Play it again, Sam.

It's only fitting on New Year's Day to talk about New Year's Resolutions.  I thought I would see what I wrote last year. Well, it's embarrassing, I did not take myself seriously. Coincidentally, I came across these projects (and more UFO's) as I unpack my yarn room.  Side comment, yarn room needs a different name, any suggestions?

I've updated the status of these projects:
Frogged1.  Rambling Ruffle- started in 2011

2.  Rhinebeck Cardigan a/k/a Vine Yoke Cardigan - started January 2011.
3.  Lacey Beaded Scarf a/k/a English Mesh Scarf - started November 2011. Yay! Finished!
4.  Lima Top Down Sweater - started September 2011. Finished the body and 1/2 a sleeve.
Frogged 5. Braided Cowl -started September 2011.
6.  Striped Cardigan a/k/a Shore - started March 2010 (curse you Ravelry for that lovely bit of information). Put on a shelf high up, this project annoys me.  Elizabeth I can "hear" you shaking your head at me, couldn't you stop the madness?  You were there! ;)
7.  Switcheroo Sock - started September 2009 (Oy!) Wicked second sock syndrome.  
Not sure if I'll finish or frog.
8.  Color Block Mohair Scarf - started December 2011.  
Made a some progress, need to find a three more colors.
It's an embarrassment of riches and not necessarily in a good way.  The list has increased.  My husband says there should be a 12-step program.  Maybe he's right.  (Don't tell him I said that.)
In 2011, I attempted to keep the number of projects I had going at one time to 4.  I was able to maintain that number until around October.  Between Rhinebeck and all the tempting fall yarns, I lost my resolve.

So, without further ado, hear are my new/revisited resolutions:

4 projects at a time seemed manageable and kept my attention and I actually finished things.

1 project from stash yarns. 
1 project that's been hibernating, frog or finish.
1 project with new yarn.  Let's face it, there are always going to be new tempting yarns.
1 project that is a design or class prep.

 They are unimpressed.

So there it stands, in front of virtual and canine witnesses.  Let the knitting/crocheting begin.

Isn't it so liberating? Love the unimpressed pets. Too, too cute. Good luck with your fibre-related resolution.
