Happy New Year! With the new year here, why do we feel obligated to create goals? My answer to that is so we can be a better person than we were the year before. Although these are my Craftolutions, my knitting, sewing, and on the path to enlightenment declarations, if I make someone happy by making something handmade for them, then it will be worth my time and make me feel good in the process.
I would like to knit, crochet, or sew something for charity. There are several charities that knit for babies or animal shelters that can always use blankets. I am not going to put a number on how many items I will make and donate, I can only say that I will do what I can throughout the year. A few that I have Googled are Knitting for Charity, Knit-a-Square, and Hugs for Homeless Animals. Reading through these websites makes me feel like I should have done this ages ago.
So, what are your New Year's Resolutions? As long as you stay postive and set realistic goals, then you can achieve them. If you are having trouble, see me and I will help you stay on track. But, I also reserve the right to get your support with keeping me on track! Here is to 2011 [clink your knitting needles, crochet hooks, sewing needles, and book bindings together now]!
