frequent the farmer’s market.
Food and Soap

6. Take more time to smell the knitting (or roses).

Sydney smelling my Sheepy Ornament - more on that Friday.


8. Try 1 new healthy recipe per month.

7. Increase my machine sewing comfort level (from you know, almost none).

8. Finish 14 pairs of socks.

Including my Hunter Hammersen Swoopy Thing on the Foot Socks (more on that tomorrow).
Beach Plum socks
…and the socks formerly known as the Glass Slippers (Bea Socks by Christina Wilkins).

9.Do NOT buy any more items for wrapping gifts. My gift-wrapping supply inventory still makes my yarn stash seem sane.

Have a very happy 2014! I wish you all an amazing year!!!

According to the blog, it looks like I may not have done resolutions in 2012. How unlike me. But, I guess that means I did them all, so yay!
This year, I’d like to:
1. Knit one pair of socks two at a time.
2. Knit with 5 yarns I’ve not tried before.
3. Learn to cook 10 new healthy dishes.
4. Increase my machine sewing comfort level (from you know, almost none).
5. Work on hand quilting. My current skill leaves something to be desired and I’m thinking about something like these for a 2014 project.

6. Do NOT buy any more items for wrapping gifts. My gift-wrapping supply inventory is starting to make my yarn stash seem sane.
7. Continue to enjoy driving my all electric Nissan Leaf. Spend all the oil change and gasoline money saved on more yarn!
8. Pay more attention to the garden. More tomatoes. Less basil.
9. Read a few classics (3+) via audio books from the library.
10. Blog at least 6 times per month.
11. Optional: Hunt down and buy a hank of Schaefer Yarn (leaning Heather) since there will be no more.
12. Optional: Knit a cranberry and popcorn garland for the tree next year. (might just end up making a real one if I run out of time. ahem. you know, like, if I spend the whole year knitting socks.)

13. Have a very happy 2013! I wish you all a fantastic year!!!
