2011 was an enormously satisfying year personally and professionally. I am incredibly blessed to have a terrific husband and 2 healthy, energetic boys. The Etsy shop took off faster than you can say Hootenanny, and I have enjoyed immensely keeping up with all the requests and coming up with new colorways.
That said, there are a few areas where I could stand some serious improvement. Without further ado, here are my 5 Yarny Resolutions for 2012:
1. Participate in Ravelry more.
Confession: I don’t always “get” Ravelry. Yeah, I can keep track of all my needle sizes, but that still doesn’t mean I actually know where they are. Plus, I spend so much time dyeing, volunteering, and mothering that there’s barely time for any social media. Pinterest? Forget it!
But I had the opportunity to hang out on The Rav one afternoon and found not only a wealth of information, but some fun folks hanging out as well. No convincing needed – this is one cool site.
2. Make time for knitting.
There’s always a “to do” list. No more excuses. KNIT NOW is my new mantra.
3. Go to a show/festival/retreat.
4. Work on new stripe patterns.
Up until now, always the same old Nice Girl stripes. Even rows – about 1/2″ wide. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Nice Girl stripes. But sometimes a
girl just wants to be a little bit Bad. Stay tuned….
5. Build up an inventory.
Yikes! Who knew? Could have sold tons more at Christmas and beyond if I had been prepared.
2012 – Will be a Yarny Year!
