Normally I'm a big fan of New Years, but this year I'm feeling a bit 'meh' about it all. I can't help but feel like nothing ever changes from year to year and am reminded of a Nine Inch Nail lyric 'I believe I can see the future, as I repeat the same routine'.
So, I have been setting myself some challenges to complete over the coming year. Most are craft related.
I have signed up to complete an 11 Shawls in 2011 challenge being run on Ravelry. I've already queued up more than eleven and doubtless more will be added to the queue, so I'll just pick whatever I fancy at the time I guess. In order to prepare, I have finished the Muir stole I've been working on for a while (well, it's off the needles, but I won't block it until I am back in my house). This left me with a bit of a gap between finishing that and casting on for the challenge, so I started a simple little kerchief in the beautiful silk yarn I received in a swap a few months ago. I'm going to be casting on for the Hemlock Ring Blanket for another KAL on the first though, so I'll have a lot of work to do before I can get shawl-ing!
I would like to blog much more, so I'm committing myself now, here in writing, to posting a minimum of two entries per month.
I'd also like to loose more weight, but that's a personal thing, not a craft-y thing.
Have a fantastic New Year everyone, and here's to achieving all our goals in 2011!
