2009 commitments

I don’t make resolutions. I turn into a big bowl of pure fail if I do. So… this time it’s commitments. I can do those! I’m a pretty committed person.


  • Socks for soldiers – knit 30 – 40 minutes per day.  It’s not difficult, suck it up and do it girl – you enjoy it, the need is strong and you know it.
  • Get stash replenished.  1/4 of purchases will be socks for soldiers regulation yarns.
  • Learn color knitting and finish at least 2 major colorwork projects
  • Finish Grylions socks.  Geez!
  • Make yourself some socks – your feet are cold, you silly girl!
  • Finish your scarf – it’s beautiful and you know you want to.  Besides, it was a gift.
  • Make the freaking sweater – you know the one.
  • Make at least one lace shawl.


  • Get the divorce finalized and survive through it – well.  It’s the best thing and you know it. You’ve moved on.
  • Lose those pesky last 20 pounds.  Again, it’s the best thing and you know it.
  • Get back in school.
  • Pay it back and then start paying forward.
  • Get a new sewing machine and start sewing, quilting again


  • Keep moving forward.

    I can’t believe “replenish the stash” is on your list! I could just ship you half of mine and we’d both have enough to last out the year, at the very least, at least where quantity is concerned. Can’t say the quality is the best, as I inherited much of my stash, but even cheap yarn has its uses.

    Happy New Year and thanks for your comment on my blog!

    You’ve got some good commitments here… maybe I should make some too.
    Bye the way, wow, steeks!? You daredevil!!! Goodluck with that and I’m looking forward to your FO’s!
