I enjoy setting resolutions for the coming year. I used to just set "intentions", but I think I've become more disciplined in the past few years. So last year, my goals we're three-fold:
1. Attain & maintain a weight of 197. Oops, didn't quite make the mark on that. Last weigh in, I was at 206... So I lost 2 pounds since the beginning of the year! And maintaining is a real bitch, let me tell you. I worked too damn hard on my 70-pound weight loss to gain it back, so. Keep working on it!
2. Save $1,000 and go to the NY State Sheep & Wool Festival in Rhinebevk, NY. Done! I got to meet Tina in person and spent a fast weekend with her and her rad husband, along with Lisa and Leah from my local knitting group. I'm already trying to scheme a way to visit Tina again in 2012! Rhinebeck was such a treat, the shopping was phenomenal!
3. Knit 11 sweaters in 2011. This resolution was SERIOUSLY tested as I bound off the 11th and final sweater at 10:20pm last night! So proud of myself for really pushing myself and knitting beautiful sweaters this year. Full recap to come, promise!
So then, in 2012, what goals lie ahead? Well, of course to maintain my weight, that's really a lifestyle commitment rather than a goal at this point! I also thought about committing to saving for another tattoo, a big one. But that seems pretty expensive in light of our big house purchase this month and all of those new expenses! So, I for sure have one big knitting goal:
Knit 12 baby sweaters or baby blankets in 2012! There were many babies born last year to knit for, and 2012 is already shaping up to be quite a doozy, between close friends, family members, and coworkers. I've got some good ideas to come, so stay tuned. Any resolutions for you in 2012?
