Branching Out - Again

I believe I covered the waterfront pretty well in 2006, as I pursued most all of my knitting resolutions:
1. learn to knit socks
2. give felting a try
3. consider beaded lace knitting
I plan to continue the trend of branching out from my comfort base again this year. Naturally, there will be more socks, especially with the goal of using new (to me) techniques like toe-up, French heels and stranded knitting.

Aside from working on a few improvements to this website, I've got some other ideas rumbling around inside La Cabeza Grande (my big, giant head) that may well mean some of my designs actually move from sketch-book page to pattern in 2007. Don't know how all this will play out, but I've already taken the first steps. More when this nascent plan evolves beyond the notion stage.

So nothing big in the resolution department. Just a vague plan to keep moving forward and allow the creative part of me to flourish a bit more.

Excellent resolutions. I hope you continue to blog about your knitting adventures as I thoroughly enjoy hearing about your triumphs. I also hope I can be here for you for those times when solace and support are needed. Now I'm hoping I don't sound too much like a stalker! :-D Happy New Year, Karen!

Here's to a wonderful 2007 to you! May those rumbling ideas come to reality and those darn physical buggers kept away! (does that make sense?) Me too, trying to get those little sketches into reality. Hmm, my first step is not so many sketches on little pieces of paper here and there :) Terry

Best wishes with your future plans! I'm having the same problems and just had to put myself out there to get anything accomplished :)

I can't comment on beaded lace knitting, other than to shout "I wanna do that too!", but felting is dead easy and serious fun as long as you DON'T try to do it by hand in the sink. Or by foot in the shower. And socks, well, socks are the business. Socks are where it's at. Join the ranks of the sock-addicted...
