Knitting Resolutions

First, let me state that I'm new at this and generally a private person, so have patience with me.

I have been knitting for about 3.5 years now, but I have decided that I will start knitting seriously this year :D On a positive note, I completed my first project of the year on Sunday. It's a scarf for my hubby....made with one of my favorite yarns, Noro Transitions. I love the pattern. It was complicated enough to keep me interested, but not scare me off from finishing.

As for my resolutions, here they are....

This year I will:
1. Always have a project in progress.
2. Finish most of my projects.
3 Make a garment (sweater) for myself.
4. Learn some new techniques (I'm interested in learning to knit socks and cables)
5. I want to try to design my own creation.

Thanks if you've made it this far and wish me luck!!!
