Most bloggers are a step ahead of me. They've already posted about their 2010 knitting goals and aspirations. Deb Gemmell says she intends to 'prioritize and organize'. Sorry, Deb. Let's talk knitting, not housework.
Ysolda intends to 'clear out clutter'. Again, it smacks of housework, to me.
Isa intends to knit from her queue. A goal with a specific end. Management would approve.
a-black-pepper says she has no specific plans but intends to go with the flow. Aaaah. This sounds better.
Knitting To Stay Sane intends to carry on with skills started in 2009. Pattern design and spinning. Only part of that appeals to me.
My problem, I think, is having spent too many years in the corporate world where life revolves around goal setting, goal achieving (or not) and goal reviewing. In my mind, all corporate activities.
Now retired and free from such
And so, I cringe to say it, but I have set a knitting goal for 2010.
I am going to spend the year with Elizabeth Zimmermann. It will be, I hope, a sort of 'Julie and Julia' experience without the late night dinners and pounds of butter. I will knit my way through Elizabeth's patterns. And, when the stash fails to meet the yarn needs, I intend to use her wool.
Having publicly declared this goal, I now expect to
A) be kept on track by my readers. Please! Please! Keep me on track.
B) be diverted by the rich and plentiful supply of patterns on the net and ravelry.
Off, now, to scour my EZ books for project number one.
