WIP: Finishing what you started


A new year gives me that squeeky clean feeling, like starting a new quarter in school, cracking open a fresh notebook promising this time to keep your notes all organized.

In a way I almost feel like Mike Holmes from Holmes on Homes. Finding old knits, ripping them apart and starting them over to make it right. 

It is with that in mind that I am re-starting my arrowhead vest. Made in April 2010 and had all intentions of getting the pattern out there but I didn't. Now, I am re-working the pattern in Fibre Co. Acadia, a gorgeous light yarn. It's part of my new goal of 2012 – get things done!

Here are a few other things that I want to Get Done in 2012:

– Stash bust! It's time I give some of my yarn a new home. 

– Submissions! There's a deadline coming up and I need to focus and get some designs going.

– Balance between work knitting and knitting for pleasure.

– Keep up the blogging!

– Publish a pattern every other month. (I am not going to say monthly because that's a bit cray cray – BUT if I manage to do it, it will be a BONUS! hah!)

Thank you always for coming by and reading! I'm looking forward to a fabulous 2012!

    Oh my gosh, I’m so excited! I’ve been longing to knit the Arrowhead vest since April 2010! I can’t wait to see the pattern and cast on immediately!

    I love the feeling of a bright, shiny year with full potential ahead of us. Your goals are similar to mine (although releasing a new pattern every month is beyond my experience). Happy knitting!
