Welcome 2014

Hello to a brand new year! How exciting is it to start anew every year? I love it. It's a chance to make new choices and walk new paths, review old ones and keep what worked and toss what didn't.

I always think I won't make any resolutions but I do. I actually enjoy making lists. I have lots of aspirations for this year and I'll share a few of them...

One is to blog every week. Ever since we got the the iPad and then I got my phone, I've been slacking in the blogging department. I find sitting at our computer very tedious and I haven't found a good blogging app for the apple devices yet. If you know of one let me know. Anyway, I'm going to try to blog whether I have pictures to show or not. I like joining in with the Wednesday Yarn Along over on Ginny's blog and even if that's all I can manage, that will work for me!

I aspire to exercise more. I know this is such a common resolution at this time of year but I really feel the need to kick up my metabolism and take advantage of the activities we have around us. I have a kayak and I want to use it. I have rollerblades that need to meet the road more often. I have ice skates and public skating at the arena or if I can brave the cold, I can go outside, always open and free. I have an elliptical that collects dust but should be collecting miles if you know what I mean.

I have some knitting goals too of course...

For every skein of yarn I knit I'm going to throw $5 in a jar. I have no idea what the money is for yet but I wonder how much I'll save this year (and stash reduction is always a good thing). I'm not going to be sticky about whether or not I knit the entire skein or not, if I use up most of it, it counts.

I've decided to knit 12 pairs of socks this year and 12 shawls. I have most of the patterns and most of the yarn already. I think I can do it or at least make a really good stab at it. Even if I fail, I'll still have loads of new projects and lots of money in my savings jar.

So there you have it. Goodbye 2013, it was swell...

  1. Great goals for the new year. The Blogger app isn't the best for iPhone or iPad. It's real basic and I never really used it when I used Blogspot.
