New Years Knitting and Resolutions To Knit Even More

Published by Ruth Haydock on

I quite happily annoyed my whole family on New Years eve by asking each one of them to share their resolutions for 2017 with me. I was not happy with a “err I don’t know…” and continued to ask until my family had at least pondered it for a minute. Understandably they asked to know mine and I was happy to share!

My not so very inventive or original list of resolutions:

The easy ones…

  • Crochet lots!
  • Knit more
  • Draw again (cause I have missed it)

The standard stupid cliché ones…

  • Get fitter and healthier
  • Be happier
  • Be more adventurous
  • Visit a new country
  • Read more

The meaningful ones…

They may not seem too meaningful but to me they will be tough and will take a lot of effort on my part.

  • Go vegan or at least a bit more vegan, because I don’t like hurting other creatures in any way. It will be hard and yes cheese is yummy but this is important to me and I can do it!
  • Be free. I value being free so much and my greatest fear at times is losing that freedom. I put a whole lot of restrictions on myself with a poor self esteem and my mind builds walls with ny anxiety, preventing me from being truly free. I can be what I want to be in 2017 or at least get a bit closer to it.

I am pleased to report that I have knitted or crocheted every day in January, worn clothes that represent me to work and worn my hair to show my undercut again.
Bring on 2017!

Please share what your resolutions are for the year and we can encourage each other to reach those goals!
