Our New Years Knitting "Resolutions" with Clauses

Every year knitters resolve to not buy more yarn… the dreaded “yarn diet”.  And like all resolutions, they are made to be and will be broken. It’s really just a matter of how long before they are. We are taking a different focus...

And on that note, we’ll get right to the point: these are our New Year’s Knitting Resolutions, and we intend to make ones we can keep… with disclaimers in parenthesis. 

  1. Go on yarn diet. (After we buy way more yarn than we need because it’s on sale and we didn’t get every skein on earth we could have possibly wanted for the holidays.)
  2. Do not cast on more projects until we finish all of our WIPS. (Cast on 15 WIPS on Dec 31.)
  3. Buy more needles. (To cast on more projects.)
  4. Finally take that class to learn a new technique. (So you can cast on more projects.)
  5. Join a knitting group for camaraderie. (And to buy more yarn.)
  6. Save all your Christmas money. (To buy that sweater’s worth of yarn you have been lusting after.)

Happy New Year, to all of our yarn lovers! May your year be full of fibre and fun!

There are so many special things about the knitting community, but the one that stands out is our tremendous capacity to give. We convert our hearts, our souls, our labor into our magnificent creations. We create warmth. We create comfort. We create style. We do this with our own hands. We then selflessly share our creations and ourselves with those in need. We pour our love, our frustrations, our trauma into our textiles and then we selflessly give them to help others. As a community, this has become our defining act.
