Do you know that goals and resolutions aren't the same thing? It never occurred to me that they might be different, but It was recently brought to my attention that they are. Goals have a measurable finish line (for example, a goal to knit a pair of socks) while a resolution is something with no end, something you want to incorporate into your life going forward (for example, a resolution to start each day with 30 minutes of quiet knitting time). I'm more of a goal setter than a resolution setter. I can't help it, I'm results oriented. I get a big thrill from ticking things off of a to-do list.
I'm happy to report that I met all of my goals for 2017 (yay, me!). Now I'm in the process of setting some goals for 2018. There will be socks, of course! Lots of socks! Though I'd like to design some non-sock patterns, too. There will also be a couple of more courses and challenges (fair isle, mosaic, and intarsia in the round are the most requested techniques). There will be a socks-by-numbers-worksheet so knitters can knit a pair of socks with any yarn at any gauge (I've already started working in this one), hopefully a book, and I'm launching a new business geared to my fellow designers. 2018 will be a fun and exciting year!
I didn't really set any resolutions for 2017, but for 2018, I'd like to start and end each day with some quiet knitting time. I'd like to keep my office clean instead of letting it get so out of hand that it takes an entire weekend to sort out (which is how I manage it now).
Do you set goals or resolutions? What are your knitting goals and resolutions for 2018?
