New Year Knitting Resolutions
- Let’s Knit
Start 2017 off in the best way possible
Set a knitting goal a day
Us knitters are very busy people, and even though we’d ideally like to spend every hour of the day knitting, that’s just not possible. So, why not set yourself a realistic goal every day? This can be as simple as spending half an hour on a project, reading the latest copy of Let’s Knit for daily inspiration, or maybe you’ll have your sights set on becoming the nation’s fastest knitter!
Clean out your yarn stash
This must be knitters most common resolution! A fresh year means a clear knitting storage box that isn’t full of oddments and other shameless items. Even better, we’ve put together a blog on how to use up your stash right here!
Learn a new technique
If you’ve always wanted to learn a new stitch or knitting technique, then January is the time to do it. Find a project that will allow you to practice over and over, then the world is your oyster!
Finish those projects!
Be honest… how many incomplete projects did you rack up in 2016? Before you get started on any new ones, why not finish them off? You’ll be so relieved once you see them complete, and not lying around making you feel all guilty.
Go out of your comfort zone
If you’re an avid toy creator, why not have a go at knitting a garment, or vice versa! It’s so easy to stick with what you know and feel comfortable with, but you’ll really feel like you’ve accomplished something when you knit away from your comfort zone.
Teach someone else
There’s no point in keeping your amazing skills to yourself! Take the time once a week to teach friends and family the art of knitting, and they’ll soon become an addict like you.
