I Resolve . . . ???


As a general rule I resolve to never make New Years’ Resolutions.  But I got this in a Knit-N-Purl newsletter and I just had to share.  This is awesome!  I would like to amend this list to add “crochet” along with every reference to knitting.   😀 . . .

Resolutions

 

This is the time when most people make their resolutions for the new year. These are thought to have begun with the ancient Babylonians or Romans. It is believed that less than 10% of the people who make resolutions achieve them.

    10 hours a day of knitting or crocheting seems a bit ambitious…unless you’re doing it professionally. Let us know how you do wiht that one.

    Funny list of resolutions. I like the idea of logging the books in Ravelry.com. I also like the idea of having a shelf to put them on. At the moment they’re in a pile on the desk under my computer.

    • Yah, I found it quite amusing myself! I finally put all that I could of my books/magazines in my Ravelry. That was quite a chore. Also was gifted some cabinets with doors to get organized. I am a happy crafter! Good luck with your venture. 😀
