A new year is always a great time to start fresh and set goals. A few friends of mine have posted theirs on Instagram so I’ve been mulling it over for a couple of weeks.
Finish my WIPs. It’s a biggie. After the holidays I rearranged the furniture in my work space, and I literally could not do so without first dismantling the towering pile of unfinished objects. I’m not even going to guess how many there are. I’ve set them aside and I’m trying to make some realistic decisions about what to keep working on. I might set deadlines for specific projects because it seems to work when I am knitting gifts, which are time-sensitive.
Start Christmas knitting in July. I managed to finish it all except for a pair of socks, but it definitely felt like a chore at times. Fall is such a busy time already, and my daughter will be starting kindergarten this year. Who knows what kind of time or energy I will have? Maybe less but maybe a lot more? lol
Buy with purpose. I work in a yarn shop so it is very easy to fall in love with something and take it home (and I used to work in a pet shop…hahaha). I’m not perfect but I will try to have a project in mind before buying any new yarn.
So, what about you? What kind of crafty goals have you set for 2017?
