Looking Back at 2008

A dear friend, knitter and blogger posted about resolutions for the up and coming year. I found it interesting and compelling enough to really take stock in what I've accomplished and what I'm looking forward too.

Granted I'm not one for making resolutions anymore. I used to be...then I figured if I didn't try to evolve or become better during the year then why put up promises that you can't keep. Yet I'm curious to see what I've done over the past year and peeps let me tell you, I was a little surprised to see just how much was done.

People... 29 projects have been completed in 2008... 29.

Of that lot, there were 3 scarfs, 3 hats, 10 socks and 8 sweaters. Yowzah! I really had no clue. So, looking back and seeing that makes it a little intimidating for setting goals of the next year, but here it goes.

My Top 9 for 2009:
  1. Finish the Pea Coat
  2. St. Brigid
  3. Celtic Icon
  4. Postwar Mittens
  5. 4 hats for whole family
  6. 4 scarfs for whole family
  7. 8 pairs of socks
  8. Spin at least one day a week
  9. Design another pattern

So, what do you think? Not terribly unreasonable, right?

I'm not surprised by your total output for the year. It seemed as though every time I blinked, you had finished another sweater. :)

I look forward to seeing your next design! The first couple have been quite impressive.

Congratulations on all you have accomplished - that's really quite impressive!!

I think this new list is totally doable - you're so quick with the needles that you'll probably be looking for more by about July or August :-) And hey - anytime you want to spin, let me know, 'cause I'll spin, too! I have a LOT of Corriedale awaiting the wheel.
