Resolutions

I’m just now getting around to making my New Year’s resolution (yes, singular) – although maybe I could claim I was waiting for the Chinese New Year (…a lie)? Let’s just say life has been hectic.

For my resolution last year, I decided I wouldn’t start any new knitting projects until the old ones were finished; I have a habit of letting UFOs languish for years. I’m happy to say that I did very well with last year’s resolution! In fact, I finished up all of my old UFOs and only created one (the “Fancy Dress” raveled here). Pretty darn good, I think!

So for this year, I’ve decided to apply last year’s resolution to all of my OTHER crafty projects. And, boy, do I have a lot of crafty UFOs! Here’s a list of projects with materials assembled/purchased, as well as true UFOs, that I resolve to accomplish in 2010:

  1. Christmas stockings for Hubby and myself – cross stitched and home sewn [I started Hubby’s stocking in Nov 2007. When I will finish it is now a running joke in the family. Sigh.]
  2. Wedding Photo Album – We got married in Aug 2007 and I still haven’t assembled it. Major embarrassment!
  3. P.J.s for Hubby – Started them 2 yrs ago, even cut out the fabric shapes per the pattern, but haven’t sewn them together yet. [This was the first thing hubby asked about when I told him my 2010 resolution, thus a priority.]
  4. T-shirt Quilt – Using all of hubby’s old t-shirts (of which he has many). [Per wonderful tutorial by CraftStylish contributor Erika Kern.]
  5. Cloth Napkins – At hubby’s request, though I don’t know why it never occurred to me. [Per these great tutorials from Maggie Makes and Skip to My Lou.]
  6. Topper for Christmas Tree – Has been barren each year thus far. Truly sad. Still deciding on a pattern…
  7. Process Ivan and Hamlet’s Mohair – Wash, dye, card, and spin. All of it! Including the new fiber we’ll be relieving them of in March / April. I am totally excited!

A pretty hefty, yet do-able list. Unfortunately, this means I’ll have to ease up on the number of knitting projects I complete this year. But honestly, my crafting energies have been put almost entirely into knitting and spinning, so some balance would be wonderful.

I look forward to crossing these items off the list and sharing the finished objects with you!

    Can’t wait to see the results, especially for the mohair. Good Luck!

    Love the quilt idea! I too have been meaning to make cloth napkins. No one understands the importance I attach to having cloth napkins! I will do it soon, inspired by you!
