Happy 2010

Happy New Year everyone!

I am feeling very inspired after having just watched Julie & Julia and the ideas are just spinning through my head as to a similar project I could do with my knitting.
I thought about picking a knitting book out of my library and knitting every pattern in it the same way that one of the movie's protagonists, Julie, cooked all of the recipes in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. As much fun as that sounds, I cannot decide on which book to choose.

How about a regular ol' New Year's Resolution?
I know, I know. Every so often I come back and say that I will blog more often. Finish my UFO's before casting on a new project. Knit from the stash instead of buying new yarn. Organize the forever-expanding yarn stash, needle collection and library of knitting books. Knit for at least 30 minutes every day. Those are the usual stand-by resolutions for myself and many other knitters out there. Been there, done that (albeit not very successfully...)

When it comes down to it, I think that my New Year's resolution is just going to be: Enjoy my knitting. Learn new things. Not be intimidated by difficult techniques. Crochet an entire project. Knit a shawl. And finish or frog all my current projects (I can't have a resolution list without including that one...) OK, OK, so that's more than one. But they can all be summed up in two words: Have fun!!

Good luck to everyone and Happy Knitting in 2010!!
