of my crafting goals – not even close!
This year I am giving myself a much bigger break than the other goals
that I have. Why? Because I really do all of my crafting for my
own enjoyment. It is typically a
relaxing activity for me (except around Christmas when I tend to put the
pressure on myself), so why do I need goals at all? Well, again, it gives me something so strive for. What are my goals
regarding crafting this year?
year. It is something that I definitely
enjoy, especially because it seems that I can whip up projects in such a short
amount of time (which is the complete opposite of knitting for me!).

love to also do some pajama pants for the kids, I never seem to be able to get
the sizes that I need, either the waist fits but they are too short or the
length is right but they fall off when the kids are running around.

concerned about a little taking off with my yarn while I am not looking (or I

sweaters for the kids and also for myself.
I’m not sure I will knit something for myself…I really like knitting for
kids because it doesn’t take nearly as long.
However, I think that knitting a sweater for myself would be
kids (and maybe Matt!). I realized over
Christmas that the kids preferred wearing a cowl that I had rather than their
scarves, and it stayed on a heck of a lot better. Cowls for kids seems like a relatively easy
project, so I will be starting that after I finish the final two Christmas

older and I can do a bit more, and I hope that I carve out the time to actually
do what I set out to, instead of letting the time escape me.
year? Do you want to knit more, learn a
new crafting skill? And quilters – tell me
the truth, is it really difficult? Or
have I been psyching myself out too much?
