2009 Resolutions

1. Loose more weight, I'm hoping to fit into a size 12 wedding dress by 11th July (yes, a date has been set). 3 stone down, 2 to go.
2. Make the said wedding dress.
3. Make a shawl for the wedding.
4. Make a dress for my little bridesmaid.
5. Knit 12 pairs of socks - one a month - from stash yarn. I want to try a Yarnissima pattern, another Cookie A pattern, one fair isle (hopefully Harika when I get some contrast yarn) and one with twisted stitches. I also have to finish the Kilt Hose.
6. Keep up with the Socktopus sock club patterns.
7. Make another garment for me. Dawn advised something top down with negative ease so it doesn't matter if I lose more weight. Any ideas? I am currently thinking of the Honeycomb vest from Knitty
8. Spend less time online and more time knitting/crocheting/sewing!

Good resolutions! What's worrying it that the first 4 have to be completed by July11th! Do a search on ravelry for top down and there's loads of patterns - you might find yourself knitting more than one!

Happy New Year to you. Good luck with the resolutions. I'm going to sit down and make mine this morning.

And I can't wait to see the wedding dress you make! What an incredible thing to do. x

Happy New Year! :D I share several of those resolutions, but have decided not to actually consciously make any, and just make 'to do' lists :) Either way for me they won't get done, and if they do, I'll be happy and pleasantly surprised ;D

Zephyr Style have some lovely top down knits btw, many with negative ease, or that could be made with negative ease quite nicely...
