One thing off the list

Well, I've gone and done it. I have finished my mother's sweater.

I seem to recall this being on a list of New Year's Resolutions...Yep, sure was. Just as a reminder, I will copy and paste those resolutions here. Let's take a looksee at my progress:
  • Knit a sweater from a Japanese Pattern (I already have one picked out and have figured out possible yarn substitutes...and it won't cost me more that $40 to pull off...God, I love knitpicks!)
  • Knit two sweaters for myself
  • Knit two sweaters for Max (Cobblestone and something else. I'm all torn up inside between Jared and Beau, both from Vintage Knits)
  • Knit one sweater for my Mother
  • Spin on a regular basis
  • Abandon the Park and Draft method of spinning
  • Knit a sweater OF MY OWN DESIGN (this was a resolution of last year that I did not accomplish...on to round two!)
  • Focus more on lace projects
Not bad, right? A lot of these are happening, but they can only really be marked off when the year is over as they are ongoing practices more than they are concrete goal oriented. I have yarn for one of Max's two 2008 sweaters, yarn for a self-designed sweater (yet to be designed, lol), and I am SO CLOSE to finishing two sweaters for myself that I could slap myself for never working on them.

I must also toot my horn and say that I've made progress on the more personal resolutions that I did not list on this blog, the major contender being applying and attending graduate school. ::TOOT TOOT!::

Well, I will report back soon. I am feeling the sewing urge lately and hope to get my hands on some fabric really really soon...

Gorgeous sweater! And I'm happy to read how far you've come on your goals. Now if I could just cross one thing off my list ...
