Good luck with those resolutions!

The stash reducing ones are the hardest :-) I've got a very good limit: as long as it fits into the big zip bag from the mattress topper, I can grab it and run out of the house in case of fire or floods:-) (And yes, it does fit)

P.S. Mr beest thinks the name of your blog sounds like the name of a band. When is your first CD coming out? ;-)

Hooray for you for taking time to resolve. My resolutions sit in a cloudy gray area in the recesses of my mind waiting to come to fruition. Add me to this list of alcoholic fathers and a misspent youth dating the same.

If you have some charity yarn (aka, scratchy) that you don't think you'll use, I have a friend here in town who works with refugees, and she's asked if I know where she can get yarn on the cheap for a Bangladeshi woman who makes baskets and such out of them.

I need to work on reducing my stash, too. I was actually pretty good in 2009, for the most part, and my latest mittens were total stash busters. My first 2010 project, though, is newly purchased yarn - Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool to make a child's sweater. I'll be sending that over to Afghanistan, though, so it won't be in stash for long. You might consider Afghans for Afghans for charitable knitting (I'm sending this to a cousin who's stationed there to pass along to a local).

Good for you - on resolutions past and present. Congrats on past accomplishments and good luck with this year's challenges.

Mary Lou

Happy New Year. Glad to hear you quit smoking. I haven't quite got the speeding down yet myself..

tammy

Good luck! You're right, by the way, sock yarn does count. At some point it may actually start to take over the stash. ;)

Kym

That kimono sweater is really going to be lovely. And warm. Great knitting resolutions. I'm still thinking on mine. . . but they're definitely going to follow the stash-busting theme.

Lorette

I like the resolutions! The raglan pattern looks like a winner, I might have to try a top-down sweater this year.

Good luck with your resolutions -- very inspiring, especially the sock yarn clause! And thanks for sharing your year -- there is always so much to be grateful for when we take time to pay attention.

Chris

Heh, tricksy resolutions, you. :) So one of the best things ever for helping me keep my driving speed down? My car's spedometer reading 5 mph faster than actual speed. I FEEL like I'm speeding like crazy, but not so much. :D

Enjoyed your resolutions.
Years ago, I resolved not to make resolutions. Only one I've ever been able to stick with...

Helen

use up stash? or use up your stash?
'cause if I swore to use up my stash I'd have to start knitting on boat oars with many strands at a time... or get a machine...
AND do nothing else for the year including read, sleep, blog...

But I will be trying to use up more of my stash.

Cookie

Good list. Totally doable, but no one will die if you don't do it. That's always a plus. ;^)

Miss T

Use up stash??? That would only prompt me to acquire more stash.
