In 2009 I Resolve to …..

dsc01988Eat more vegetables and completely avoid Lima Beans and Creamed Corn. (I already have the last part down. Just need to work on the first part.)

Frog the UFO’s that I don’t like and stop feeling guilty about it. Life is too short to spend time knitting something you don’t completely love. (Photo: Top scarf: Finished, Second Scarf: about to be frogged, Third Scarf: already frogged, Fourth Scarf: Finished, Fifth Scarf: still like, need to finish, Sixth Scarf: Finished.)

Start enjoying exercise instead of looking at it as an evil necessity. I’m sure that’s possible. Somehow.

Spend more time keeping up with friends and spend less time working.

Buy several more knitting bags. (I already have this one down, too.  You need to be sure to throw in some resolutions which guarantee success from the get go.)

dsc02303Stop staring at the yarns that are on my desk “to be knit next” and just get to them. The colors are gorgeous, the yarn is soft, and I’m anxious to see how they knit up.

Clean out the back room in the basement. There. I said it.

Worry less and pray more.

Plan next year’s Christmas knitting list early. And then do something about it in a timely manner. FPS.

Do things to bug my two kids as often as possible. (Hee – just wanted to see if they were reading the blog today….)

Continue practicing Random Acts of Kindness all year long instead of just thinking about it in December.

Happy New Year to all of you! We have lots of fun things planned for The Loopy Ewe in 2009, and we look forward to sharing them with you as the year progresses. Thanks for making 2008 such a wonderful year.  You all are the best!

  1. My new years resolution is knitting related… naturally. I have joined the NaKniSweMoDo 2009 group on Ravelry, and my resolution is to knit 12 sweaters this year. It’s quite an undertaking, but so far (since it’s only Jan. 2), I am confident about getting them done.

  2. I plan to knit more and snack less 🙂 I also spend too much time on ravelry which causes less knitting time so I need to cut back on that. My stash is outrageous(muffinknits)
    Quick question-Will you be carrying Oceanwind Knits again? Not that I NEED more yarn…
    Happy New Year!

  3. Have a Happy New Year to Sheri and the Elves and WH and also CG and CB.

    Loved your resolutions, gives me the heart to do some to.

    1. Knit more for myself. Mine always gets put aside for every gift and become UFOs
    2. Get school work done promptly and ahead of time so there is more time for #1.
    3. Live healthy (I do hate lima beans) and get back to organic (I have been feeling off key since i wasnt able to.)
    4. Keep better contact with those people who really like me.
    5. Find a way to save money to buy yarn so i can d #1.
    6. Continue gifting little items to those i cherish and love.
    7. Actually get my garden in this year!
    8. Get electric and watrer etc set up so i can do #7.
    9. Have fun every day.
    10. Make others day happy. (Something i like t do)


  4. I only have one resolution for this year and that is to use and enjoy my nice things instead of saving them for whatever reason. It’s dumb. What if I get run over by a truck next week and haven’t used any of my pretties? That would be a waste. So I’m gonna drink the fancy teas, knit with the ‘spensive yarns, wash with the handmade soaps, eat off the pretty dishes, wear the nice things, and spin the cashmere.

  5. I resolve to learn to knit socks and be good at it. I have studied them, have books on socks and don’t see any reason why I can’t teach myself how to knit them even if I am self taught and don’t know a single person who knits! I have very limited resources where I live in Georgia, so I have to depend on the internet and blogs. When I turned my first heel, I woke my husband up to show him. He looked at it with one eye open, said “yea” then went back to sleep. But my two dachshunds, Tink and Rue, rejoiced with me and we all had a bite of chocolate!. Yea for me and my sock heel !!!!! Life is good.
