Welcome to 2015! I hope the new year is starting off well for all of you. Ours has been quiet so far, which is generally how we like it.

I usually come up with some kind of knitting goals list to kick off the new year. My brain has been circling around to it for days, but so far…nothing. Last year, my noble and ambitious goal was simply to “knit more.” I think I did manage to accomplish that (at least compared to the previous year), but I can’t say that I have any new and exciting themes for 2015.

I have a feeling that my knitting will continue its trend toward smaller needles and finer fabrics. That’s not really a goal, just a consequence of my liking for finer fabrics. There’s a vague tickle in the back of my brain that says it might be time for some more colorwork…that could be fun. I’d like to continue working my way down through the stash, in a low pressure, non-exclusive kind of way. A steady diet of stash yarns would be good, though.

None of those “goals” feels particularly exciting or well-defined, but sometimes it’s time to simply carry on, so that’s what I plan to do. I have a feeling that the first half of this year will be a lot of quietly carrying on, followed by some bigger changes that are a little too far off to see clearly yet.

And in the meantime, I will knit. (Something.)

How about you? Anything exciting on your knitting horizons?
