I am hoping that 2010 is going to be an abundant year of finished objects. I am not good at doing more than one project at a time, is what I'm noticing. I tend to be a monogamous knitter. But when it comes to buying yarn, I think I am way to loose. At the present I am off the chain with more than I can possibly think of using up for at least years and years.
So I vow to not buy yarn until The Homespun Party coming in March. I have lessened my visit to yarns sites and shops, in hopes that I won't be tempted. I have some beautiful yarn in my stash and if I want to go shopping, all I need do is look into my stash. I am trying to figure out a way to display my yarn so that it's in my face sort-a-speak.
Today I pulled out this yarn and I am going cast on for a hat and hopefully finish it tonight. I am using the "One day hat" by The Rainey Sisters. It's a free pattern.
I asked Chelette to join me on the post because we were discussing this earlier. Here is her entry:
Cici and I are so connected-- she sent me a BBM text and it was exactly what I was thinking . We needed to do a new post about knitting more in 2010. Earlier today we were doing our new favorite thing --video chatting --via Oovoo. We went through our 2009 projects on ravelry. This of course got our minds to focus on projects we would like to complete in 2010. At first, I said I would do a list of things that I wanted to complete in 2010 and then I thought nooooooo our knitting is supposed to be fun, stress free and all about me.
As I looked back, I see that I knitted quite a few things for other people. Cici wanted to know what was the last thing I actually knitted for me? And I couldn’t even think of what it was –I said it was the Cherry Garcia hat, but then was reminded that was by default because it was originally for my daughter. So as I looked in my projects the last thing I have done for me was my Central Park Hoodie(CPH) which was finished in February 2009…….I will not focus on that revelation.
I just finished a hat for DH and let’s just say this is the very first item I have knitted for him.
Also, yesterday when DD and I were out she pointed out that she didn’t have any fingerless mitts….hint hint you have made 2 sets for other people. LOL… the guilt set in and off to LYS we went and got yarn for her fingerless mitts. The fingerless mitts will be done in a day or so. Then there's one sock that is hanging over my head which is a joint belated birthday project with Cici for our baby sister.
After those commitments THE FUTURE WILL BE DEFINITELY ALL ABOUT ME:)
Thank you Beverly for showing me how to add ravelry projects to my postings.
