We are, gladly, coming to the end of 2020 and it is time to make our New Year's Resolutions! And, as fiber fanatics, not only do we make resolutions in our lives, but we also make resolutions for our craft. So here is some information to help you make and meet your resolutions.
- Goals should be attainable and realistic. Many of us will say, "I am only going to knit from my stash!" But the problem is that we LOVE yarn and enjoy acquiring yarn. So the moment we buy a new skein we feel like we failed and just give up. So try a goal like: "Every project will use yarn from my stash and new yarn." or "For every project I make with new yarn I will make one with stash yarn."
- Write down your goals: All of the science says that if you write your goals down and read them from time to time you are much more likely to achieve them. It changes where you recall the information from in your brain and the very process of writing down the goal helps you clarify the goal. And we created a form for you!
- Goals should be measurable: As you write your goals and clarify exactly what you are trying to do, be sure to have a way to measure your progress. For example, if you want to finish UFO and WIPS, gather the ones you know you want to finish and have them in sight - even name them! Pull out the stash yarn you want to use this year and find projects for them.
- Share your goals: Share your goals with a friend who has similar goals and form an "accountability buddy." We created the YARNO game to help people write and make their goals - plus you get to earn prizes!
