2009 Crafty Resolutions

Here is my list of crafty New Year resolutions for 2009. You'll notice some items from 2008 made it onto the 2009 list. Oh well - it is worth another shot at finishing some things. Here we go, in no particular order:

1) Finish the following UFOs:

2) Design more stuff and write more crochet patterns including: coasters, fingerless mittens, and pot holders.

3) Try to sell a project - either on Etsy, at a craft fair, or word-of-mouth. (I'm thinking a purse or coaster set are possible sellers.)

4) Learn to knit socks on double pointed and/or circular needles

5) Go to MS&W 2009 (this is a no-brainer)

6) Visit the new Lion Brand Yarn Studio in NYC.

7) Complete the following new projects:
  • Make at least 1 blanket for donation (charity TBD)

  • Baby blankets for Decklin or Saoirse (due in May)

  • Baby blankets for the other babies that are sure to be announced in 2009

  • Traditional crocheted tablecloth for future Sister-in-law

  • A shawl from the Amazing Crochet Lace book

8) Take another class at Joann's - cake decorating, sewing or quilting.

Any other suggestions? Add a comment.

I'll update the list as items are completed. I'm sure there will be random projects that pop up now and again throughout the year. The unexpected can sometimes be fun.

Wishing a safe, prosperous and happy New Year to you all!
