Edited to add: WordPress just ate my blog post. It was long, it was clever. I waxed poetic about the Pope visiting and the fact that Zac Efron never will. I even made resolutions. This is all that is left.
I’ve spent a lot of time the last week or so thinking about what I would like my New Year’s Resolutions to be. Specifically, what was I going to put on the blog about Knitting Resolutions. For a while I thought I’d skip the whole resolution thing and just do a Top 10 of Knitting Things to Do this year. I thought about a recap of
all most of the sweaters I knit in my 12 in 2012 challenge to myself. And then I got kind of down on myself. See, I didn’t knit 12 sweaters in 12 months. By my book, that should be a FAIL. But wait, I’ve got a couple of cool sweaters out of the deal. I made sweaters for gifts. I have 3 almost done sweaters on the needles. So… that’s not really an epic failure. I have even caught sight of 2 sweaters I made for our new nephew being worn. That’s more like a pretty cool year. I think I will do a recap of the Year of Sweaters, but not today. Today, it’s about resolutions.
Besides, there are stores that could possibly be dependant upon my yarn budget. I couldn’t possibly put them out of business! Plus, for the first time I signed up for the Blue Moon Fiber Arts Rockin Sock Club. I cancelled another club that I was in so that I could justify this one. I’ve looked at the Rockin Sock Club for a long time. The thing that strikes me with their yarn is that often the color combinations are not what I would choose. However, once knitted up, they are amazing. I have been really impressed with their yarn and I’m looking forward to this one.
